OK, I flopped last month, but this month I am going to do much better! Food shopping today was a little disheartening because I mainly shopped for household staples and it cost $73.00, but I am not deterred. I already have 7 supper meals planned out for the week (breakfast and lunches seem to take care of themselves ).
Here I go:
1. Herb Roasted Chicken Leg Quarters
2. Chicken & Rice Soup (made with the one leftover chicken leg quarter)
4. Roast chicken
5. Chicken & barley Soup (made with the leftover chicken carcass)
6. Spaghetti with Sausage sauce
And tonight’s supper:
Large salad with homemade cornbread (yum).
I broke down tonight’s supper (for 2 people) to see what it cost me and here is what I discovered:
Romaine Lettuce (1/2 a head) – .99
Celery (about 1/3 of a bunch)- .50
Tomatoes – .30 (I received a great deal on these two weeks ago, they were about .14 cents apiece)
4 Hard boiled eggs – .55
Walnuts (small handful) – .50
Salad dressing – 1.26 (this is high I know, but my husband and I either eat homemade or store bought good stuff, and I am two tired to whip up a batch of homemade)
The estimated total for two HUGE salads $3.95! Add to that the cornbread which costs under $2.00 to make, we have a meal for around $6.00. Plus there will be extra cornbread for my sons when they get home from work tonight or we can have it for breakfast tomorrow morning.
Whew! What a work out this gives a person!
Happy budgeting everyone!

Good going BellaRosa! See, that chinese food only served to inspire you. I am a country girl and as soon as I saw corn bread for breakfast my heart did a little pitty patter. Ummm, love corn bread and milk. Good use of that carcass. I always cook mine also. Looks like your in to it now.
