There is a local meat market that sells stuff cheap! Check your area for one of these "hidden gems!" You'd be surprised how much you get for your money! If you live in or around Quincy, check out Roxie's on 3A!
4 pkgs. Purdue Buffalo Flavored Chicken Nuggets - .99 cents ea!
1 loaf of Scalli Bread - $1.99 (for our Irish Hanukkah dinner!)
1 Pork Roast - 2.24 lbs @ $1.99/lb = $4.46 (4 servings)
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Tenders - 3.85 lbs @ $1.69/lb = $6.45 (8 servings)
Ground Beef - 3.10 lbs @ $2.28/lb = $7.07 (6 servings)
Sirloin Steak - 1.01 lbs @ $5.79/lb = $5.85 (2 servings)
Boneless Pork Ribs - 3.52 lbs @ $1.88/lbs = $6.62 (4 servings)
Sandwich Steak - .47 lbs @ $4.63/lbs = $2.18 (1 servings)
Overall, this should provide at least 12.5 dinners for myself, the husband and possibly kids. The nuggets will provide at least 12 lunches for the both of them. The Scalli Bread just tastes good!
If you minus the Scalli Bread and Chicken Nuggets and figuring 25 dinners, the meat portion of the meals cost $1.27 per person (plus, a 2 and 1 year old will eat from that portion). It would have been much less if I didn't splurge on that steak for the husband!
