What has Cheap Thrills planned for this week?
Lots of chicken in my freezer, I discovered. I’d been taking advantage of great deals on split breasts (.88/#) and while fryers (.79/#), and there’s the last of the FREE Smart Chicken from January. I didn’t realize just how much poultry was in there! So three evenings of chicken this week, all prepared differently. We were at the cabin Sunday night, so I had a prepped and frozen meal of Champagne Stuffing Chicken, a dish I made up with bl/sl breasts, stuffing mix, leftover champagne and shredded Swiss. And since we’re coming and going a great deal this week, there are Crock Pot meals on the menu, too. This is a great time of year for salad as a side. And the starches are mostly sides, too, so I can avoid or reduce them. Here’s what’s on our dinner menu:
Sunday C: Champagne Stuffing Chicken (~1.50 chicken, .74 stuffing, .25 soup, .50 cheese), green beans (.25)
Monday B: Healthy Harvest spaghetti (.68), meatballs and sauce (1.18), garlicky broccoli ($1)
Tuesday C: whole roasted chicken (3.15), roasted potatoes (.60), carrots (.50), salads (.50)
Wednesday P: Crock Pot pork butt bbq (.99/#, extra for the freezer), oven fries ($1), salads (.50)
Thursday T: Swedish turkey meatballs (meatballs 1.25, Cooking Creme .98) (trying new recipe), noodles (.50), salads (.50)
Friday C: Sweet Salsa Dump Chicken (nearly free jam, salsa .60, chicken .88/#, nearly free seasoning), rice (.10/serving), mixed veg (.88)
Saturday V: veg soup ($1), homemade cheese biscuits (~.50 for all) (BH&G cookbook)
