    I didn't know I had to supply every single ingredient in the salad to satisfy you.

    But, in any case, making a meal for $10 would be a very generous amount of money to spend on groceries in a month, you would not need to shop sales, use coupons, or anything.

    Three meals/day x 30 day/month = 90 meals.
    Ninety meals/month x $10/meal = $900/month on groceries. And that's just for the kids. Not the parents. And, no toilet paper or soap for ANYONE !


    I'm guessing you don't do the shopping in your house, Disney?



    Here's a chart put out by the USDA on monthly food costs at thrifty, moderate, and liberal food plans: http://www.cnpp.usda.gov/Publication...fFoodOct09.pdf
    Just to be clear.....the figure I was using was for Dinner. It is substantially less for breakfast and lunch....you can often use leftovers from dinner.

    And...I do ALL the shopping in my house...and I don't spend $900/month....but I do spend about $600-$700

    Sure you are allowed to throw a few olives, peppers, and salad dressing on it, but you'd be wrong about it costing no more 25 cents. Also, peppers will add (almost) nothing in terms of calories; olives and salad dressing will only add fat. You don't have enough protein for the three kids, with one chicken breast, and you don't have any carbs.


    Why don't you just give up the fact that you were wrong. One chicken breast and a bag of salad greens will NOT make a meal for three kids.

    So, you are spending $20 - $23 per day on groceries (presumably including more than just food). And, how many people is that for? I'm assuming you're willing to concede, then, that you can make a meal for three kids - a healthy meal - for less than $10?

    AS one who makes BBQ, you can do, pork shoulders that will feed a family of 4 for weeks for less than 50 cents a lp, Turkey is at 59 cents a lp right now....


    Perhaps if American Poor didn't use what little money they had on multiple flat screens and cell phones, they could eat better...


    Now there are some in dire straits, but the fact is, the majority of "poor" can eat just fine.

    You think a couple of peppers and a tablespoon of salad dressing costs more than 25 cents???

    According to the link I posted, it has:

    620 calories
    87 g protein
    20 g fat
    26 g carbs

    We routinely feed four adults on a bag of salad mix and a couple of chicken breasts, so don't tell me it can't be done.

    The link you posted was not the ingredients you said you use (either the first time, with the greens and chicken), or the second time (adding peppers, olives, and salad dressing).


    And, making the salad in the link you posted will not cost $3 for three kids (as you said the first time), nor will it cost $3.25 (as you said the second time). You want to prove you can feed three kids a healthy meal for under $10, then post the ACTUAL ingredients needed for the meal (enough for all three kids), and the cost of those ingredients. You accomplish nothing, in terms of proving your point, by lying.


    You can feed three kids a healthy meal for under $10. Neither you NOR disneydude are being correct/honest in your posts.

    Ahhh, you make BBQ. I knew there was something special about you. Since I grew up in the Mecca of BBQ (Memphis), I know a thing or two about the subject.

    Nice !!! I don't BBQ in contests myself, but my brother-in-law does. His team was 110 two years ago in the World Championship at Memphis in May, but they moved up to 17th place last year.
