    Mmm, stuffed crust pizza. =) I make pizza all the time but have never done stuffed crust; I believe that’ll be next on my list!

    Is $2.09 an average price for milk in your area? Ours has gone down to $1.09 at Aldi, from $1.69, and it’s been wonderful! I’m amazed at how much prices can vary from state to state.

      We love stuffed crust pizza! My older two children are each in charge of planning and making one meal a week (with supervisor as needed from me, depending on what they are making), so this is what my 10-yr old chose.

      And yes, this is an average milk price for us. Your price is unbelievable!! When we first moved to the Carolinas 4 years ago, we were paying almost $4 a gallon – so I am NOT complaining.?

  • Beth says:

    Thanks! Great deals this week that I was able to get at our local store (Buehler’s) too–especially the Lance Crackers. Thanks for sharing!
