Frugal Yummy Food Day!

This past Saturday, Todd and I had a great, FRUGAL, yummy food day!

In the morning, I made grits (for Todd,) eggs, toast, ham, potatoes and homemade cinnamon rolls.  It all turned out really good, if I may say so myself.

Then, for Dinner, Todd made a homemade pepperoni pizza and some BBQ chicken drumsticks that we had in the freezer.  It was AWESOME!

Other than eating all day, we watched a couple of movies that we got from the library, played games on the Wii, I finished a book, and we just had a nice, relaxing day.

I love to compare meal prices versus going out to eat.
Todd LOVES the "Old Timer's Breakfast" at the Cracker Barrel.  It is a little over $7, I think for pretty much everything we had for breakfast (minus the cinnamon rolls.)  It cost us a fraction for two breakfasts together here at home.

Then for dinner, it would have cost us about $15-20 to have a  deep dish pizza (with extra cheese) and a dozen drummies.  The drummies were $0.99/lb, and we had 2 1/2 lbs worth.  So $2.50 for the drummies, and I would say no more than $1.50-$2.00 for all of the ingredients for the pizza.  So, a $5 meal...that feeds the both of us more than one day.

Not to mention, it was just as good (if not better!) than a restaurant!
