Anytime someon has ice cream on sale, I'm game -- especially when the mercury is busting 100.
So kudos to Food Giant (locations on Porter Avenue in Biloxi and Orange Grove) for putting Blue Bunny on sale 2 for $5. Your choice of flavors in stock. Yum!
Speaking of keeping cool, soft drinks are always a good way to quench a thirst and everyone has sodas on sale this week. But Rouse's has the best deal of the day -- four 12-packs of Coca-Cola products for $10. The other stores have soda sales, but none as good as Rouses.
Speaking of Rouses, the stores in Long Beach and Gulfport are hosting cooking demonstrations by Chef Nino. Long Beach's are 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday while Gulfport's is 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday.
The sale circular doesn't say what he's going to whip up, but if you're Food Channel junkie, this is a chance to see a chef at work in the flesh.
If you're thinking of doing a little cooking of your own (on the grill maybe?) then Winn Dixie may be worth a trip. They have the best deal of the week on ground chuck at $1.49 a pound ($1.99 if you want it already made into patties).
And if you want something a little more than burgers, Winn Dixie also has sirloin tip roast for $2.99 a pound.
Enjoy your weekend and happy hunting in the aisles!
