As a member of Pssst... and General Mills, occasionally, I receive special coupons, products, and updates about new products.
“The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook” by Erin Chase, a MyBlogSpark member and creator of 5DollarDinners.com, prepared her first $5 dinner in August 2008.
She turned it into a three-fold mission:
■ To make dinner for my family every night for $5 or less!
■ To prepare healthy meals using natural and wholesome ingredients!
■ To encourage and inspire others to do the same!
In addition to 200 economical recipes each with a Frugal Fact, she offers suggestions for making the most of grocery shopping and couponing. Her tips on meal planning include sample menus and ideas for using leftovers. Her recipes feed a family of four and list the approximate cost of the ingredients. Here’s a recipe Erin suggests to get you started.
