Monday:Pasta day!Frozen ravioli on markdown ($2), pasta sauce made with cheap tomatoes and red sauce and good hamburger meat ($2.50), with a side salad ($2) and garlic bread if I make it to the store ($1.50). Cheap, easy and good. Cost: About $8. *Again because we skipped it last week.
Tuesday:Taco Tuesday!Soft tacos, spanish rice, and refried beans. Ground beef is $5, tortillas $1, cheese $.50, sour cream $.50 and veggies $1. Rice, rotel, and refried beans were free with coupons. Cost will be about $8. *Prices are going up.
Wednesday: Crockpot meal!BBQ Pork. Throw 2 lbs or so of pork loin in the crockpot with a bottle of free barbeque sauce. Serve on buns with french fries. Easy as anything. Cost: Under $5. I overestimated myself. It was a fend for yourself after I finished my volunteer shift.
Thursday:New Recipe Day!I haven’t found one that just makes my skirt fly up, but I’ll edit when I find something. Maybe?
Friday:Freezer Meal! Time to have a freezer buffet. We’ve got a bunch of small things that need to be eaten up, so everyone can pick and choose.
Saturday:Fend for yourself/clean out the fridge/freezer day.
