Not only am I a mechanic, but I also enjoy to cook!
Lets all share some cheap dinner recipes with each other and post them here! I am not talking about the "Dollar Menu" at your local fast food joint, but a cheap homemade meal anyone can do at home.

Ecomeal Guidelines

The meal must cost around $10.00 US
The meal must feed 2 people minimum
Condiments, gas to purchase, fuel to prepare or cook are not to be figured into cost
Normal, store bought items only

I guess I shall start off....................

Beer Bird

One 3-4 pound chicken
Seasoned Salt
1 12-16oz can of beer
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup ground pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Combine the 1/4 cup of salt with the black pepper and garlic powder and set aside. Wash the chicken inside and out and pat dry. Season the chicken inside and out with the combination mixture. Open the beer and drink or discard about 1/3 of the can. carefully place chicken standing up on the beer can and push it onto the beer so it will stand without falling and place in a casserole dish or baking pan. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Chicken is done when juices run clear after piercing with a fork. Remove from oven and season with seasoned salt.

Serve with a side of rice or noodles and veggie of your choice.
