This weeks menu of cheap, easy meals. Less than $100/week. Week ending 8-22-13





We're aiming to have a restorative and relaxing week after all the traveling and last minute preparations for Jon's new business venture. There's nothing quite like gathering everyone around the table for a home cooked meal. Watching my two year old throw peas on the wall while my husband and I play rock-paper-scissors to see who has to do the dishes. It's a beautiful thing.

Fair warning... I'm just entering into my second trimester of pregnancy and am having a tough time eating. Bagels and cream cheese seem to be the only thing I can keep down in the am so they're here to stay for a few weeks. I also have aversions to chicken, oatmeal, black beans, and meatballs which makes life a little difficult some days. Let's just say we'll have some interesting meals for the next few weeks.

Click on the meal name for a recipe. We use MealBoard which stores all your recipes, generates your shopping list, organizes by aisle in the grocery store and gives you a total price for your list. I round my prices up, so it's usually a little lower. You can find out more about MealBoard here.

If you love these ideas, feel free to put your email address in the box to the right and I'll email you our menu plan every friday morning. 

We're heading to an investor dinner on Saturday night (for Potomac Ale Works, Prince William County's first brewery!), so we're good for that night. I snagged a 10 pound bag of potatoes at the Price Rite (similar to Aldi Grocery) for $3.00 last week, so there's a lot of potato dishes! 

We have a freezer and pantry stocked with veggies, and we always get extra lettuce since we both love salad. We also have a club pack of vanilla yogurt from Wegmans that we can add to breakfasts or snacks. (I adore pineapple in yogurt!)

Like me on Facebook! Pretty Please?

If you get a chance, click here to head to my facebook page and like it. The Facebook page is a great way to share quick tips and projects that don't warrant an entire blog post. You can find out where you can get Sistema lunch containers for only $2.99 this week, or how my latest project worked out (slow cooker applesauce and DIY body wash were both major wins this weekend!) Plus, you can say "Hey!" and make my whole day better!

Santa Fe Rice and Beans Recipe: Feeds 6 for $3.00!

"

Let me introduce you to the cheapest, most delicious dinner in the world. If you need to reduce your grocery bill quickly, this dinner will do the trick. One dish makes enough to serve 2 adults and 4 children for two meals! We usually finish it up for lunch the next day.  If you happen to be on a rice and beans budget, then what better dish than rice and beans? You can add an easy veggie or fruit to this to make a complete dinner. We had leftover apples in the fridge so we served this with apple slices.


Ingredients:

2 cups cooked white rice
1 can black beans (use what you have, this tastes great with kidney beans as well)
1 cup of corn kernels (frozen or canned)
1 1/4 cups of salsa, diced tomatoes or diced tomatoes with chilies (like rotel)
1 cup sour cream 
1 cup of Mexican cheese (we've used cheddar, monterey jack or a taco blend that wegmans sells)

Optional:
Toss in anything around the house you think would work with it.
Examples: chilies, spices, cream cheese, sliced olives, chopped onion, chopped green pepper, whatever floats your boat.



Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cook the rice according to package directions, combine all ingredients, reserving half of the cheese to sprinkle on top. Season with salt and pepper. 

Transfer to a greased baking dish (about 2 quart) and spoon ingredients in. 

Top with the reserved cheese. If you forgot to reserve cheese- don't worry, it will still be delicious.

Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes. Then remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
If you don't have foil. Don't stress, it'll be fine. Or you can bake it for 30 without the cheese on top, then add the cheese and finish cooking for another 10 minutes.

Costs of goods figured at Aldi.
Cost:

Rice: $ .25
Black beans: $ .55
Corn: $ .49 for 1 can
Salsa: $ .57
Sour cream: $ .60
Cheese: $ .94

Total: $3.40 to feed 2 adults and 4 children for 2 meals.

Cost per meal: $1.70
Cost per person: $ .29

Just for illustrative purposes- if you could eat this for 3 meals a day, every day for a month, then your monthly grocery bill would be $153 or $39 a week!  (But don't do that! We have much better options for just a few dollars more).

The Secret to Getting Free MP3's for Life...



One of the best things that I've learned over the last three years is how to get any music you want without ever paying for it. We're pretty cheap (have you figured that out yet?) and likely wouldn't be spending money on music if these ways didn't exist.

1. The Library 

Your local library stocks thousands of albums, all available to you for free. Head over to amazon (or iTunes) and make a wish list of all your favorite songs, note the album that the song is on. Head to your library website and reserve the albums. Most libraries have online reservations where they pull the requested item and you just drop by and pick it up. Get a few albums at once. You can then import them into your computer and they will save as MP3's. With iTunes, this happens automatically. As soon as the disc is recognized by the computer a notification will pop up asking permission to import the songs to iTunes. You can then connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to transfer the music to your device.
While there's no feasible way of enforcing copyright laws on this (the same way you don't plan to get in trouble if you borrow your friends CD and import it), I'm not suggesting that you illegally download music that you haven't paid for. But you can keep the downloaded music for as long  as you have the CD out (four months in our library and then you can renew it by bringing it back in). If you have an awesome library, then they'll likely have popular albums out as soon as they are released. Save time for popular songs by getting albums like "Now that's what I call music", which will have songs from the current top charts. Shout out to the Prince William County Library for being completely awesome and stocking Joe Purdy. 

2. Amazon Prime Music

This service just launched recently and it's amazing! If you already use amazon prime for free shipping on amazon products and free movies (much like netflix), you know that at a cost of only about $5.00/month (but you pay yearly), the benefits are huge! You can borrow kindle books through the amazon prime lending library and now you can get MP3's for free through their service. It works much like the Prime Movie service. They have a huge selection of songs available at any time and you just save them to playlists so that you can listen to them as you wish. I found almost 70 songs from them and have been listening happily for about 4 days now.

3. Pandora, Last, Radio, Soundwave, Spotify etc.

There are about a dozen free apps and websites that you can stream live music of your choosing from. All of them are great options. We play the Mumford and Sons channel on Pandora almost 24/7 at our house. It's cooking music, cleaning music and relaxing music. Even Xbox has free music options! 


I will say that when there's an artist that we particularly want to support, we'll bite the bullet and buy the MP3 to support that artist (Joe Purdy and Rusted Root comes to mind immediately). Our goal here is not to deny artists the money that is due them. If we didn't have the above options for free music, then we would  just use pandora and not buy music. By using these options, we're more likely to purchase products/songs from that artist after we've fallen in love with them.

Cheap Dinner Ideas That You'll Want To Make Right Now. Recipes Included.

Our Weekly Menu Plan

Week Ending 8/15/14

We're super excited to be headed to Virginia Beach for the weekend! We have $100 budgeted out of vacation funds for the food for that trip for the 3 of us. We'll be meeting family out to eat so eating in the hotel would defy the purpose of the trip. We used the grocery budget savings of that trip to have some more expensive meals this week (Baked Italian Sub Sandwiches are about $25! But I've been craving them and wanted to take advantage of a short grocery budget week). 

Fair warning... I'm just entering into my second trimester of pregnancy and am having a tough time eating. Bagels and cream cheese seem to be the only thing I can keep down in the am so they're here to stay for a few weeks. I also have aversions to chicken, oatmeal, black beans, and meatballs which makes life a little difficult some days. Let's just say we'll have some interesting meals for the next few weeks.

Click on the meal name for a recipe. We use MealBoard which stores all your recipes, generates your shopping list, organizes by aisle in the grocery store and gives you a total price for your list. I round my prices up, so it's usually a little lower. You can find out more about MealBoard here.
