We haven't been out to eat, except picking up a burger, last Friday in months. I just cook at home. A few times before Christmas, we had steak, baked potatoes, and salads at home. We bought a boneless ribeye for $3.99 per pound and Les cut it into steaks. It was so much less expensive than taking a family of four to even the least expensive steak restaurants. This week, they're on sale for $2.99 per pound but we really don't have the money to buy them.....grr!
Instead of buying pizza out or buying frozen pizzas, I've been making them out of whole wheat english muffins. I can find those marked down to .79 for a package of 8. I make a simple pizza sauce using tomato paste and tomato sauce with onions, garlic, and oregano. We use whatever is in the house for toppings and I grate a block of mozzarella cheese that I buy at Aldi for 1.99 or we use other cheese I have here. They are healthier than the ones we buy and taste really good, too.
