Recently, Mr. Ghilie and I went out to eat a steak dinner where we live. Friday nights, The Spot serves the most fabulous steak and shrimp dinner… but the total was about thirty dollars. Last week I made us steak and mashed potatoes at home for under ten. It got me thinking – how much does it really cost us eat?
Tonight, I made split pea soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. The soup was .99, add some bacon (.50), a third a loaf of bread (.50) and six slices of Kraft singles, also .50. I also added some spices to the soup, and some margarine. So our whole dinner cost about $2.75. It was pretty good, but not particularly healthy.
I got some time coming up, and I think I am going to start a new project starting next week – eating healthy dinners on $5.00 or less. Can it be done? Maybe not by me. I’m not a particularly good cook. But I’m gonna give it a shot.
Anyone got any good recipes?
