The Best Carne Asada Recipe

This recipe has moved to my new site…

My 2-Week Dinner Menu for under $50

My husband & I are on a really tight budget which means simple home-cooked meals every night. This week chicken, spareribs, and Italian sausage are on sale, so all of our meals will be based with these ingredients.  There are not many veggies on sale so I will be sticking with the cheapest including broccoli, corn, and lettuce. These meals will feed 3-4 people.

Day 1- Shredded Chicken Burritos + Chips & Salsa
**Make double and freeze the extra for a meal next week. Instead of buying lime & cilantro use canned tomatoes that contain both.

Day 2- Chicken Helper (boxed) + Broccoli + Garlic Bread

Day 3- Spinach & Tomato Stuffed Chicken + Salad

Day 4- Pork Spareribs + Corn on the Cob

Day 5- Pulled Chicken Sandwiches + Frozen Veggies

Magazine Recipe Book

Magazine Recipe Book

We all love to receive magazines, but after you read them they usually end up laying around. I love this idea to create your own recipe book with all of your cooking magazines.

I receive Everyday with Rachael Ray & Taste of Home Magazines. As I read them, I tear out all my favorite recipes. The leftover magazine goes directly into the trash and the tore out recipes go into my custom recipe book!

Orange Eggs Recipe

In celebration of World Egg Day I thought I would share my husband’s favorite egg recipe with you…

Orange Eggs!  It is a simple yet delicious recipe.  All you do is add a little orange juice to scrambled eggs. It gives normally bland eggs a sweet taste.  I hope you give it a try!
