On the menu tonight: Chicken Parmesan with warm dinner rolls (not shown above) for just $.95 per person.
This is one of my husband's favorite meals and he cleaned his plate, again, tonight. This meal was super easy and super cheap. And at just $.75 per person, it was much more economical than going out to eat at an Italian restaurant.
Dinner started with a jar of Classico spaghetti sauce (I chose Classic Marinara for tonight's sauce), a can of Hunt's Diced Tomatoes, one box of Mueller's Thin Spaghetti, a splash of French's Worcestershire Sauce, a shake of McCormick Cayenne Pepper and three italian-seasoned chicken breasts from Purdue Chicken. Everything in the picture was free, except the chicken, which I purchased on a manager's markdown special for $3.47 (after $2.00 coupon) for a pack of 5 individually wrapped and marinated boneless chicken breasts.
|I wonder what's under the kitchen towel?|
|12 delicious dinner rolls|
Dinner total so far: $.75 per person
|Rolls fresh out of the oven---dinner is ready! |
Dinner total per person (including free brownies for dessert) $.75
And there you have it: Cheaper than fast food, faster than cheap food. That's my home economics.
