This delicious meal of roasted turkey (on the grill) with cranberry sauce & pasta salad cost $2.18. The joke in our house is “how much did this meal cost”. Usually I am anywhere from $5.00 – $8.00 for the meal so when I figured out that it was $2.18 I had to do my little happy dance. Now don’t forget I am feeding 4 grown people (not little kids) and my son eats for 2 sometimes 3. This meal feed us all and there were some leftovers for lunch. I am also making soup with the rest. Here is how it worked out:

Turkey $0.00 free during the Easter holiday deal at ShopRite
Wacky Mac pasta: $.49 just bought them at Pathmark
Olive Oil: $.05
Broccoli: $.50 I used frozen broccoli I had gotten on sale at ShopRite a month ago
Tomatoes: $.89 I got them at ShopRite in the reduced price section
Cranberry sauce: $.50 I had purchased at Aldis
Total: $2.18 for all 4

If you have never cooked your turkey on the barbecue grill you should. It was delicious and my husband thinks he is now Bobby Flay. I do have to give him credit though…he cooked it perfectly!
