My mom puts chicken breast and bbq sauce in the crock pot, its okay but gets old fast.

Brunswick stew would be good. I like navy beans and salt pork too. Pot roast with potatoes and stuff. Vegetable soup.

They also make a ramen noodle cook book too.

Pretty much anything you cook yourself will be cheaper than a restaurant. No need to restrict yourself to a crockpot:

Food Lion has a history of bleaching out of date meats (pre packaged and meat case) to regain a normal color, then repackaging and putting new expiration dates.

Pulled pork via a pork butt isn't bad in the crock pot. Thought my Fiance was on crack when she first mentioned this.

If you have local farmers markets, go to those. Much cheaper, much fresher, better quality. Eat what is in season. Apples from New Zealand are expensive.

Get a pasta cookbook and use it. Nothing is easier than cooking pasta with various sauces, veggies, and meats.

To add onto this, I'd also eat less meat that is higher quality than buy cheap ass meat. For $20 or $25 cash I can buy 10 days worth of fruit and vegetables from our farmers markets and it's fresh, good quality and locally grown.

This is very old news..... I agree they and everyone else did this as a practice 20 or more years ago, and it was a eye opener for the industry as a whole. But nowadays this would be instant suicide for any company and might go on in smaller chains but i highly doubt it.

Good to know it was a somewhat normal practice, but its about as morally and ethically bankrupt as a grocery provider can get. Wouldn't give them a dime for that reason.
