Cheap yummy meals for a family of 4!

It's been way too long since my last blog post! I recently fed my family of 4 six meals for about $20! Here's what I did:

Day 1: a whole chicken with a bottle of Italian dressing poured all over it. Put it in the crockpot on high and let it cook all day. Debone the chicken, put the remaining chicken in the fridge.

Day 2: White beans (navy beans) and rice with 1/2 link smoked sausage. Place 1lb dry beans, sausage, salt, pepper, 6-8 cups water, and dried parsley in crock pot. Cook on high all day. Refrigerate leftovers.

Day 3: Red beans and rice with 1/2 link smoked sausage. Cook using same method as white beans.

Day 4: Combine all leftovers with rice in an oven safe casserole dish. Cover with shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted. Separate leftovers into two ziplock bags and freeze. You will have another 2 days worth of leftover casserole.
