I am $8 over this week, but I feel like the recipes are worth it. There is a great mixture of hot comfort food and cool spring time fresh food. I found a new combination of flavors (mint and olives! who knew?) this week and also discovered a new cheese that tastes like bacon (not gouda, but fontina–it’s cheaper!). Have a great week and happy cooking and eating!

Sorry, went a little bit over the normal rate of $50 this week. It is because two of the recipes use meat. I couldn’t resist, they are so delicious. Another little twist to this week is that I found most of my recipes online. I usually make up my own recipes or use one of my books, but I wanted a change of pace this week so I decided to find some new recipe sites and showcase them this week. Thanks to all you food bloggers out there for providing the world with awesome meal ideas. Here are a few that I found tasty.

Vegetarian Broccoli Souffle
Vegetarian Egg and Potato Skillet
Lemon Chicken
Tortilla Soup
Vegetarian Cream of Spinach Pasta

This week’s recipes is heavy on the canned goods.  I’m a fan of using canned and frozen goods as often as possible.  That means less trips to the grocery store for me and more money in my pocket at the end of the week!

I went 8 dollars over this week, but I think the recipes are worth it! We have a great variety of ethnic dishes, 4 of the recipes are vegetarian, and one of them is vegan! My husband contributed to the cause with his very first shot at Chana Masala (I say bravo and encore!–hoping he makes it again soon.) Enjoy this week and let me know what you think!

I am so excited because this week I managed to squeeze 5 recipes (4 servings each) out of $40.

I love spinach, so you will see that there are two recipes this week where that is the main ingredient. I am also continuing my quest to get to know quinoa a bit better so I can make it a part of my staple food storage. And, my husband helped out this week letting me borrow his Spinach Omelette Recipe. I through in a couple of casserole type dishes because it was cold and rainy this past week–needed some comfort food.

Enjoy!

Recipes for this week:

Quinoa and Tuna Salad
Spinach Omelette with Hash Browns
