    Tonight, fulfilling an earlier promise of 'a real restaurant' to my 3 yr old, we went to an incredibly crappy overpriced chinese joint (but it had sparkly chandeliers and fancy folded napkins and oddly dressed waiters, so he was well entertained). So that doesnt count [​IMG]

    But last night we had fried egg sandwiches on homemade bread, and salad from homegrown lettuce with homemade vinaigrette, and (storeboughten) frozen peas. I would guess the total cost per serving to be somewhere around 50 cents. Mostly for the peas and the chickenfeed [​IMG]

    Pretty darn cheap. I took a burrito size tortilla, put some leftover chili I had in the frig with some already cooked carrots (yes I love them almost as much as Chickie) and a little lettuce to make a yummy burrito! Easy too!!![​IMG]
