We had our dinner guests (the first in our new house!) and considering the dietary limitations, it worked out well. It was just salad but I came up with some tasty and filling ingredients. I washed and cut everything and kept them in separate bowls and we took what we wanted buffet-style. Fortunately, our guest was able to eat everything!
This is what I “made” and what it cost from our monthly food budget:
chicken breasts x 4 $0.00 (from last month’s budget, kept in the freezer for the occasion)
red onion $1.76
green onions $1.14
goat cheese $3.99
bottled water $1.58
carbonated water $2.98
And there was salad leftover for lunch the next day for Thomas and I. We had a bottle of red wine that I received as a gift ages ago and our guests brought a yummy apple and blueberry cobbler, which we had with tea and coffee. I wish I had taken pictures but that may have been hard to explain/slightly crazy.
It was a nice evening and I’m pretending the pile of dishes does not exist.
