Cheap Eats: Dinner is served
January 24, 2023 7:33pm CST
As I wrote in a previous discussion, I bought these chicken legs at a good price. I added some vegetables, and barbecue sauce. Rather than cooked potato or rice, I had some boxes of shell macaroni with goat cheese cheddar, and decided to cook the pasta in the barbecue sauce, and then mixed in the cheese sauce. It reminds me of some of the Church potluck meals from the 60s and 70s. It's a bit of a comfort food, and it didn't cost very much to make. I was able to use up just a little bit more in my refrigerator and my pantry. I do have leftovers that I can divvy up into portions. Not my favorite meal, but it's edible. Best of all, it cost me less than $1 per portion, including the salad greens. Photo is my own.

That was for sure a cheap meal. I cannot decide what to prepare for lunch. We have to go out soon after lunch for more tests at the hospital, I need something light, no sauces, no garlic, no onion. I think I will go with penne seasoned with butter and Parmesan.

@spiderdust imperfect was really horrible to me and I had some major issues. The same with a couple of them. And Martie has disappointed me, because they stopped using a certain shipping, and now they don't let us choose, but they have a shipping company they use often times, which are not allowed on the base and they are not willing to become vetted. So then, I get something and it's turned away, and they refuse to ship it out again using a different carrier. That happened to me when I had thanksgiving, and there were things I needed that were there, and then got turned away. They certainly refund my money, but when you want something, you don't want just your money refunded, you want the products.

@TheSojourner Wow, that's really frustrating. I remember all the issues you were having with Misfits and I hoped Imperfect would be a better experience. I'm sorry that it wasn't, and it sounds like it was a really awful experience.
