LOK Kitchen Challenge! $10/$15 for a Day.

As was discussed on the LOK Full House blog, we have been doing a little re-tooling of our bi-monthly challenge. It will now include general kitchen challenges, as well as cooking assignments. However, to help promote our new blog here at LOK, our first kitchen challenge will be a cooking one!

This challenge was inspired by this blog posting at CookingWithAnne.com. Anne previously co-hosted the Cooking Challenge, and definitely worth reading. In her most recent entry, Anne talks about the current KFC promotion where families are challenged to feed their family of 4 a comparable meal for under $10. Most frugal moms can feed their family on $10 a day! So that is the goal of the challenge. On a budget of $10, feed a family of 4 for a day. Now, since this is a large family blog, we understand that many of our readers will have 6 or more in their family. So, we will up the amount to $15 for families with 4 or more children.

The meals must include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast and lunch can be one-dish, but dinner must include a main course and sides. You do not have to include drinks in your budget. Since all dishes are factored into the KFC ad, you must account for everything other than "prepping" staples like seasoning, flour, etc.

Participants should post in the comments section with a link to your entry. If you don't have a web-presence, email us at lotsofkids123[at]aol.com with info for your submission and we'll post it for you.

Contest ends October 31st, with the winner announced November 5th!

Since I came in late with my entry, couldn't make the meals or take pictures and didn't follow the true rules (realized when I was finished)...I've unofficially posted my entry with a twist.
