Ideally I would love to shave $100 off of it a month.
For the most part we are now feeding only 3 people on a regularly.
Occasionally there are 4 of us but not to often.
I am hoping to start posting about some of the cheaper meals we have been eating. We will see :)
Over July 4th I made a pasta salad which had about 10 serving to it. We ate 5 serving on July 4. I mentioned in my last post about finding pasta on sale at Kroger for 50 cents a box if you buy 6. I bought 12 and might go back for more :)
Anyway, last night we ate the leftover pasta salad which we had approximately 5 servings of. We added 1 pound of grilled chicken breast to it.
Here it is:
Here is the cost break down of the original pasta salad
Pasta : 75 cents ( I used a box in half)
Carrot : .07 cents ( I used 1 which I shredded)
Green Pepper: 56 cents ( I used 1 diced)
Black Olives: 50 cents ( I used half a can which come whole and I sliced)
Caesar Dressing 85 cents ( I used half a bottle) = $2.73 or about 27 cents per serving.
5 servings of leftover pasta salad - $1.35 + chicken breast I bought for $1.35/ a LB = $2.70 for dinner :)
*Note: For the pasta salad I used things I had on hand and other then the pasta which I bought at Kroger every thing else was purchased at Aldi
Chicken Breast - I posted about this deal here and I got it at GFS.
