What's for Dinner?

Food Lion has some good sales this week, in the Richmond area, where you can make a yummy dinner for very little money.

Here's what to buy:

Holly Farms Whole Fryer - 0.47 lb
5 lb bag White Potatoes - 0.99 each
Bird's Eye Steamfresh Vegatables - $1.00 each

Don't be afraid to cook a whole chicken. They are so easy. Just put a little bit of your favorite seasoning on it and put it in the oven at 375 for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. Nothing to it, you just need time. And buying chicken this way saves money! Next cut up a few potatoes, drizzle with oil, season with your fav herbs and spices and throw on a baking tray. Pop it in the oven, with your chicken, for about 45 mins. Turn atleast once. The Steamfresh is the easiest just pop in the microwave for the amount of time it says.
So all together this meal cost $3.59. That's a 4.82 lb bird, 1/3 of the potatoes and 1 bag of veggies. Not bad for a family of 3. (We will have left overs for hubbies lunch :)
