Quick Cheap Meals
On days where I have not had a chance to gather and assemble dinner, we'll order a pizza or some other form of take-out, or we'll eat out (generally at a diner). Regardless of which we choose, it is rarely a healthy meal. That's why I decided to buy a few "cheat" meals that I can make in a pinch.
This week, Tops had DaVinci pasta on sale for a buck. I bought it while I was there so I would have fettuccine noodles. While I normally by Colavita for that price at Price Rite, I was in Tops. This store had the Prego Artisanal Three Cheese Alfredo jars on clearance for $1.39 a piece. I figure I'd be better off spending $2.39 on an unhealthy meal rather than spending $20-$30 on take out or a restaurant meal. I could also take a pack and a jar to camp very easily.
My thought is that these will come to camp with us. I'll probably bring both packages. We like to grill our dinner and these will be an easy dinner on a Saturday night.
I do try to eat healthy and frugally, but there are times we just end up cheating. If that is the case, I am willing to go cheap!
