Here is the prep for Friday night's dinner. We had lemon herb chicken, country potatoes, fresh green beans, fresh cherry tomatoes, and buttered zucchini, fresh plums, and a peach.(in the photo I have corn bread mix, but I forgot to start the bread in time)[the green beans, cherry tomatoes,and zucchini were from my garden, the plums were a gift from a friend.]
Cost for all this is $9.07. The reason I tabulated the total was to give a window to how we budget. This is rather high for a meal, but Fridays are "fun day's"! If every dinner cost this much we would spend $281.17 for a family of six!(lunches and breakfast not included.) Our average for a meal is less and soon I will give a complete total.
The completed dinner! Yummy
We love to eat green beans raw like carrots, so if you haven't tried this do so!!
Here is the prep for the desert. We had brownies. I have all of this on hand so no expense.
