Little did I know we'd soon be putting it to the test!
This weekend I loaded gear and groceries and headed to Jessie's kitchen. We thought we'd whip up a couple or 15 meals...
I've never bought so many groceries in my life! We adapted a Once A Month Mom menu that called for over 40 pounds of meat alone.
I hit Sam's Club for $1.39 pork chops and priced the rest with Kroger's sale flyer. With a couple of lucky buys, we kept the meat cost to an average $2/lb (my target price).
On Saturday we worked for 6 hours solid.
I left exhausted, wondering if this frugal experiment would be worth our time and money.
Final bill: $125 per cook. Final product: 15 recipes, quadrupled and split between us.
