  • What all actually goes into the cost? EVERYTHING or just vegetables, proteins, etc and not the staple items that one would already have on hand like flour, spices, etc.?

  • That's what boggled's 6.50 for everything, including spices ie salt, pepper, etc.

  • Spaghetti using a lb of meat, 1 jar of sauce and 1 lb of pasta. That's all I can think of. That's not even enough for garlic bread with my spaghetti. I couldn't even make my chicken casserole on $6.50. All I put in it is chicken breasts, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and ritz crackers (and butter, salt and pepper, veggies optional). Maybe a side salad?

  • I can't really think of anything I could make for $6.50 or less, including spices and all. MAYBE if I was able to get everything on sale, and didn't have to count the cost of things I already have on hand, I might be able to do spaghetti.
