Our $2.57 lunch - pros and cons.
Still working on that list of 15 $2.00 meals. Today's lunch was scrambled eggs and toast. Here's the breakdown.
Organic eggs $3.49 per dozen - scrambled 6 so 1.74 in eggs.
Added 1/3 cup of organic milk. Milk costs .37 per cup, so .12 for a 1/3 cup
Whole wheat toast - .125 per slice so .50 in toast
Jelly - Fruit only - $3.49 for the jar, we used a tablespoon -Greg passed on jelly so .21 there.
Lunch costs $2.57.
Pros - fairly healthy, getting close to the $2.00 range.
Cons - I just saw Greg making himself a mammoth bowl of cottage cheese and pineapple chunks - may need to up the portion sizes for the big guy;-).
Anyone out there with great, easy, healthy, kid friendly two dollar range vegetarian meals???
Off to a two hour birthday party Kirk was invited to at an outdoor park on this chilly, overcast, wet Saturday.....can you guess I lost a coin toss to Greg?;-)
