Combo Night

My Cheap Deli Chicken Adventure

Buying baked chicken in the deli department seems being lazy and cheap at times. Anticipating the hot plastic bag that it comes in, can be dreadful. In my head, I’m wondering how long have this chicken been sitting in that glass display. I tell myself, its fresh; It doesn’t look so fat and bulgy. In the meat department, I saw a whole defrosted chicken that looked like Barry Bonds on steroids.

Baked Ginger and Cinnamon Sweet Potato’s.

Never the less, I decided to balance it out with some fresh, baked sweet potato’s. There one of the cheapest and healthiest super foods at the store. I enjoy the sweet natural taste, of the sticky honey texture. I bake them in the oven for 30 minutes on 350 degrees. To add more sweetest, I like to add some ginger and cinnamon powder, with a touch of salt. I cut them up, like little tater tots to speed up the cooking. After 10 minutes, I add the chicken to heat it up and  balance it out with the potato’s.

I have to say; after eating this meal, I actually enjoyed my lunch adventure for the price. In total, it came out to be a $2.75 meal. You cant beat that, when your on a budget. It was a healthy meal, that is if your not a vegan or vegetarian.

Mexican Burrito

Burrito Mexican Fast Food

Tonight was a combo night for me. What do I mean when I say combo night? Its when you combine foods from different food sources. I bought a pre-packaged shoulder butt, that was already seasoned to make Mexican Burritos. It was on sale for $5.43, saving me about $11.68. I also went and got some Spanish rice and hot sauce from a famous Mexican fast food place. It was cheap, and I’m not really good at cooking Spanish rice.

The burrito turned out really well, after cooking the meat for about 2 1/2 hours. The whole house was smelling good. I cant say it looked really good, with my paper plate presentation. It got the job done, Plus there will be a bunch of left overs. I will defiantly be using the rest of my tortious, for my Mexican breakfast burrito recipe in the near future. The good news is, I only have to wash the bowl after this tasty meal
