$5.00 Menu

I always aim for $5.00 a meal, sometimes I'm a little over. I calculate the main ingredients prices and round up for smaller ingredients such as spices. I am able to make most dinners for $5.00 or less because of my coupon shopping and stockpiling.

Sunday --Spaghetti and garlic bread $1.50

Monday -- Black bean tacos $3.00

Tuesday -- Broccoli & Rice Casserole from the Crockpot $4.00

Wednesday -- Baked Ziti in Crockpot $4.50 (I will delete the meat and probably add some red/green bell peppers to the mix)

Thursday -- Green beans, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies $2.50

Friday -- Dance Class! Grilled Cheese and soup $3.00

Saturday -- Homemade pizza (I'll add some veggies and brush the crust with garlic butter to give more flavor)

I'm trying to do more crockpot recipes in order to cut down on using the stove/oven. Conserve energy and keep the electric bill down.
