I got a fantastic deal on apples this week at the store. At Meijer this week they have 3# bags of red delicious apples as part of their 10/$10 sale. So I picked up 5 bags. I'm not sure if this is just a regional deal or not, but check your ads. My four kids LOVE apples so I was so excited about getting this great deal! You will also notice that apples are included much more than normal in my meal plan.
