I've made it my goal this summer to find new healthy recipes that I can make from scratch using inexpensive ingredients Seeing as that I have a lot of ideas that I want to try, I've decided to add recipes and food as a main topic of my blog. I will still be reviewing and discussing beauty products, but I'm just going to feature healthy foods just as often! :)
The hubby and I are on a budget this month, so when we went shopping yesterday, I made sure to get some ingredients and items that could be used in different ways.
Some of the things I purchased were:
extra virgin olive oil
whole wheat pasta
jar of alfredo pasta sauce
can of refried beans
yellow bell pepper
bag of popcorn
All of this? +/- $40.00, and I'll get at least 5 dinners and a couple desserts out of it.
Dinner 1: Whole wheat pasta with zucchini and white sauce
Dinner 2: Chicken fajitas with homemade tortillas and pico de gallo (I already had tomatoes)
Dinner 3: Baked chicken sausage with red potatoes and carrots
Dinner 4: Pork chops with brown rice
Dinner 5: Bean and cheese burritos with homemade tortillas
Dessert 1: Peach and apple pie (I already had apples)
Dessert 2: Sugar cinnamon cookies
What do you think? Did I do a good job shopping? Do you have any ideas on how I could have saved more money?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and comments!
