Making a Budget Work

Apr 11, 2013

Throughout this week we have all discovered that although it is not easy you can still cook a great meal even when you are forced to do it on a tight budget.   Here is one of the best examples that show you can still have a tasty dinner for the whole family for less than a $1.00 per serving.

Chicken thighs for $.99/lb., removed the skin, and browned them in a pan with sliced onions.  Added a $0.44 packet of brown gravy mix with the required amount of water and let it reduce down until the chicken was fully cooked.  To complete the meal we added skin on mashed potatoes and some bagged salad with a few added veggie slices.  The total cost was $4.08 and it fed 5 people.  Yum!
