I stopped by the grocery store that’s on my way home from work – their 50% meat mark down section was empty! On to Plan B – I started looking around, and the meat prices were awful! I ended up finding this, at $7.04:
A 4 ounce serving comes in at 170 calories, 8 fat, 1 carb, 0 fiber and 21 grams of protein – it was so tender! I actually have about 1/3 of it leftover and plan on making steak and eggs for breakfast, so for $7, I got one dinner and a breakfast – not too bad!
I already had zucchini and potatos at home, so those were my side dishes – I ended up not even adding any cheese to the zucchini pasta – just sauteed it in 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil and cracked pepper and salt.
My plate: 4 ounces of steak, 2 tablespoons of beef gravy, 3/4 cup mashed potatoes, zucchini pasta, 1 slice of my homemade bread with a pat of butter:
So not too bad considering at 5:00 I had no idea what was going to be for dinner! Hopefully with these new magazines I got in the mail I’ll be able to figure out a menu for the rest of the week!
Right now I am cooking a spaghetti squash and I have quinoa in my rice maker – I am making a vegetable lasagna for lunch tomorrow – turns out no one else in my family will eat it!
