    Default meatless dinners

    We are doing more meatless meals this year for our health and our budget Here's my plan: Meatless Monday- Tuna Tuesday- Fish Friday- Sunday pasta Day. On the other days I fill in with what's on sale and healthy I've been adding spinach to everything. We have it cooked and raw. I use it in salads with fruit, nuts and beans. We have been loving this I also started making sourdough bread, yum

    Tonight I made cheese raviolis (store brand frozen) with a veggie-licious sauce. I sauteed a box of thawed chopped spinach with olive oil, minced garlic and onion. Then I added diced canned tomatoes and about 2 cups of a spagetti sauce and a can of cannelli beans. It turned out great!
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without...

    Building emergency fund to $5K, then snowballing credit card debts in balance order. Following those with medical bills in collections, a vehicle loan and then student loans..plans subject to change as I learn more and life happens

    We had mac & cheese and Brussel sprouts the other night and tonight is Vegetable Soup. I am using broth made from boiling down some chicken bones but there won't be any pieces of meat in the soup.

    I've mentioned it a few places but my DH is doing a veggie shake mean green cleanse, going on day 24 right now. Before that we were eating meatless quite a bit. With it being the dead of winter vegs n fruits are at a premium so I've been eating as cheaply as possible to compensate. This site has been a lifesaver. Crockpot is my fave way to cook and this has both a veg and an economy section.

    MakeADollarHollar, I was so intrigued by your buffalo burgers I did search. I don't know if these are it, but they sure look good.
