Stove Top Challenge



Is there a God? Well yes, Sassy, there is! And He LOVES stuffing...

A week ago we were contacted by STOVE TOP STUFFING to try to make FIVE meals for ten dollars each!!

Well, Sassy was jumping for JOY because stuffing is her FOOD OF CHOICE! You know how Bitchy is a salad junkie?? Well, Sassy is the stuffing junkie and to be quite honest, is almost as TIGHT as her dad, Tightwad.

I gave her $50.00 cash, and told her that she needed to plan and purchase items for FIVE meals with this money. She was allowed to use the spices and some things from our pantry, and she just went to town.

She decided to do stuffed chicken breasts, with carrots and a salad. I made her keep the receipt and PROVE to me that she met the cash limit. Smart-aleck that she IS, she kept this meal UNDER ten dollars, proving to me at last that she IS an over-achiever.

Chicken Breasts - $5.00
Stove top Stuffing (on SALE) $1.59
Frozen Carrots (also on sale) $.89

Total amount spent??????? $7.48!!!!

She put the boneless chicken breasts between Saran Wrap, pounded them to make them thin, and then after mixing the stove top stuffing up, she placed a large scoop inside each one. She rolled them up, put toothpicks in them and baked them on an oiled casserole dish. After baking for 35 minutes, she sliced them and put them on a plate.

Our meal was fantastic!

  4. Stove top rocks. Ok maybe I'm too old to say that. I was recently told by a 7 yr old that I was too old to talk like that when I said gummy worms are the bomb!

  9. OMG... we eat stuffing at every meal. Well, not EVERY meal but it's starting to feel like it.

    My husband and I recently went to see Bill Cosby live when he came to town and he has a short bit about Stove Top Stuffing that is really funny.

    I'll have to try fixing it the way your daughter did. Sounds yummy!

    Oh, and I'm zapping some "pick me" vibes through the air to Sassy's hand so she will pick my name out of the hat. Because I have boys and boys eat a lot.
