Zero food waste, variety on the menu, using stuff up.
Sale priced London Broil bought during 4th of July sales, marinated in the remaining half of a mixed up jar of McCormick's " herb vegetable marinade mix" that I bought off of the marked down shelf at 37 cents/pouch. Stretched over 2 meals, it cost me 19 cents/use.
Sunday supper this week: marinated London broil that was seared in a cast iron skillet, baked potatoes with butter, salt and pepper as well as sour cream if desired, butter/sugar COTC. This is our version of steak in our home. I pick up LB when it's $2.50 or less a lb, I can't afford the Tbones, sirloin, ribeye steaks. This works, we get our steak craving satiated, on a budget.
Saturday tends to be supper for one, as the kids are out and about. No worries, I try to plan ahead and avoid any temptation to "treat myself" with a take out supper. This week's dinner for one: Mediterranean crusted Salmon fillet (I grab these when they are on sale for $5; 2 fillets per pkg so $2.50 a serving), the rest of some fzn tater tots, frn spinach seasoned with butter, salt/pepper. I've estimated that this was $3. Far cheaper than a take out, quality is superior as well.
