$5 Dinner Challenge

No recipe tonight.

I’ve got this little thing called a garage sale this weekend.  And well, it just seems to be taking over my life. For the moment anyways.

So. I’ll leave you with Mr. Linky :)

Is your monthly menu planner still available to print? The only one I can find is the weekly one. I’ve searched in several places.

Thanks for hosting, Erin!

Hi Erin! My Pineapple Pork Chops can be very frugal when I get the pork on sale (I usually buy a boneless pork loin for $1.79/lb and slice it into “chops”). Then I use brown rice and frozen green beans I’ve gotten free or close to it with coupons. It’s healthy AND cheap–a great combo!

Yum!!! I’ll keep my eye out for a good pork chop price…it’s been awhile since we’ve had a good sale. And that’s a smart way to get delicious chops too!

Thanks for sharing!

Tell me about your yard sale. I will be hosting one soon (actually, 2 weekends’ worth). Will you have any hints or ideas for me? (or the rest of your readers??)

I posted Beef Chimichangas. Very economical. And can be made healthy with extra lean ground beef or ground turkey, low fat sour cream, and whole wheat tortillas.

Would love to hear about your Garage Sale too! I was just debating moments ago whether I should have one! LOL!! :) It takes a lot of effort, and I never make the loads of $$$ like some people do!

Yepp–I have the garage sale blues, too. They are exhausting–but here’s to making a lot of money!

Thanks for letting us link up! I love seeing that other mothers who are real like me. We don’t always have a recipe, and can make dinner every night. Sometimes my kids favorite dinners are cereal, milk, & bananas… and the clean up is a cinch too!

Good luck with the Yard Sale! We have a ton of stuff to get rid of, but I think I may just donate it.
