The Deadline Edition – $5 Dinner Challenge

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 14, 2010

No recipe from me tonight.

My head is buried in the sand on the beaches of Manuscript Deadline.

I have no idea what we’re having for dinner tonight. And I’m OK with that.

Please leave your links for us. After a week of gritting sand between my teeth and dreaming about Tyler crawling around in my editor’s office in the Flatiron Building in New York, I’ll be in need of some recipe inspiration!


Have a Frugal and Healthy Recipe to share?

Post the recipe on your blog and then add the link below. Other guidelines can be found here. To make it easy for other readers to find your recipe, please leave the link that leads directly to your recipe post. Any links that lead to your homepage will be deleted. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to leave your recipe in the comments section!

I keep about 30 menus in NOTES on iPhone. As I read about things in magazines, blogs, and cookbooks, I enter them on iPhone. I make a grocery list and use that to shop by. I am type 2 diabetic so my menus are very light on carbs. Cooking for one means I cook what I like. I am adding home made popsicles to menus; was 100º in ATL today. I want a ZOKU.

Grilled London Broil (top sirloin), lemon risotto, dinner salad, kiwi and banana fruit cup. I have both lemon basil and lemon thyme. I will use that instead of lemon zest. Mmm

Meatballs with tofu noodles, broccoli salad, fresh apricots

Grilled Seafood kebobs, lentil salad, fruit & cheese plate

Orzo, Lentils & Salmon salad, berries with Cool Whip

Tomato sandwich–from my garden, blueberry mini pie

Grilled pork chop, spinach salad, yogurt parfait (fresh apricot freezer jam)
