Today was a good frugal food day at the Balentine Cove household. MrBalentine usually doesn’t eat breakfast, but I had scrambled eggs (from a local roadside farm stand) and vegetarian sausage.
For lunch I had leftover black eyed peas with two small slices of homemade bread. MrBalentine took a PB&J sandwich and a banana. I had a couple of granola bars in the mid-afternoon for a snack. I didn’t make the granola bars, but I’m hoping to start making some soon.
Dinner was the highlight of the day. We had stir fry using a couple of things from our own little garden. From the garden we used cherry tomatoes and zucchini. MrBalentine is really good at chopping so he cut up peppers, onion, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower. I added garlic and olive oil to the skillet to go with the rest of the veggies. I prepared a mix of wild rice and quinoa. It’s been sitting in the pantry just waiting for a day like today. It didn’t disappoint! MrBalentine had a fresh from our garden cucumber to finish his meal. So far, so good with our budget challenge.
