Just use the spinnaker pole with the main halyard and process the beast on the front deck. Good for a dinghy hoist too.

OF course I don't even like cleaning fish, so there you go.

Doh! That's true.

Anyhow, in a nutshell, he buys and cooks great healthy food for $21 a week but he is only on day 1. Interested in seeing how well he does the rest of the week.

My wife is now doing the $1 a meal challenge.

If you can do it, it's better to make a round of stores to take advantage of the best deals in each and plan 2nd for when you can't get to the "best" store for an item.

For example, cream is 8.00 per quart King Soopers and 8.00 per half gallon at Costco. Total no brained right? But Costco is way out of my way if I don't need a long list of items. So I go to Target for cream for 4.19 per quart. Only 40 cents more than Costco for a half gallon.

Another tip: Scout the half price meat bin. The meat will still be good but there might only be a day or two left on code. Cook the meat right away and freeze the cooked meat for later use in casseroles, stews, enchiladas, etc.


The Ramen noodles thing....I did that too for a while. And man was I skinny! Not good!
Good stuff! My wife just scored a huge cuban bread loaf for 30 cents at Walmart. Thats enough for three meals for us.

I have a confession to make... I LOVE RAMAN NOODLES. Add some peas, carrots, shallots, and some pulled chicken... whatever... and it makes a great lunch. I know I know full of MSG.

Very true! There's a restaurant in Hawai'i that serves only Saimin, IIRC, they have over 40 different versions of it. I've dropped an egg into it, added some garnishes, some left over deli meat or chicken. You can really perk it up with just about anything!
