Weekend reads: $5 dinner advice
- With a chill in the air in many places but plenty of summer vegetables still at the farmers markets, this End of Summer Harvest Soup from the $5 Dinner blog (where you’ll find tons of other budget-friendly recipes) looks just about perfect.
- Here’s a recipe I started making earlier this year that my whole family likes that uses tilapia (you can use any inexpensive, mild white fish), Grilled Tilapia with Garlic-Dijon Aioli. I posted the recipes on my South Jersey Locavore blog the first time I grilled it, and I’ve made this dish several times since.
- My friend Lisa from Jersey Girl Cooks posted a One Pot Gnocchi with Turkey Bolognese on her blog this week – budget-friendly, hearty and easy clean up! Add a salad and you’ve got an inexpensive meal.
- If your $5 dinner is just for you and another special someone, Mint.com has 7 Romantic Meals for Under $10.
