Frugal doings

August 17th, 2019 at 07:31 pm

I bought a double pack of young whole chicken at Costco. I loved roasting these in the oven as they are so very tender (literally fall off the bone). A double pack is a little over $10 and I think I can make 4 or 5 dinners out of each roaster for a family of three. And if you wonder how I seasoned the chicken: I use Goya Adobo, fresh garlic and I put a whole onion in the chicken cavity and marinate for at least 12 hours.

Meal #1:

Husband ate a little bit of the dark meat with a drumstick and I ate chicken breast meat complimented with white rice, black beans (Spanish style) with homemade Pico de Gallo. Oh...so good

Meal #2: (possibly Monday)

I'll make chicken burritos with lettuce, black beans, homegrown diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, salsa and guacamole.

Meals #3: (Wednesday)

Gnocci chicken soup with homemade dinner rolls.

Meal #4: (Friday)

Spanish Arroz con Pollo (chicken rice), beans and tomato slices.

I may add that the roaster yield 30 cubes of chicken stock as well.

Not bad for a $6 roaster!

I also put together homemade clothes stain remover (1 cup of peroxide and half a cup of Dawn blue dish washer detergent mixed in a spray bottle).

    That's a good deal on that chicken and I bet your house smells divine when you are roasting it!
