How Low Can You Go??? Menu Challange WEDNESDAY

NO Grocery store trips for me today but it was really tempting!!

I didnt plan well yesterday (Wednesday).

I went riding in the morning, then worked on homeschool, then I started making phone calls for Life insurance and an appt to get our taxes done and before I knew it late and I forgot to put something in the crockpot for dinner. Sigh.

Since the twins love soup and can eat it every night I made them homemade vegetable soup. Just used what I had so it was easy.8 cups water, beef stock, tomato sauce, can italian stewed tomatoes, carrots, celery, potatoes, & onion. I added some noodles 10 min before it was done. The twins are eatting machines right now and they ate the entire pot of soup!

Break down:

Noodles .25
Celery .25
carrots .50
beef stock .10
stewed tomatoes .75
jar tomato sauce 1.00
potatoes .20
1/2 onion .15
total $3.20

For the hubby and me , I made mash taters, that I topped with groundbeef, onion and gravy, and for side dish I heated a bag of green giant vegetables with sauce. It was really good :)

8 mash taters 1.60 (theres leftovers)
ground beef 2.00
gravy .25
gg veggies .50 ( theres leftovers)
onion .15
total $4.50
Total for dinner $7.70 :)

I think I did pretty good for just throwing dinner together on the fly! :)

You crack me up. Thanks for your comment :).

You did great on dinner last night! I was so proud of myself the other night because we were out of regular mac n' cheese, so I made some from scratch! It didn't taste very good though. Could have been the reduced fat cheese. Ack!

Great job! Some of the greatest meals are those thrown together at the last minute! Blessings!

Well, I've made it farther this week than I thought I could. We have Blue & Gold banquet tonight so we eat with the Scouts. It's been amazing how creative I've become this week. And nobody has complained about dinner so I must be doing okay! Go me!!
