Using What You’ve Got, and What’s on Sale: Foodies’ Night In 06.11.12
For many of us it’s a real challenge — making the most of every last ingredient spinning on that lazy Susan. Taking full advantage of the foods that are actually on on sale can be a struggle too. The question becomes “Do I buy things with which I am unfamiliar, not knowing how to turn them into a meal JUST BECAUSE they are on sale?” Depending on the way you answer, you could end up with a ten-gallon drum of mustard living on said lazy Susan for months to come…
Serious foodies are undaunted by this quandary. Serious foodies take on the weekly circular — and that bucket of mustard — like a call to action, leaving nothing but deliciousness in their dust. Thank goodness, serious foodies also gather every Monday afternoon too…
Join us Monday for an #FNIchat jam-packed with all sorts of meal solutions, and good news for your kitchen. Just in time for the release of the brand spankin’ new Kroger MyMagazine extras iPad app (in which Serious Foodie #1, Caitlin herself is featured), we’ll go deep on the most creative ways to take on the quandary of the day. AND we’ll cover clever ideas for everyday ingredients and pantry staples. Prepare to shake it up (not the mustard).
NEW! We’d love to start sharing all recipes exchanged during Foodies’ Night In via Pinterest by inviting you to pin on the #FNIchat boards. Please shoot us a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to give us your email address or Pinterest name, or leave in a comment below.

How Foodies’ Night In Works:
Late Monday afternoons (4-6pm eastern to be exact) we meet through Twitter. Using the hashtag #FNIchat we greet each other at the virtual door, and get cozy to talk about whatever food-related topic we are featuring that day. Typically the topic will be determined by the weekly sponsor of #FNIchat. We, at Cooking with Caitlin, compile at least ten questions that serve as the framework of the conversation over the two hours of #FNIchat. Then, the hosts throw out each question at pre-determined times throughout #FNIchat. We hope that YOU will join in the fun-filled foodie conversation and share your thoughts, recipes, tips, ask questions…and most certainly make new friends! Can’t wait to *see* you there.
