know in the summer when it is extra hot, nobody feels like cooking, which can make dinner time a pain in the butt. I had one of those nights tonight. But I fell back on one of my favorite grocery store options – roast chicken. I love getting a roast chicken for meals because it is pre-cooked, and you can do so many things with it. Even better, most stores discount their chickens at the end of the night, so you can get one for a great price, like I did here! I paid $4.99 for something that will last me at least four dinners!
I went with easy, on-sale options for this meal. This is enough food to feed four people!
Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes, $2.50
Green Giant Peas, $1.00
Fresh Bread, $1.29
Total cost for this meal? $9.78, or $2.44 a person. You can’t get a meal for that price ANYWHERE! And all you need is five minutes and the microwave! Easy, delicious, and extra easy on the budget!
