Turning a new leaf.


 

So for anyone who has been up to date on my life, my sweet beloved glorious Subaru is on her last leg of life, supposedly. She has 230k miles on her. Her head gaskets were replaced in 2010, she had a brand new radiator, all new hoses and plugs, a BRAND spanking new battery and a few other additions. She also, however, has her original 1997 motor, starter and alternator. She has new tires and is in really good condition considering her life-span, which includes a drive clear across the country from her home of Virginia to her new home, Seattle.

That being said, the fantastic EverSoLightly and I are having to do some MAJOR budget cuts to help with the purchase of a new car and payments and such.

So, one of the places we can, and should, and will be cutting back is food! So I’ve developed a hopeful idea. ALL our meals are going to cost us UNDER $10 each. Snacks, will be made if possible, to help save even more money. Today I’m going to try and tackle home-made crackers. But that’ll be later and for a different post.

Recipes I’m hoping to be able to make under $10:

Chili and cornbread
Veggie Stir-Fry, EverSoLightly isn’t a big veggie eater so I’m hoping to put more veggies into our diet.
Tomato soup and grilled cheese, both home made.
Beef Stroganoff
Tuna Casserole
Chicken Enchiladas
Tacos
and once a month I’ll splurge to make a DELICIOUS meal. This month’s meal (actually it’ll probably be October…) Lamb Stew! Yum!

Do any of you have any recipes you think would work? pass them along! I’ll try them out! 😀
