Cheap Chicken, Pepperoni and Black Olive Pizza!

Last night I used some pantry items to make dinner:
1 can of Tyson chicken breasts -- Paid about $1 at Publix months ago, this is a rather large can
1/2 package of Hormel Pepperoni -- Paid less than $1 for the package, so half would be around $.45
1/2 can of Black Olives -- my 2.5 y/o ate the other 1/2 of the can of olives -- $1.19 Aldi's
1 can of Muir Glen Tomato Sauce FREE at Publix a few months back
1 package of Kroger pizza crust ?  I think it was about a $1
1 package of Kraft cheese $.75 on sale and used a coupon

So for a little more than $4 we had dinner for the family and it was very good!

Making Dinner Out of my Stockpile!

So I decided to cook a pork 2.62 pound pork tenderloin I had in the freezer.  It's been in the freezer since last year when I bought it for $5.95.  To go with it I'm cooking white potatoes (paid about $1.50), organic carrots ($1 on sale), frozen corn-on-the-cob (Bird's Eye steamers -- used a coupon and got them for about $.20 a bag) and a 4-pack of King's Hawaiian rolls (FREE using peelie from Tyson entree).  The total cost for the meal will be about $8.65 for a whole-lot-a food -- I'm sure we'll be eating leftovers for a while!
