Expensive and Free

What a weird title huh?!

Last nights dinner was a bit on the expensive side. We had steaks and corn on the cob.

Steaks were $7.75 and corn I'm estimating maybe $1.25 since we used about half a bag.

$9 total.

Tonight we are having leftover soup. Since I added the entire total in my last post I'm putting this down as FREE! YAY!

New Recipe

We tried a new recipe tonight for cheesy veggie soup. It made such a HUGE batch of soup. I have several containers left of it that I froze and some saved for lunch. Its expensive by the whole but when I use it up as leftovers it will help the cost.

Frozen Hasbrowns~$1.93
California Veggies~$1.19
4 Bouillon Cubes~50¢ (??)
Velveeta (store brand) $3.99
2 cr. of mushroom soups~98¢

Total is $6.82.

Adding in a few more days

Monday's nights dinner was OH so gourmet! NOT! LOL But I remind myself I don't have to cook elaborate meals often...we just need to eat not to be hungry.

Hot Dogs and Buns~$1.50 ish
Green Beans~50¢


Last night we had Spaghetti and Garlic Bread.

Garlic Bread~$1.50


Tonight I'm trying a new recipe called Cheesy Vegetable soup. I'll be back later with totals!
