Another delicious Frugal Fridays meal (create a meal for 4 under $10). But this one is a little bit different from what we normally do...
We went out for a picnic at the park this afternoon. Even though we really didn't start planning this picnic until about 12:15 this afternoon, we were determined that we would have lunch at the park. Problem was, we didn't really have any picnic-appropriate foods readily available. So here's what we did:
Go to Albertson's. Select at the deli:
1 4-piece chicken meal (2 thigh, 2 drumstick) - $2.99
1/2 pound macaroni salad on sale for 20% off - $1.10
1 pkg. 4 King's Hawaiian Rolls - $1.10
As you approach check-out lane, make impulse dessert purchase:
1 Oreo Go-Pak on sale - $1
Drive to park, spread out your homemade denim quilt, and chow down!
Total price (including 6% sales tax): $6.56
This was one of the most spendy meals we've done in a long time. As we tossed the Oreos in the cart I felt like such a spend-thrift! But every once in a while, it's good to splurge just a little bit, and have a good time with your family. Tomorrow it's back to eating frugal, home cooked, delicious meals. :-)
