Pineapple and pepper chicken

I'll have to take a photo of this when I take it out of the freezer.

Essentially, chicken in a light gravy with pineapple and sauteed green peppers, served over rice. I made enough for 3 meals: 1 tonight and 2 for the freezer.

Cheap? You betcha. Everything on sale and the chicken from a giant 10 lb package from Costco.

Tasty? It's okay, but it's nothing to jump up and down over. Once we've eaten the other portions, I don't think I'll make this one again.

Still looking for tasty and cheap ideas for filling the freezer!

Last day of splurging

Starting tomorrow, I am back to eating much healthier meals and trying to get at least a little exercise in at some point during each day. It might be only a 15 minute walk at mid-day, but that's better than nothing!

Breakfast this morning was pretty much unhealthy as sin:

Leftover mashed potatoes mixed with a little egg and sour cream, topped with shredded cheese and baked for 25 minutes.
Brown and Serve Sausage (hey, it's cheap!)
Grapes (probably the only healthy thing on the plate)

I guess it could have been worse, but it sure could have been better!
