Tonight's Frugal Dinner, Monday 4/5

A leftover night! Again, we dug in without thought of taking a picture. Picture this: Sweet and Tangy ham and rice. Nothing fancy, to be sure, but our family enjoyed it!

Here's the cost break down:

Spiral sliced ham, the third leftover meal from last week Sunday's dinner (not yesterday, last week) -- around $4 or so -- when you're on your fourth meal from any source, you shouldn't have to count the cost at all, should you? :)

mustard -- about $.03 -- just a tablespoon or two from a bottle purchased at Target for around $.84

butter -- $.25

brown sugar -- $.30 -- REALLY just guessing there; I used the last 2 or 3 tablespoonsful out of a bag we bought ages ago. Way before we started couponing, so I probably spent too much for it. Anyway, I used 2 or 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, bought at full price.

rice -- around $.33 -- bought at Publix on sale.

Veggies -- $.05 -- bought at Publix on sale with store coupons stacked with manufacturer coupons

Total for this frugal and tasty dinner -- less than $5!


A tentative plan for tomorrow night: something with leftover roast beef.
