Meal Deal Monday
Okay so I thought I would start something new for Monday's. In addition to all the bargains I thought I would post a bargain meal. I will include how much it cost me and I plan on keeping it lower than $5 for a family of four.
*Here is the recipe for the week-MEXICAN PIZZA- Total Price $2.69 for a family of 4!*
* 1-8 count can of crescent rolls. Price- $0.24 or $1.74. Wal-mart has the 4-ct priced at $1.12 for.I used 2 of my $1 off 1(no longer available but there is a $0.50 off of 2 HERE.
*1/2 package of cream cheese.Price- $.61.( Great value is $1.22 so split that price)
*1/2 lb ground turkey seasoned with taco seasoning-Price- $0.50.( This is not located with the regular hamburger meat. It is packaged like sausage and located in the middle freezer island-1lb for $1-can't beat that!)
*1/2 cup cheddar cheese.Price $0.42. Wal-mart has the great value cheese at $1.68 for 2 cup bag.
*1/2 cup shredded lettuce.Price $0.28 Buy the whole lettuce and just shredd it yourself. Saves alot of money!
*1/2 cup olives.Price $0.64. Buy the whole olives and slice them yourself. Again saves money.
*1/2 cup sour cream-Price $0.61. Wal-Mart's great value brand. I have a hard time finding good coupons for sour cream! Sometimes Daisy has them though so be on the lookout!
1.Unroll crescent roll dough and place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Flatten dough to fit the pan, sealing seams and perforations. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown; cool. In a small bowl, blend cream cheese and sour cream with a wire whisk; spread over crust. Chill 30 minutes.
2.Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown turkey; drain. Spread over cream cheese mixture. Top with olives, cheese and lettuce. Cut into serving-size pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
So your total to feed a family of 4 would be $2.69 or if you didn't have those $1 off then it would be $4.19! You can't feed one person to dinner on that going out!
