Do you do that whole chicken tutorial? I have a few in my freezer and I wanted to hear that before I made it. Thanks!

Everything on your menu looks delicious! Can you share the recipe for lasagna soup? And I’ve never thought to make honey mustard chicken salad ! That sounds great!

Yum…I’m excited to see a recipe for Saturday’s sandwiches. Anything with honey mustard is good to me! :)

I was wondering what your plans were for Easter dinner. Do you stick to your $5 limit, or do you relax it for the holiday?


Erin April 6, 2009 at 2:47 pm

LOL! No $5 limit for holidays! Did Thanksgiving for 6 for $35 and did not cook for Christmas. We are going to my MIL’s for Easter :)

Hi–I love your blog, wanted to let you know of a great $5 lasagna recipe:
2 cans or jars spaghetti sauce
6 no boil lasagna noodles
3 c. mozzarella cheese
2 c. cottage cheese
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
2 eggs
salt, pepper to taste
1 box frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained well)
Mix together cottage and parmesan cheeses, eggs, salt & pepper, and spinach. Pour a bit of sauce at bottom of pan, layer 3 noodles, half of cottage cheese mixture, half of mozzarella cheese, and a layer of sauce. Repeat. Bake covered with foil at 350 1 hr. 15 min. Let stand 10 minutes.

This is really good even if you don’t “like” spinach.
