We made it...week 1 was pretty good here!
cereal, fruit, toast
hummus, pita, tabouli
chicken noodle soup
I set a whole chicken in the crockpot this morning. When it was cooked fully, I pulled it out so I could pull all the meat off the bones. I froze half the meat for later use. The rest, I put back in the crockpot with green beans, carrots, and corn. Added a little salt, pepper, chives. When I was ready to serve dinner, I cooked some Ronzoni Healthy Harvest egg noodles. Pasta does not do well in the slow-cooker, in my experience, so I served it by the bowl: a bowl full of noodles topped with the tastiest chicken and veggies ever...it was very good!
Summary of spending for Week 1:
Spent: $5.29 oop, saved $93.21 with coupons, sales, a rebate, & gift cards. I did alot of 'cooking from the stockpile'.
