Qu'ai-je acheter?

Even though I shop almost daily, I create meals around what is on special, what is in season, what is one sale; shopping at my neighborhood chain would be no different. So, what did I buy at my local Safeway?

I decided to take advantage of the following circular specials:

1 package of Safeway brand Italian sausages @ $2.99 per package
3 pounds of chicken thighs, skin on @ $2.99 per pound
2 pounds of boneless pork chops @ $3.99 per pound
1 box of Safeway brand penne pasta @ $1.00 per box
1 box of Safeway brand linguine pasta @ $1.00 per box
1 acorn squash @ $.99 per pound
1 eggplant @$1.79 each
1 pound of green asparagus @ $2.99 per pound
4 pounds of vine ripened tomatoes @ $.99 per pound
1 bag of yellow onions @ $2.99
1 jar of Bertolli pasta sauce @ $2.50 per jar
2 Honey Crsip apples @ 2.49 per pound
2 pounds of red grapes @ $3.99

How much did I spend? $43.31, which left me just enough to buy bread for the week. Knowing what I had at home in my pantry and fridge--eggs, cheese, butter, olive oil, chicken broth, rice, garlic, flour, white and brown sugar, wine--I was confident I could create seven delicious dinners (with leftovers for lunch!)
