I ran across this recipe in Real Simple. I don’t make many of the recipes in the magazine because they often have more expensive ingredients and they would cost more than $5 for the meal…but when I ran across this recipe …I knew it could be done for under $5…
…and I think there is just enough leftover that the Hubs and I don’t have to fight over it for tomorrow’s lunch! Yes, I would fight him for this one…it was that good!
1 tablespoon olive oil ($.10)
1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced ($.15)
