I’m playing with your 20 meals for $150 from costco posts. I just made this tonight with Steamed Snow Peas on the side [it’s what was handy]. I think for dinner it was probably $8-9. Which is great! Snow peas are pricier [$2.29? ] than green beans, but everything cooked faster than I realized! My husband LOVED this recipe, and the rest of us were fans! I added some 21 seasoning salute from Trader Joes to the seasonings you listed. Really appreciate the time and recipes to go with the savings!
