In the year 2011, what can you buy for $6.68 ? The short answer is : not very much. The longer answer could be:
1. not quite two days of Comcast service
2. 3/4 of a gallon of Perrydell ice cream
3. 5 rentals at RedBox
4. six things bought at the Dollar store (which will all break in 60 seconds) - can you tell I hate the Dollar store?
5. an oven roaster bought on sale at Giant (99 cents per pound)
With this chicken, I made
dinner last night, Chicken Pie
lunch for tomorrow, a quart of chicken salad, made in the food processor (1 stalk celery, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 onion, 3 sweet gherkins, 2 cups shredded chicken).
I shredded the remaining meat for chicken and black bean enchiladas for next week and then used the bones to make 3 pints of chicken stock (also adding leftover carrot ends, onion skins, and celery tops).
$6.68 may not sound like much, but it can yield more than you think.....
