What has Cheap Thrills planned for this week?
I’ve enjoyed the time and energy I’ve had to really cook last week. I also had time to make more cookies, as well as some treats: pumpkin spice mini muffins, brownie pops (trial run), and nice, healthy breakfasts. This week I’ll be doing more cooking for the approaching cold weather. Here’s what I have planned:
Sunday: Grilled cheese (FREE cheese) sandwiches for the guys, tomato soup (.24) (after Rake It Out)
Monday: Chicken enchiladas from the freezer (FREE chicken, .99 tortillas, .99 cheese, .50 cream cheese, homemade enchilada sauce = .30), whole grain taco rice (.38 total) for the guys
Tuesday: Extra lean burger ($1/#) stroganoff (.60 for all), salad (.50 for all)
Wednesday: Pork bbq from the freezer (<.99/#), steak fries (~.30 for potatoes), slaw or salad (.50)
Friday: Pasta with Beans and Sweet Italian Sausage (pasta .50, beans .39, sausage $1.50, tomatoes .35)
Saturday: (Last week I subbed this dish for “wing it” turkey chili (~$3 for the pot) and chips (.99) b/c we were watching the game) Highly seasoned beef pot roast (splurge, but got FREE vegs), potatoes (~.30) for the guys, carrots ($1)
