Trying to Eat Cheap: Dinner, Day 13

Just revisited our monthly budget and got some rather harsh news, mainly that my plans to increase food spending by a tiny bit to make things more interesting aren't really feasible. We've got to keep this belt as tight as possible, period. So no chevre-stuffed chicken breasts with sundried tomatoes any time soon. But maybe I can do something with chicken thighs and feta that will be almost as good. I'll let you know!

Tonight's dinner was based on the rest of the ground beef that I used for sliders on Day 11. I bought a pound and only used half, so made beef stroganoff with the rest.

Frugality breakdown:
1/2 lb. ground beef: 2.00
1 can cream of mushroom soup: 2.29
1 onion & 2 cloves garlic: .90
1/2 cup sour cream: 1.00
1 lb bag of egg noodles: 2.00
small bunch kale: 1.50
Total: 9.69

Beef stroganoff is such great comfort food. I bet the kale was great with it.
