MyPlate on My Budget, EASY DINNER

Cheap and Easy

Cheap and Easy

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a MyPlate on My Budget post.  For readers new to my blog, that was an experiment I did in March with help from food blogger Rose McAvoy.  My goal was to figure out if I could follow the USDA Choose My Plate requirements, but also stick to the USDA Cost of Food at Home “Thrifty” budget.  Here were the results.

Anyhow, I’ve been thinking about MyPlate on My Budget a lot these days because of the prospective changes to SNAP benefits in our country, and how they might effect families.

Today when I was at Trader Joes, the food demo was a dinner I thought was cheap, easy, and something kids would like.  The downside, was that it’ll only serve three, and contains gluten (which means I can’t eat it).

Anyhow, I thought I’d pin this to the MyPlate on My Budget board for future reference:

  • 1 bag Ggnocci with sauce – $2.99
  • 1 bag frozen peas – $1.29
  • left over cheese (I’m figuring $1s worth)

Total $5. 28 for three people. 

* Includes 5 servings of veggies (peas)!

* Only $1.76 per person!
