Budget Meals

I know! Me?! ๐Ÿ˜† I do, I do…sometimes. Now, with more reading of The Minimalist (along with current administration/nut house causing inflation…out of control…within 6 monthsโ€ผ๏ธ), I decided to do more, so not only did I make the usual good meals from Thanksgiving leftovers, but I’ve been shopping at the dollar store (weigh quality, quantity, price) before I head over to grocery store; no extra gas because they’re across the street from each other. One thing new was with chili hot dogs ๐ŸŒญ I didn’t go with Boar’s Head or Dietz & Watson, not even Hebrew National or Nathan’s; no I went with Oscar Mayer bun length for $2.99. AND Wonder Bread buns! ๐Ÿคญ generic french fries, homemade brown gravy, and it was all good! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜‹

Another day I used the rest of candied sweet potatoes with skinless chicken thighs (that I can get a very delicious crispy outside on ๐Ÿ˜‰) & twice baked potatoes.

Yet another I made Dirty Rice as our entrรฉe; it’s enough for us.

Others…like homemade pizzas ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿ˜‰ with flatbread ๐Ÿซ“ ๐Ÿ˜‹

Spaghetti… I usually use Hunts, if not Cento, BUT I tried dollar store Spaghetti & cheapest tomato paste, etc.. It was good, with some doctoring ๐Ÿ˜‰ GARLIC ๐Ÿง„ seasonings.

Shepherd’s Pie is always good ๐Ÿ˜‹

Don’t forget sloppy joes ๐Ÿ˜‹

Chicken Soup! ๐Ÿ”

I do love linen ๐Ÿ˜† yet not ironing ๐Ÿงบ
