Broccoli, cheddar and potato soup
2 pounds potatoes: .85
Broccoli florets: 1.00
Carrots: .20
Bacon: 1.00
spices: .25
Milk: .40
Cheese: 2.00
Crescent rolls: 1.25

Total: $6.95, so that’s a bit over my $5.00 limit. I costed out the broccoli at $1.00 because I used only the florets. The broccoli stalks will be ground up and used for tomorrow’s meatloaf. And we have a lot of leftovers, so it all works out in the end. Also, I planned on making biscuits at a cost of .50 instead of the more expensive crescent rolls, but I ran out of milk.

Tomorrow’s dinner: Meatloaf cupcakes
Ground beef: 2.01
Broccoli stalks: .69
Carrots: .20
Oats: .10
Egg: .15
Spices: .20
Ketchup: .10

Total: 3.45. I got 1.55 to play with for a side. I may serve with biscuits (if I get milk) and peas. I got frozen peas on sale for .88, and any leftovers can extend the can of split pea soup I got in the cupboard.
