Cream Of Garbage Soup And This Week's Ridley's (Associated Food) Sales 2/8

 A dear reader, Amy, posted a comment and asked for more information about Cream of Garbage Soup. If you are a long time reader you may remember it. Cream of Garbage Soup is my children's name for the pot of soup I concoct periodically to use up leftover veggies, starchy foods, and meat. Since I live in Idaho, and I am usually the recipient of several 50 pounds bags of potatoes every fall, our pot of soup usually always includes potatoes. Cream of Garbage soup evolved from my mother in law's potato soup recipe. I have tweaked it over the years to suit what I have on hand, and my family's tasted. Soup is a great way to use up leftover odds and ends. If you are interested in reading all about Cream of Garbage soup you can check it out HERE.

I'm a little disappointed in Ridley's sale ad this week. There were not a lot of super fabulous deals. I am noticing that more and more with most of  my local grocery stores weekly grocery sales ads. I have started    buying more basic staples when I go shopping and making more things from scratch. Well, enough of the whining, these items did seem to be a fairly good price:
  • W.F. (56 oz) carton of Ice Cream (assorted varieties) $2.15
  • Nestle  Cocoa Mix (10 count) box $.85 each
  • Fresh Pork Picnic Roast $.89 pound
  • Honeysuckle White Ground Turkey (4 pound bag) $5.99 each
  • Fresh Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts $1.99 pound
  • Boneless Pork Sirloin Chops $1.59 pound
  • Small Pink Lady Apples $.99 pound
  • Tomatoes $.99 pound
  • Three pound bag of Clementines $3.99 each
I noticed last week the Ridley's has raised the price of Harper's Homemade Bread back up to $1.69 a loaf. I have noticed the price has increased on Harper's bread at the other grocery stores, as well. Costco still sells it in a twin pack for $3.25.

Don't forget to check out Nel's Bi Lo Market for in store specials this week.


  1. I love the name! My grandfather would call it "trip around the kitchen"

  2. We do the same thing. Except we call it stoup..my grandpop named it. All leftovers go into the freezer to be used for some kind of soup or stew.

    It doesn't always taste the same but it is always good.

    Great job...


  3. I really love this idea and the name just plain rocks!
