I have no idea what the difference in $$ is between the whole chicken vs breasts but somehow I'm coming ahead as far as the food program goes on that meal.

My kids LOVE kidney beans. Since my dck's are young, I make deconstructed chili: kidney beans (meat), diced tomatoes (veg), I can't remember what the other veg is k and cornbread.

We also do black bean and cheese quesadillas a lot and bean and cheese burritos. I just cook a bag of pinto beans in the crockpot one day and then freeze can sized portions. I throw a bag in a small pot, add a teensy bit of oil salt and pepper, and mush it as they warm up.
