What are your favorite frugal menus? At some point most home cooks have experienced a tight grocery budget for a week. During those lean times, diets become a lower priority on the grocery list. Items like Ramen Noodle Soup, eggs, beans, rice, and potatoes become high priority. Some of my best recipes evolved out of frugal menu creativity when the cupboards were bare.
If you only had eggs, beans, rice, Ramen Noodle Soup, a bag of frozen vegetables, one type of meat like ground hamburger or pork links, what would you make?
If you had $25 to spend on groceries, what would be the priorities on your list? $35? $50? What special recipes would you create with these budgets?
This week I plan to make a recipe I've not tried before. I'm practicing frugal cooking this week and am excited about creating recipes. The recipe title of the recipe I am creating is called Orange Pork Sausage and Vegetables. My planned recipe goes something like this:
1 box pork links
1 pkg. frozen California vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, and more)
fried rice in rice vinegar
I will take pictures so you can see how it turns out. Check back throughout the week to find out the results. Thank you for your visit to my blog today.
