delish by MSN has a great list of 12 Healthy Dinners for $3 a Serving. I have to say I love the look of these recipes. Now for a family of four that does put you at $12 for dinner, but that’s still better than any restaurant (although not quite as good as $5 Dinners).
Most of these dinners have an ethnic flair, and both meat, fish, and vegetarian meals are represented. I’m most looking forward to trying the Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms, but I think my husband will love the Hawaiian Ginger-Chicken Stew.
Not everyone is going to like these recipes, but you can use them as a foundation for your own experiment. Adding a $1 worth of ground beef can completely change the concept of a dish.
Frugal eating is very important to me, but my concept of frugal food used to be rice and beans. No more! I love food and have recently been re-discovering how to cook. I’ll look forward to sharing my kitchen experiments with you all.
