We are also observing the tradition of not eating meat on Fridays (ok we’re vegan so again not an issue). Tonight we had vegan “chicken” nuggets and a nice big salad.
The total meal was:
4 tomatoes (I used 2): 2.59
small tub of sliced mushrooms: 1.79
carrots (1 lb): 1.29
This is a bit pricey compared to our normal meals because I splurged and bought the nuggets.
Last night I made Shepherd’s Pie using:
frozen green beans
It was AWESOME!!
Dried beans are really economical and can be used to create yummy meals.
I make my own refried beans (using pinto or black beans) and you can even make your own tortillas using maize flour (also inexpensive).
Hope this helps.
