Well I have taken some time to peruse the Miserly Meals book I grabbed from the library yesterday. There are quite a few meals that sound good and agreeable to a typical family. After reviewing this book, I am looking for my own copy, and just entered it into my wish list on paperbackswap.com. If I have no luck, I will probably buy a used copy from Amazon. I seem to have found this book at just the right time now that we need to come up lots-o-cash for the closing costs. We have some seller concession, though not the amount we were trying to get, so still need quite a chunk of change. WHEW.........
Here is the list of meals I have decided to try first:
--banana smoothies 3/4 cup serving @ .57 ea.
--oven roasted vegetables--1/2 Cup @ .30
--Jam chicken--1/4 C @ .66
--calzones--1 calzone @.34
--Boston Chicken--1/4 lb @.75
--Basic freezer meatballs--6 meatballs @.24
--Broccoli Beef--1 C @.64
--Baked chicken nuggets--1/4 lb @ .67
--meatloaf--6 oz @ .37
--honey chicken--1/4 lb @ .75
As I make each recipe, I'll update and show *actual* cost for the recipes today.
