And what was the point about talking about Saturday night's dinner? Well, it's a pretty simple idea really. I try to do this often. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I will take one group of ingredients and attempt to get anywhere from 2-4 meals out of them. In this case the recipe for the chicken pot pies was a new concept and I will be able to make three different things out of the filling. This will feed our family of five for at least three nights if not four. The best part? All ingredients included this whole recipe cost me less than $12 to make ... so that's about $3-$4 dollars a day!
* "Something Beef" day is always a day that I plan the night before, the only requirement is that the main course is some kind of beef. We eat a lot of poultry and fish so we need the red meat break on occasion.
