Sometimes, while I am making dinner or trying to think of something to write about, I forget if I have blogged about the particular dinner I am making (or going to make that night). So, because I am lazy and because I think it would be convenient for the readers, too, I am compiling all of my Five Dollar Dinners on one post. I will regularly update this post as I add more dinners. And I have a lot more to add. (Thirty!)
In case you are late to the game, Five Dollar Dinners are dinners I make at home for us three Joneses that cost less than five dollars to make. Entirely. Not five dollars per serving or per person. Five dollars to make the whole meal. And that's five dollars from the grocery store in Hawaii, which has the highest grocery costs in the nation. So, I know, that my dinners will cost less in your neck of the woods.
Here are my Five Dollar Dinners:
Fried Chicken and Deviled Eggs
Mushroom and Spinach Calzones
Spicy Bean Burritos
Steak Kabobs and Onions
Turkey and Dressing
These are recipes that are not dinners, but things you need to know how to do to make the dinners so cheap:
Cream of Chicken
If you have any recipes that are cheap to make (and delicious! don't forget delicious!), then please share in the comments!
