- if I'm allowed to use what's in my pantry -- hmmm...always have lots of veggies on hand, so,
dark meat chicken is cheap so ...
> chicken stew with dumplings or biscuts (or over rice or noodles)
> Chinese style stir fry with chicken and veggies with rice (same dessert)
with poached spiced pears and homemade cookies for dessert
or - since eggs are cheap a French theme...
> cheese/onion/spinach souffle and side vegetable or salad
> cheese/onion/spinach quiche and side vegetable or salad
plus I think I'd have $ left over for some pears or apples so...dessert would be a fruit tart
or - if we're going with no meat , as others have suggested
> any kind of robust soup homemade soup with lots of veggies, beans and good stuff in it plus homemade bread or rolls (any leftover chicken from menu #1 could go in the soup)
homemade cherry pie for dessert (I'd have to buy the canned filling)
Great idea - let's do it
