Last week at Fred Meyer they had Fresh Cod on sale for $3.99 per pound. I asked how much a whole fillet weighed and was surprised to find out that it wasn't even a pound. Apparently Cod is not very dense therefore doesn't weigh much.
Earlier in the week my husband zero'd in on the Chayote Squash at Winco. They were $0.88 each.
I cooked the Cod in a little Olive Oil, Lemon juice and pepper. I cooked the Chayote in Olive Oil, minced garlic and salt & pepper. Served with some brown rice and Voila! The entire family ate for less than $5.00 and our meal was healthy and easy.
