Making A Budget Friendly Meal

At a time when retailers are making it a marketing game against the general consumer you can still win.

My husband loves to eat out and I don’t like to cook but even with the skyrocketing prices it is cheaper and healthier to eat at home. Here is one meal you can fix at home for about ten bucks and still feed about four people.

Crock Pot Easy Fix

You can’t go wrong with this boneless Applewood Spiral Ham ($8.49 at Food Lion). Add red potatoes, apple slices and broccoli. I added just enough water to cook the veggies.

You can also still save at the checkout by using coupons. While coupons are limited most larger grocery chains have their own savings programs.

Stock up on staples that can be put in plastic containers for long term storage like flour, sugar, oatmeal, dried beans when they are on sale.

Make the most of reward programs…they do make a difference in the long run. Stay healthy and throw your savings into a jar for that special event or purchase.

Have a great day!

No Nonsense Meals

I admittedly don’t like to cook! At my age it is more important than ever to eat healthy.

My husband is a great cook but seems to fail miserably when it comes to adding veggies to the menu.

So here is my quick lunch…

Collards & Cornbread

Ok before you turn up your nose at it, it is simple, uses leftovers, and cost pennies to make!

I zapped frozen leftover collards in the microwave. The cornbread was made from a mix (Southeastern Mills Cornbread Mix) and baked in a bread pan at 400 degrees.

It was delicious, nutritional and easy to make.

Have a great day!

Great Eats

My husband will tell you that I am a very finicky eater, which I am. As a photography I am always on the lookout for unique places and things when I spotted this sign: Rose’s Kitchen.

This place looks like an old store but clearly has its own personality

Ms. Mary took our order and made sure we had everything we needed. She and other staff members could not have been nicer.

Thanks Ms. Mary for a great dining experience.

As a Google rater I will have to give this establishment a 10 * rating. Here is what I had that earned that rating:

I selected a vegetarian plate of potatoes salad,cabbage and seven layer salad.

Want to know how to get there? Travel north on 903 from Maury NC toward Greenville and just watch for the sign. It will be worth the effort to get there

Have a great Sunday and don’t forget to visit my friends at Rose’s Kitchen.
