Inexpensive Meal Ideas That Aren't All Italian or Mexican!
Since we (like most Americans) are on a strict food budget (between $70-$90 a week for a family of 5), I decided to compile a cookbook of some of our go-to favorites which includes, but isn't limited to, Italian and Mexican dishes. We shop at Aldi's, where boneless, skinless chicken is sold for $2.19/lb, ground turkey is $1.69/lb and you can pick up a 2 lb bag of swai fillets (fish) for $3.99. I do frequently substitute frozen or canned items for fresh to pinch a few pennies, and I try to use low-fat or light ingredients whenever possible to save on my waistline. I hope you can find a few recipes that you family can enjoy!
