Annie had a friend staying a few days and she doesn’t dig vegetables. Since it was just the 3 of us tonight, I kept it simple.
A couple of weeks ago, I picked up some Annie’s organic mac and cheese on sale 2 for $3. Added butter and milk for a total of $3.75 This served 3 bowls for dinner and 2 more for lunch the next day. .75 cents per serving!
Annie and I also had a salad of spinach, beets, blood oranges, navel oranges (all organic) and 2 chopped up leftover chicken breast (bought on sale last week, 6 breasts for $5, so I stocked up!) and a balsamic vinegar dressing. I have been making this for my to-go lunches often this winter. I like to add grapefruit and red onions, but didn’t have any tonight. It’s a meal in itself!
Organic spinach $2.00
2 chicken breasts $1.75
2 cups organic beets (I cooked and marinated them) $2.00
2 organic blood oranges (def, the splurge at $2.99 lb) $2.00
1 organic navel orange $ 25 cents
for a total of $7.50 for the salads. That’s $3.75 each!
Dinner for 3 and 2 lunches= $11.25
