Meet one of my heros: Cheapskate Mary http://www.debtproofliving.com/. Mary Hunt has devoted her life to encouraging people to live simply and debt free. Definitely what I am interested in! Although we have yet to achieve a debt free life, we are trying to be aware of what we need to spend our money on versus what we want. And so far, this approach has enabled us to live on one income for close to 11 years. Ok, I have held part-time jobs along the way but nothing that was a major income producer.
Anyway, on to Cheapskate Chicken, also known as Blasted Chicken. You can not get a better meal for less money and time involved. Very simple. Mary printed this recipe in her newpaper column several years ago and it has become a family favorite. Take one whole chicken, completely thawed. Rinse, dry, salt and pepper the chicken. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place chicken in a roasting pan, bake for 45 mins until juices run clear.
