Recipe Roundup

Here are the recipes I made this week for my dinners.  All these fed a family of four plus some for lunches the next day.  I do not typically buy any lunch items.  I typically use leftovers for lunch.

Monday:  Chicken Fajitas

This is a pretty self explanatory supper.  I marinate four chicken breasts in a fajita seasoning most of the day.  I then grill the chicken.  I chop 1 onion, 1 green pepper, and fry in some olive oil on the stove.  I then heat up a few 10 inch tortillas of your choice.  I then cut up the chicken and place some on a tortilla and put some onions and peppers on the tortilla.  Easy and frugal.  Just how I like it.

Tuesday:  Here was a change of plans

I made hamburgers on the grill and french fries.  It was nice out and I had extra hamburger this week, so we wanted to grill.

Wednesday:  Tacos

1 lb. ground beef
packet of taco seasoning

various toppings
taco shells

This is a meal I never make the same.  I brown 1 lb. ground beef in a skillet and add taco seasoning and 3/4 cup water.  Sometimes, I do make my own taco seasoning.  I will post a list of these later.  Toppings are usually:  Olives, cheese, onion, sour cream and salsa.  I use whatever I have on hand.

Thursday: Corned beef and cabbage

In honor of St. Patrick's day, I made corned beef and cabbage.  This turned into a very cheap meal.  The cabbage was .19/ lb.  and the corned beef was $1.49/ lb.  Not too bad. I made mashed potatoes and carrots to go with this along with the St. Patrick's Day Pie.  This was a wonderful meal, that even the kids ate.

Friday:  Fish Sandwiches

I am making breaded fish fillets and putting them on a bun.  I am topping with homemade tartar sauce.  We will also be having potato salad with this. 

Tartar Sauce

1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. dill pickle relish
1/4 tsp. dill pickle juice

Mix together and serve.

This is only pennies to make and tastes just as good as the sauces you can buy in the grocery store.

  1. I'm so excited to see a recipe for tarter sauce! We like to have fish often, but I hate always having to have tarter sauce on hand. I feel like I've already learned so much from you, THANK YOU!!!
