I just made four dinners for the week, each one ringing in at $.99 exactly, and I’d like to proudly note that the recipe includes vegetables, protein (tofu), and carbohydrate (noodles). I did not count the spices I added because it’s a matter of a few cents and I had them on hand anyway. This can be done!! I should also note that the tofu was $1.99/lb, but that chicken was on sale this week for $1.50/lb, so if you’re a tofu hater you could use chicken too. I chose not to because I didn’t have the time to cook all of the chicken, but this would have left the recipe at under $.80 per serving.
