Pan-Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Sherry Sauce. Glazed Carrots. Roasted Broccoli. Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

... "It's Monday night and I was on my way home driving back from Milwaukee from work where I thought ... 'I want Boston Market for dinner and I really don't want to cook.' While in thought, I totally missed the turn and I didn't want to turn around and I drove to the supermarket instead to get the ingredients to make a 'Boston-Market-quality' meal for a fraction of the cost. Luckily, I read through the grocery store and supermarket circulars religiously and all the ingredients for this meal for four costs less than $15.00 USD.

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Garlic and Sherry Sauce: BI Chicken Thighs and Legs. S & P. Vegetable Oil. Garlic. AP Flour. LS Chicken Broth. Dry Sherry. Thyme. US Butter. Lemon Juice.

Glazed Carrots: Carrot. LS Chicken Broth. Sugar. US Butter. Lemon Juice. S & P.

Roasted Broccoli: EVOO. Sugar. S & P. Lemon Juice.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Garlic. EVOO. Russet Potato. Water. Whole Milk. Thyme. Rosemary. Oregano. S & P.

Using the same ingredients throughout a whole menu plan saves money. Having a well-stocked pantry with staple pantry items also is a time-saver. In the end, if I went to Boston Market and spent roughly $15.00 - I would have ordered the food, then it would have gotten cold by the time I got home. By going to the supermarket and getting the ingredients and making it - I made the same meal for four people. The benefits of cooking/eating at home." /enjoying this meal while it is still hot ...
