It’s time for spring cleaning!

With warmer weather it’s time to open the windows, let in the fresh air and start your spring cleaning. This time of year our homes need more than vacuuming, sweeping and dusting. Now is a great time to organize closets, dust the blinds and clean the garage.

Here are a few ideas to add to your spring cleaning list:

-Clean light fixtures and replace bulbs

-Wash walls, baseboards, and door knobs

-Empty the coat closet

-Clean stove top and oven

-Wash windows and screens

-Touch up the ceiling fans

Make a realistic check list so you can mark off those assignments as they are finished. Choose one room at a time to arrange, deep clean and organize.

Before you start your spring cleaning projects make sure you have all of the supplies:

-Wood Polish

-Glass Cleaner

-Paper Towels

-Dusting Spray

-Boxes/Trash Bags

-Cloths, Micro fiber or dish towels

All of these items can be found at any of our locations and remember to check the weekly ad for additional savings. Get ready to start tackling those cleaning projects you have been putting off during the cold winter days.

5 Tips for Food Storage

It’s our favorite time of year, case lot sale! And you know what that means, it’s time to stock up in the pantry and beef up your food storage until March 11 or while supplies last. Now is the perfect time to find the best deals on the key items you use each day, as well as the items you hope you’ll never have to use if there’s an emergency.

Here’s five tips to help you with your food storage:

  1. It’s recommended that you have the food staples—like flour, sugar, eggs, oats and dried milk for cooking and baking. Be sure to get these in dried or canned for long-term storage. We have a great variety of Augason farm and Western family canned products that are perfect!
  2. Be practical and buy foods you already eat. Don’t forget your canned fruits and veggies.
  3. Rotate items from your food storage, checking expiration dates. It is recommended that you use items from food storage to keep items from going to waste. Check and rotate each month to be sure you’re not letting good food go bad.
  4. Become familiar with the food storage items you buy and have recipes that use those ingredients. (This will also help with food storage rotation.)
  5. If possible, keep your storage in a place like a basement that has minimal light, moisture and heat. Its recommended that food storage is kept at 70 degrees.
We hope these tips help keep your food storage stocked and ready to go! Happy Shopping!

Where it all began

In 1947, Walt Macey and Dale A. Jones started the “Save-A-Nickel-Market” in Rose Park, Utah. Walt and Dale grew the business into a four-store operation and the stores were known for their personalized service and friendliness.

In 1963, the partners split and Walt kept one store in Rose Park, which he later renamed Macey’s. Walt went on to acquire some rival stores in Salt Lake Valley, and converted them into Macey’s. In 1973, he built his first 20,000-square-foot store called Macey’s Farmers Markets in Logan, and later, a 27,000-square-foot store in North Ogden. In 1976, he built a store at Carillon Square in Orem and later moved it to its current location at 800 North State Street.

Walt retired in 1985, and turned over management of the stores to his oldest son Ken, who with his wife, Robin, acquired his parents’ share of the business in 1987. Ken and Robin continued to grow the business by offering personalized service and genuine old-fashioned friendliness.

Ken sold the business to Associated Foods Stores in 1999. Since then Macey’s has continued to be a destination for thousands of Utah families looking for a great deal on groceries. Over the years additional Macey’s stores have been built or purchased. In 2002, the Macey’s in Pleasant Grove was built, 2007, the current store in Providence was built to replace the old store in Logan, in 2011, the Clinton and Lehi locations were purchased and in 2014, the Logan location was purchased. With all this growth, Macey’s now serves the communities of Logan, Providence, Ogden, Clinton, Tooele, West Jordan, Sandy, Lehi, Pleasant Grove, Orem, Provo and Spanish Fork.

Watch the big game and play!

Let’s face it. Many of us watch the big game for the company, the great commercials and the halftime show. The abundance of food certainly doesn’t hurt either. Why not combine the two in a fun eating game? (Make sure you wear your stretch pants.)

Any time one of these things shows up in a commercial or you react in a specific way, eat up.

  • You roll your eyes = 3 carrot sticks
  • You snort from laughter = 2 cookies
  • Someone cries = 1 glass of water
  • You clap your hands in amusement = chicken wing in dip
  • Someone uses a “dad” joke = chug your favorite drink (Click on savings and select your store to see the deals on Pepsi products this week.)
  • A company uses a popular song = Two chips with salsa
  • The word “football” = Chip and guacamole (Fresh guacamole is ready to go in our produce department.)
  • A puppy or kitten = handful of your favorite chips
  • Car commercial = Spoonful of seven-layer bean dip
  • Truck commercial=2 cookies

Healthy Salad Dressing Ideas

With its rainbow of fresh produce, a salad can be a delicious and striking part of your meal…not to mention loaded with nutrients! Now, if dousing your salad with a calorie-laden dressing is the only way to get your picky eaters to enjoy it, I’ll call that a win. A better option (double win?) would be to use a lighter, healthier dressing. Here are four healthy and delicious salad dressings you can make in less than five minutes:

  1. Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt-This savory dressing pairs wonderfully with all salads and is great for dipping as well. Try yours with spring mix, julienne carrots, bean sprouts and cucumber!
  2. Balsamic Vinaigrette – Offering a distinctive Mediterranean flavor, this dressing pairs wonderfully with baby spinach, pomegranate seeds and pine nuts.
  3. Greek Yogurt Caesar Salad Dressing– The Greek yogurt provides the creamy texture you’ve come to expect in a Caesar salad with less fat and more protein. I guarantee you won’t miss your old Caesar one bit!
  4. Raspberry Vinaigrette – The raspberry vinegar lends a deep, complex flavor with fruit undertones to this salad dressing. Pairs well with spinach, berries and nuts.

