Food prices are going up. 2022 looks to be the year that inflation really kicks in. With everything we’ve been through in the last few years, the last thing that we need as a nation is to see the price of chicken double!
These are quick and easy meals- less than thirty minutes from stove to table. They are not complicated and will assume you have some things in your pantry and refrigerator like flour, simple spices, and ketchup.
Fruits and vegetables are not cheap. So if you can buy a packet of cucumber seeds and some dirt for under a few dollars, you can have fresh cucumbers and pickles. The same goes for tomatoes and squash. All fairly inexpensive to purchase.
The cheapest foods may not be the healthiest foods but they are a great way to stretch the healthiest a little further. Items like pasta and rice, beans, and lentils are cheap. Canned vegetables compared to fresh are a less expensive option. Good choice for a broke dinner.
