At least once a week, have breakfast for dinner, eggs are so inexpensive. And there are so many ways to use them, omelets, pancakes, french toast. A half dozen eggs and a loaf of day old bread can feed a family of 4, and that whole meal would probably cost under $2.
Where do you live that bread and eggs are so cheap? I live in Northern CA, where a dozen eggs run over $4 and a loaf of "cheap" bread is nearly $2.
In Washington, cheap bread is about 1.00 and eggs are about 1.30 a dozen. You can usually find the bigger sandwich bread, 7 grain and what not, for 2 for 3.00 or 2 for 4.00 on sale at least once a month at Fred Meyer. They also have a day old rack for bread that comes from the bakery that is cheap. We buy up a bunch and freeze it. Sounds like Northern CA is an expensive place to eat.
Wow! I feel sorry for the both of you. I live in Southern Missouri and eggs were 2 dozen large eggs for $1 and the good whole wheat bread is $1.14 a loaf. We also have discount/salvage grocery stores here where the prices are really low. Nectarines and peaches there are .49 lb. They also have name brands of cereal for $1.50 a box.
