Cookin with Coupons

Cheese!  I love foods with cheese, and we have a good Kraft Cheese coupon this week.  My kids will be pleased.  The Kraft cheeses are all on sale, shreds and blocks.   Save $5 with any 10 participating cheese purchase.   Also, blocks are on sale $2/4  so you'll end up at $1.50 each.

My laziness keeps me from buying the blocks, but those are a bit better buy per shredded ounce.  Consider blends, and white cheese for cooking. Coupon links are provided for instant savings.  My plan this week is to shred when I buy.  Get the food processor out and shred 10 blocks.  Here we go!

Meal #1 Cheesy Harvest Pasta Bake

Bring on the ooey gooey cheese!  This is really easy, take one package of Barilla or Creamette Pasta from your stock and combine with fresh harvest vegetables like squash, onion, peppers, red potatoes-from last week's penny pinchers,  and toss with one package of Kraft three cheese blend.  Bake for 20 minutes at 400.  You can substitute a package of Harvest blend vegetables from frozen goods. Look for Picsweet or Green Giant blends.  I like to add in some black olives and mushroom pieces from the stockpile.  

Want a different taste?  Switch from harvest blend to broccoli and Mozzarella blends.  
Meal #2  Cheesy Ham and Hash
Combine one package of Hash Browns, 1 cup of cubed Ham, Farmland is on sale 5 lb for $5.95 (enough for several meals), 2 cans of Campbell's cream of potato soup,  2 bags of Kraft shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup of Prairie Farms sour cream, and 1 cup of Kraft Parmesan cheese.  Mix all and place in baking dish.  Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.

Meal #3 Cheesy Chicken and Rice
One of my goals is to fix more rice based meals.  I seem to get stuck on what to do with a big box of plain rice. Rice is relatively inexpensiveand easy to stock when it's on sale.   This one is simple recipe, mix 1 cup water, and 1 cup rice, 1 can of Campbell's cream of chicken soup, and a bag of mixed frozen veg in a baking dish.  Lay boneless skinless chicken breasts on top and cover with one Kraft package of cheddar cheese.    Bake covered at 350 for one hour.

  •  Farmland Ham, it freezes very well.  Cube BEFORE freezing for easier meal prep.
  •  CM Boneless Chicken Breasts with 48 hour sale only $3.88 for 2.5 lb bag
