cheap eats YUMMY

When you're broke as a joke, what's for dinner? I've exhausted my creativeness and $5 footlongs are looking good right now. Must taste like real food... I am not a bunny.

  • I shop as much as possible at Save A LOT & Aldi's, in addition to Produce Junction (kind of a farmers market). I can make pasta & meatballs for the three of us (me, my SO, & my 3.5 yr old) with plently of leftovers. Personally, a $5 foot long would be much more expensive for us. Creative, no, yummy, yes :) I always add (depending on what I have on hand) garlic, onions, & peppers to my (usually) jarred sauce.

  • My neighbors had a surplus of zucchini and potatoes, so they shared with us (and other neighbors) so tonight I sauted zucchini and onion with some seasoning in olive oil, and thinly sliced potato and onion, put olive oil and some butter over them and cooked in the microwave. I had some leftover tomato and chicken soup. It made a filling, and very cheap, meal.
