I’ve made dinner for you tonight – BBQ Meatball Subs with Spinach Mayo.
You’ll love them. As much as I cook (and pretty much live at the grocery store), sometimes it’s nice to have some simple dinners that I can count on that don’t require a lot of ingredients – in other words – budget friendly meals.
As you all know, I would love to be a full time blogger, but I’m an registered nurse and we need the benefits (and money). We have two teenagers; one about to go to college and one in high school.
At the same time, I’m not a big fan of boring or plain. I need variety and spice in my foodie life! Although I love to spend forever in the kitchen playing and prepping (yes, I love chopping; it’s therapeutic for me), sometimes after a long day of work I need something a little easier.
I’ve teamed up with #cbias and Kraft to create a meal under $20.00. Yes, under $20.00. I find myself going to the grocery store literally almost daily because I have a husband and two teenagers that have appetites that cannot be reigned in. I got my ingredients at Wal-Mart, which made it very possible, which included Kraft Ranch Dressing (it was $1.98!). I have definitely realized that if I’m going to save money on my grocery bill, Wal-Mart is where I have to go.
Most of us experience how tight it is financially around the 1st and 15th of every month. Every time I go to Wal-Mart (I’m so glad we finally have one in Helena!), I’m reminded of how much more I spend going to other stores.
These are my BBQ Ranch Meatball Subs. I added an unexpected element; spinach mayo. I know you’re wondering if this is good or not – but let me just tell you – it works! The bread with the spinach mayo alone was luscious. I probably ate an entire roll using it as a dip while making these. Couldn’t help it.
This dinner cost me literally $19 and some change. For that we got 6 meatballs subs with an iceberg and tomato salad with Ranch dressing for six.
My husband and I are always complaining about how much food costs. Our grocery bill is absolutely ridiculous. I know we have two teenagers, but still – it’s insane!! This little project was eye opening – We spent under $20.00 and got an entire dinner for all of us.
It was fantabulous.