Enjoy making these healthy salad dressings and get that double win at your next meal!

Big Game Prep is Easy with Augason Farms

In a month that usually has lull of post-holiday festivities and cold weather, thank goodness for the NFL big game! It doesn’t matter if your team is playing for the championship or not, everyone loves the final game of the season, the clever commercials and—most importantly—the food! With Augason Farms, all of the food prep will be easy and delicious, so you can spend more time enjoying your favorite part of the day.

Yummy Meals to Feed The Crowd

The only thing that may be more exciting than the big game is all of the game day food that goes with it! The entrees and soups from Augason Farms will make a delicious spread that everyone will love. Plus, when you buy two soup or entrée items from Augason Farms, you’ll save $1 on shredded cheese! We all know that cheese is a key ingredient to any big game meal. Here are a few ways you can incorporate our soup and entrée products into your party:

Have a Soup-er Bowl Bar

Our yummy dry soup mixes will make everyone think you spent hours in the kitchen cooking, when all you had to do was add water and simmer for a few minutes. Your guests won’t know what to choose! Our Chicken Noodle Soup is a lighter option of noodles, vegetables and spices. All you need to do is set out yummy bread bowls and cheese for topping.

Our popular Cheesy Broccoli Soup is also a versatile classic! It is an amazing topping as a cheese sauce—just add less water and let it stand until thickened. Once ready, drizzle it over baked potatoes, add onion, spinach and cream cheese to top on toasted bread or add on chicken wings. Everyone loves some cheesy goodness.

Super Sloppy Joes

The Southwest Chili Mix has a classic sweet and spicy flavor and is the perfect base for delicious Sloppy Joes. Add water to the chili mix and stir to combine. Throw in some cooked ground beef or turkey and then simmer it all together. Pile the delicious mixture high on a hamburger bun and enjoy. The messier, the better!

Don’t Forget the Snacks!

If you’re more of a snacks-throughout-the-game type of person, our entrees and soups are perfect for a lot of big game favorites.

Sweet and Spicy Potato Skins

If you’re looking for a twist on a classic comfort food, Augason Farm’s Potato Gems Complete Mashed Potatoes are a great starting point for loaded mashed potatoes. After you’ve cooked the mashed potatoes, fold in bacon bits, our Southwest Chili and some green onions. You have a hearty and delicious meal that will give you plenty of energy to cheer your team to victory

Loaded Nachos

Nachos are synonymous with football food! After you’ve melted all your cheese on those chips, sprinkle tomatoes, green onions, and our Bacon Flavored Bits of top for a more filling and satisfying dish. Or, add our Southwest Chili Mix to your queso and drizzle it over our favorite chips. Ooey gooey nachos have never tasted so good.

Prepping for your big game party doesn’t mean you have to play benchwarmer in the kitchen while everyone else is enjoying the game. Augason Farm products can help you save time while creating delicious dishes that will leave you with the MVP award when the game is over.

Five Tips For Your Happiest Year Yet

Picture of a young happy beautiful family going for picnic in forest .

 

It’s a new year and you’re ready to make some improvements. Here is our top five items to consider as you make plans for the all new you.

  1. Eat healthy: A healthy eating plan can cost far less than fast food. (For example, swap out French fries or potato chips for baked potatoes and save big.) Spend plenty of time in our produce department and watch for wholesome natural and organic items throughout the store. Deals and fresh, nutritious food can be had every week and eating healthy may save you thousands in medical bills in the long run.
  1. Explore new flavors: It’s easy to get in a rut as the year goes by. Soon, you’re eating the same meals every week which can be boring and repetitive. (Your taste buds need variety too.) Our monthly publication, Stir Crazy has great ideas to keep your menu a menagerie of mouthwatering flavors. Plus, many of the recipes are directly from our dietitian so you know they will be both nutritious and delicious. Click here to see this month’s issue.
  1. Make a budget and stick to it: Do the math. Spend a few minutes and review your regular expenses. Then, dig in and separate your needs from your wants. (This means you must be honest with yourself and really decide what necessities you really need.) Once you have your needs identified, decide how much you can save each month. Then you can budget the fun stuff. Vacations, dining out, recreational toys, etc. may all be part of your annual plan, but should come in the right priority.
  1. Exercise regularly: On average, Americans spend about $8,000 annually on health care. Experts say more than half the costs are the result of lifestyle choices. Exercising three times a week for 20 minutes a day can decrease prescription costs by as much as 70 percent and medical costs by up to 30 percent.
  1. Be happy and thankful: Having a positive mental attitude can make all the difference. Not one of us ever has a year without challenges. However, if we take the right approach, we will realize our lives are almost always more than half full.
