Some Thoughts About Living on $29 a Week for Food – The Simple Dollar

Many of the meals that my family truly enjoys are made out of just a few ingredients.

My family loves spaghetti night. I just boil up a box of spaghetti noodles and, for a sauce, mix together one can of tomato sauce, a few dashes Italian herbs from the pantry, and either an additional can of diced tomatoes or some diced tomatoes from our own garden. Everyone seems to love it.

I’ll make tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches from literally four ingredients combined. I’ll put a big handful of diced tomatoes in a blender along with a quarter cup of heavy cream and blend it, then heat it up. Meanwhile, I’ll put some cheese between two slices of bread and cook that on a sandwich press. Four ingredients for a solid weekend lunch.
