Ever been a stick in the mud? Do you live in the sticks? I’m sure there’s many other sayings about “sticks” (and yes, you are welcome to share them with me). This week we’re “stacking” up savings with our Sesame Sticks. Buy one bag, get one 50% off. Choose from Honey Roasted, Narrow (Regular), Cheddar, Everything (garlic-y), Honey Mustard & Onion, and Black Bean (gluten-free). I love when my mom serves them on salads. I usually help myself to a handful or two before they go on the salad. So these things are great right from the bag or in salads, but they are also good in snack mixes too. Make your own or try ours.Weekly Meat & Cheese Specials – save $1+

Balsamic Beets and Beet Greens – Maybe a little different, but it’s one of my absolute summer favorites! It’s good with either yellow or red beets.
¼ c. toasted walnuts
2 bunches of beets with greens (about 6 medium beets)
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. balsamic vinegar
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
sea salt to taste
1 Valida or red onion, sliced into thin half-moons
Separate beets from greens. Wash beets and steam for approximately 30 minutes (for small beets) to 40 minutes (large beets). Peel beets by running them under cold water while slipping off skins. Cut into quarters and toss with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, 1 T. olive oil and salt. Set aside.
Wash greens, trim off stems and slice into strips about 1/2 inch wide. In a large skillet, heat 1 T. olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add sliced greens and cook, covered for about 5-7 minutes, until wilted. Just before serving, add beets to the beet greens and heat through (1-2 minutes). Place greens and beets on a platter or in a bowl and garnish with walnuts.
