9 Days 11 Dollars: Dinner #1
Yesterday was Day 1 of 9 Days, 11 Dollars and I decided to start out with the most obvious dinner: Roast chicken.
I may regret this decision later, but I thought that starting out by roasting the chicken would give me several meals in one that I can use over the next nine days.
1/2 Young Chicken (we only ate the legs and wings)
1/2 bag of spinach
Artisan Bread (not on the original list since I can make more without spending my $$)
Total cost per dinner: $1.71
I saved the chicken breasts for a chicken pot pie I am planning later on in the week. I also saved the carcass with all the yummy chicken bits still stuck on it. This is going to get cooked down and into a delicious chicken stock for chicken tortilla soup one night.
So far so good....feeling pretty confident (cocky??) I'm going to make it.
