Whats your meal Under Five?

Who can spend the least?

The assumption is that you have seasonings, eggs, milk, butter.

Everything else you must buy under five dollars.


My meal: Shrimp & Broccoli Alfredo

Baby Salad Shrimp: 1.00 per Bag (When on sale at Shoppers Market)

Alfredo Sauce: 1.50 (3 for 5 store brand)

Steam Fresh Broccoli (1.00)

Angel Hair Pasta (1.00)

Total: 4.50$

I would be afraid of shrimp that was only $1.

I'd do spaghetti. Depending on everywhere or not I have ground turkey wound determine if we'd have plain sauce or meat sauce.

I have veggies. I think I could buy pasta and sauce for $5.

 Where in the world do you get 1 pound of beef for $1 per pound.  Around here it is about $4.00 per pound.

Quoting Bertha21:

chili.
1 pound of beef-$1
2 cans of beans- > $2
chili seasoning packet- $1
2 tomato sauces-$1
