5 Meals, 10 Ingredients

Pin It
Since I know some of you will be hitting the grocery store bright and early this Saturday morning, I encourage you to see this video of Mark Bittman on the Today Show. You should also check out my post The Well Stocked Pantry, the first post I ever published on this blog. It will help you understand why having a few staple ingredients around can help you economize and put together a quick meal or a week's menu . Think of it as you would your wardrobe... if you have a few good basic pieces like a black suit or a killer white blouse, all you have to do is go out and buy new accessories for a brand new look! Additionally, if you check out the specials on the store's website or flyer in the newspaper before you go to the store, you will save a lot of money and who knows, you might even come out with a few new recipes. Remember, if you are on a budget, now is the time to transfer your shopping skills and creative spirit from the mall to the grocery store.

Note: If you are in a pinch for a Father's Day Menu, check out our post published last week!
