MOUTH WATERING STIR FRY MEAL
Are you hungry for a quick, easy, delicious and inexpensive dinner? I picked up a package of thin sliced top round for stir fry, it was a little over a pound and cost $6.37. I added an onion, a pepper from our garden and some baby carrots. That’s all the ingredients needed for my mouth-watering stir fry meal.
I added some olive oil to my wok and while it was heating up, I sliced the onion, pepper and carrots. Once cut and the oil was heating, I added the vegetables. I recently purchased a flexible cutting board and it’s great when pouring the vegetables, no worry about them dropping off the edges of a flat board. With the handle, I can hold it securely and just fold up the side and pour. I like how easy it is to use this Flexible Cutting Board
plus it’s quick and easy to clean then hang on the handle to store for next time.
Back to the stirring, the vegetables have been added and stirred together, then I added the meat. But remember I told you it cost $6.37 for the package? Well, I didn’t even use the entire package, I have enough left to make another meal someday for hubby when I make by salmon dinner. Now the vegetables and steak are tossed together with seasoning while cooking on high heat. It not only looks good, it smells delicious!
The entire meal from preparation to serving dinner took less than 20 minutes and cost maybe $6.00 total for two meals.
BREAKFAST FOR DINNER BONUS
As I bonus, I have another simple yet delicious meal. This was dinner Sunday when I didn’t have time to make breakfast. I started out with 6 eggs, 4 potatoes (I planned to use 5 but only needed 4), 1 onion and 1 pepper, again from our garden and sausage links.
This was started similar to my stir fry dinner, I cut the onion and pepper into pieces while I microwaved the potatoes for 6 minutes. They won’t be totally cooked but partly cooked and I cut in pieces then finish cooking them with the vegetables. While that’s cooking, I fried up the sausage and mixed up the eggs. Since I love cheese, I added peppers, onions and cheese to eggs. So now I have the potatoes and sausage just about ready, the eggs finishing up and the kitchen smelling delicious.
Doesn’t this look delicious? I don’t have a total cost on this meal but I’m sure it’s less than $5.00 for two meals.
LEAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!
What a way to end the day with a banana split and since Sunday (the day I’m writing this blog) was National Ice Cream Day, I thought it was very fitting.
I cut up a banana for the bottom of the dish, added ice cream, topped with hot fudge, caramel topping, my homemade raspberry sauce I originally made for my salmon meal the other day and smothered all that with whipped topping and cherries. What a way to end the day!
