One of my favorite cooking vessels is my deep dish covered baker from Pampered Chef. The consultant at the party called it a “Magic P0t.” I love it. Love it. Love. It.
Last night for dinner, Olivia and I had chicken. I used to buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and still do from time to time, but I have found we all enjoy the bone in, skin on better. I threw the chicken in mymagic p0t with some Goya Adobo seasoning with cumin generously covering both sides for about 30 minutes in the microwave. It was a simple dinner, so I paired it with some macaroni and cheese and corn with butter sauce. I know, double starches, but it was good. And simple.
Corn with butter sauce $0.60
Dinner totaled $3.91 and we had leftovers of everything except the corn since that’s Olivia’s favorite.
Tonight was dinner repurposed. Olivia said she wanted something new. When I asked her what, she wanted the ramen noodles in the yellow package. *sigh* She got them. Me, on the other hand, I had left overs. I’m not counting the chicken or macaroni and cheese amounts since I counted them in last night’s dinner.

PLUS there’s still chicken left over. Since I wasn’t thinking all the way through, I tossed all the chicken with the buffalo sauce, so I’ll freeze it for another day.
