Match a Coupon to a Sale, and an Item to a Recipe

Okay so we all know how to match a coupon to a sale, but what do you do with these items when you get home with them? Here's my new idea: match your sale item to a recipe. Since this is my first post on this topic I'm going to match an item that I got a few weeks ago, but that is on sale quite a bit at Meijer: kielbasa. Two weeks ago Meijer ran the buy one get two free sale so I've got a stock pile of kielbasa in my freezer. Here's the recipe match for this item:

Creamy Bean Soup (It is such a good fall dinner!)

1lb. Kielbasa (sliced in rounds or diced)
4-6 slices of bacon (diced)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 large onion (diced)
4 Tbsp. of butter
32. oz. of Busch's home style baked beans
3 c. half and half

Saute kielbasa, bacon, garlic, and onion in butter until bacon is cooked. Add beans and simmer for 3 minutes over med. to low heat. Add half and half. Increase or decrease half and half for preferred thickness. Serve with corn muffins (I use Jiffy - super cheap)

Tell me what you think!

Good idea! Here's another recipe to use up kielbasa

It sounds weird but tastes good (and I don't even like cranberry sauce). I half the recipe (saving 1/2 cans for the next week), making this 2 weeks in a row. I serve over instant white rice.

I fix it in the microwave though (or the crockpot). E-mail me (or leave a comment) if you'd like to know more complete instructions.
