February 1, 2013 at 9:04 AM
Right now its looking like I have $70 for food till the 13th because some of our money didn't come in. I have angel hair, elbow noodles, canned veggies, chicken wings, flour, sugar, pancake mix, milk, instant potatoes, about 3-4 fresh potatoes. I think that's it. (Off the top of my head)

    Yikes!

    Rice.  Get a BIG bag.  You can have cooked rice w/butter & brown sugar for breakfast cereal, use rice with stir fry, and casseroles.  I've also added fruit and nuts and a bit of coconut milk or cream of coconut (just a spoonful so it'll last several times), stir and serve as an easy sweet side or dessert.  You can make fried rice with veggies as a side dish.  Very versatile, rice is.

    Chicken breasts seem expensive, but a whole breast can be cut into 1/2 lengthwise to double the servings, or slice/cube it for casseroles or stir fry.

    Chicken & Rice Casserole

    • 8 pieces chicken drums or thighs or combination
    • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
    • 1 to 1 1/2 soup cans water
    • 1 Tbsp. dry onion flakes
    • 2 tsp. beef boullion
    • 1 cup long grain rice

    Wash chicken pieces (I prefer to remove the skin too). In 9 x 13 pan or baking dish, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add chicken pieces. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
