When Fran & I sat down to do the math and saw just how much we were spending on food at the grocery store then factored in the restaurant bills, I was shocked. This year is going to call for a tightening on our financial belt: Christmas is going to be taking place up north, both Fran's brothers are graduating on opposite ends of the country and we would really like to save up to make an overseas trip next summer to Germany. In order to do that we need to plan. Something we are not so hot at.
This past month gave me the gift of time. It led to a cycle of different meals...
Prosciutto & mozarella calzone with homemade tomato sauce. This recipe came via those Pillsbury bread cans and the long ago recommendation of a friend.
The best part of the calzone is that the left over sauce is enough to carry you over for another meal.
I am a huge "breakfast for dinner" fan. Although here it was really breakfast.
Italian loaf of bread. Tomatoes. Mozarella chunks. Olive oil & a sprinkle of red peper flakes, basil and salt: the best grilled cheese ever.
My love for tuna has been reawakened by adding chunks of jalapeno.
Homemade burgers & fries: delicious!
Just a brief sampling of my attempts but do you notice a theme? It's called carbs. I am addicted. So, friends, I ask you to once again help in my cooking endeavor: friendly meals for a lazy cook.
Low maintenance, easy, healthy...my pocketbook (and closet) would truly appreciate it!
