Ok so last night I went to Publix for dinners for this week...
Soooo I tried to Buy 3 seven dollar meals....
Meal one ... We had this last night "fried" chicken , green beans, and sweet potatoe fries
Chicken ( I bought a package of 4 breasts and only used two) - 4.29 for the package so for this meal I used $2.15 of chicken. to make it "fried" I create a honey mixture dip it in that and dip it in crunched honey bunches of oats and bake it ...super delicious super low calorie
Sweet Potato- We one used one 99cents
Green Beans-I went with caned organic ... usually I opt for fresh but canned are less expensive and were pretty delicious... $1.23
Meal one- $4.37
Meal Two - TONIGHT!!! EGGPLANT PIZZA .... and yes eggplant is my very favorite food :) weird but true...
Eggplant.. I weighed three eggplants to find a one pounder :) I was so proud of myself this was a first-$1.83
Pesto- $1.69 ... its a package that you mix with olive oil ... delicious!!
Pinenuts- 2.89... this was a splurge but they are my favorite cooking item..I will only use half so I can count just half the price$1.45
cheese- already have this but I will count $1.00 worth of it
Meal Two-$8.66.....1.66 over ... bummer
Meal Three ... Spagetti Squash and Balsalmic Chicken
Meal Three $7.83...83 cents over....
Since Meal one was $2.63 under...and meals two and three were over... I combined it all and I was still under 14 cents...
WHOO WHOO!! SUCCESS
