As you gather with family to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday, be sure not to skip your weekly shopping trip! The Memorial Day weekend will feature killer deals on everything for your cook-out – from hamburgers and hot dogs to condiments like mustard, ketchup and relish. You’ll also score great prices on paper plates, plastic cups, napkins and even soda. While you’re at it, pick up some snack items like cookies, granola bars, fruit snacks, chips and juice for use later in the season. Some of these items are loss leaders (look for them on the front of your store’s circular), so invest for the whole summer!
Once you’ve picked up the great deals, plan your BBQ with the recipe ideas below. Have a great weekend!
The Perfect Tri Tip – As CEO of www.TheGroceryGame.com, I’m all about saving money. Beef is now at a 10-year high, and since my husband is a steak lover, I’ve been looking for a inexpensive alternative for our summer BBQs. I stock up on steaks when “choice” is featured on the front page of the sales circular, which is usually half off the regular price. But I’ve found that Tri Tip is a great option at about $1.25 per serving, but only if you cook it right.
With that said, I’ve learned to love my BBQ rotisserie. Plus it’s great for parties, since it’s basically hands-off. I finally discovered the perfect Tri Tip, and it does require a rotisserie. After being unsatisfied with Tri Tip on the grill or any other way, I’ve done it this way now several times and always good. Tri Tip is often on sale, but it doesn’t have a lot of marbling, so that’s why this method makes it juicy and perfect! Here’s my recipe and instructions for The Perfect Tri Trip on my recipe site, called “The Kitchen.”
Here’s a video of one of my summer BBQs, where I demonstrate my own discovery for the very best BBQ corn on the cob, with several recipes from side dishes to appetizers, always money saving.
