A whole roasted chicken (usually not more than $3.00) and vegies, mashed potatoes. What is left of the chicken can be chicken salad sandwiches with added chopped onion, celery, apple and walnuts.

...or in keeping with the "broke" theme - a good chicken salad to me just has a little celery, hardboiled egg, and a bit of onion - not even much mayo - ground in processor (before adding all the other ingredients).

Your so bad Wasabi

$5.00 isn't that much when considering feeding a family of 4 but I think we've proven with a little planning and having some staples in your pantry it is possible to fix some really good things.

Paint ......... what the heck is a larder?

I just thought of another one! Hamburger steaks, mashed taters, & what ever veggie I have in the cabinet at the time(i keep a wide variety). All I may need to buy is potatoes & a 5lb bag of Idaho's are only about $2 at the grocery store. I could also pick up some button mushrooms, an onion, & maybe a bell pepper & sautee those in some butter to go on top of the hb steaks.

Crewsk.......is hamburger steak .........cube steak? If so, I love this dredged in flour w/ paprika, s & p and fried till golden brown and then finished off in the oven to finish cooking. I love covering it with a peppery white gravy along with mashed potatoes and green beans. Think I'll be making this one the coming week..........thanks for the reminder and I'll I'm out is the cost of the meat :D . Maybe I'll just sit here and think this whole $5.00 thing a little more. Heck maybe I'll save enough and have some extra for a manicure

Sizzlin' - we could almost do a "challenge" so to speak - a whole week of $5.00 dinners - see how everyone does - Let me eat my steak first :oops:

Start out on a Sunday - end on Friday with a manicure? 8)

Sizz, around here cubed steak like that is considered country fried steak. Hamburger steak is a made with ground beef, seasoned with your favorite stuff(s&p, paprika, etc.)& made into large patties & then just cooked in the oven or in a pan.
