We all always keep our eyes open for bargain foods, right?

This week, Price Chopper (a local grocery chain) had its periodic bargain for fried chicken: 8 pieces for $4.99 vs the usual $8.99. We bought it hot and brought it home and reheated it in the oven. Meanwhile, my wife opened a fresh $1.49 (also on sale) package of cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage, carrots and such) and whipped up a fresh batch of slaw with mayo, vinegar, sugar and other herbs in her special recipe.

About $6.50 total.

We enjoyed a meal of some delicious fried chicken and cole slaw -- and have another equal-sized portion for another meal later in the week. $4.99 + $1.49 + some mayo and stuff cut in half means this meal cost us about $3.25. Not bad! And we didn't have to bread or fry the chicken, or shred the cole slaw stuff either.
