$5.00 Menu

Here is this week's menu. As usual I am trying to hit my target price of $5.00 per meal. I don't always make it, but it keeps me from going overboard too much. I calculate the cost of the main ingredients. I am able to get these ingredients at lower costs by shopping for items on sale and using coupons with the sale price. I usually round up the cost of my meal to compensate for the price of smaller ingredients such as spices.

Sunday -- Italian Vegetable and Asiago Bowties $4.00

Monday -- Red Beans and Rice with Homemade Tortillas (yes! I'm going to try making my own tortillas!) $2.00

Tuesday -- Broiled Salmon, green beans, scalloped potatoes $5.00

Wednesday -- Teriyaki Veggies with Rice $3.00

Thursday -- Black Bean Tacos $4.00

Friday -- Salad & Baked Potatoes $4.00

Saturday -- Pizza $2.00
