Sunday Coupon Preview March 4th

This Sunday there will be a SmartSource, Redplum and a P&G insert in the newspaper. Check out Sunday Coupon Preview for a list of what coupons that you can expect. Please note that these may vary by region.

*ALWAYS make sure to check your papers for inserts before you purchase!!

After speaking to a representative for The Times Picayune, I've learned that most of the insert coupons are now going to people who have home delivery on their Sunday Papers. This may be why many of you aren't finding coupons in the papers available for sale in our area.

The most asked questions that I get are about local newspaper inserts so here are a few answers:

First of all, I would like to note that in my weekly Sunday Coupon Preview, I list the inserts that are available nationally. While I realize that both The Advocate and The Times-Picayune will/may not have all of the available inserts in them, I want to give you information about what's out there.

With that said, here are …

What's For Dinner? "Zesty Pork Tenderloin and Italian Red Skins"

Today's recipe was submitted by Renae. I love that there are only 6 ingredients. 

Zesty Pork Tenderloin and Italian Red Skins


1 Pork Tenderloin
1 cup Italian Dressing
1/2 cup Tomato Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Red Pepper Powder
1/2 teaspoon Dry Mustard
1 tablespoon Chili Powder


Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Pour into a ziploc bag, add pork and marinate overnight.
Pour into slow cooker in the morning and let cook all day. I do low for more than 7 hours or on high if it will be served within 5-6 hours.

Suggested side:

Good Seasons Red Skins

Quarter enough red skin potatoes to fill a 13x9 casserole dish. Prepare one package of Good Seasons Italian dressing and pour over top of potatoes. Bake at 350 until potatoes are tender.
