This week potatoes were CHEAP, so I will be planning my meals round my 10 pound bag of potatoes!
Last night I made a potato soup recipe that I found on SPARKRECIPES.COM Total meal was less than $3.00
(I believe I posted the recipe under the budgeting tips thread, so if interested you can find it there!)
Tonight I made CURRY.
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup sliced carrots
1 Package GOLDEN CURRY sauce mix
Cut potatoes into large cubes.
Slice baby carrots in half.
Cut chicken breast into 1 inch cubes, and sauté in a little olive oil. Season with garlic salt & pepper.
Add the carrots and potatoes.
Cover potatoes with water, and boil until potatoes and carrots are soft.
Break curry into sections. Add CURRY cubes one cube at a time, making sure to stir constantly so curry dissolves. Keep adding CURRY until desired thickness. Make sure you stir constantly so curry dissolves and is mixed evenly.
*If your curry seems to thick, gradually add more water until you reach the desired consistency. Mixture should be a little thick, not soupy.
Serve over rice.
Husband and son LOVED it!
Cost of main ingredients: $9.08
Chicken-$1.50 ($9.00 for package of 6)
