Tonights dinner feeds 4 adults, 6 kids and costs $9.67 (with leftovers for lunch)

Pulled BBQ pork sandwiches (7lb pork roast 98clb, 10 hamburger buns 1.10 )

Mashed potatoes (1/3 of a 10lb bag 46c)

Fresh express salad mix (50c)

Fudge brownies (75c)

All items were bought on sale, with coupons.

There is enough left over pulled pork for 6-8 more sandwiches, yeah!

My goal for dinner costs is no more than $10 for dinner 5-8 times a month, the rest of the time it must be $5 or less for dinner.  We save our $10 dinners for when we have friends over.

Updated:  Ok, it fed 2 adults and 4 kids (3 of whom eat like adults) with 2nds for everyone (except mom) PLUS more than 1/2 of the pork left over for another meal.  YEAH!
