Tasty Tuesday

Just a short little post today 🙂 

One of the hardest things to change is how you spend money on food. It’s by far cheaper to eat at home than it is to eat out, but who wants to slave over a hot stove all day?! Me, sometimes. Haha. This is one of my quick and easy go to meals for weekends or lunch at home. You can make it fairly inexpensivly, mix it up with add ins, use it as a meal or an entree, and if you are eating alone you’ll have leftovers! 

Here’s what you’ll need

•A box of Mac n cheese and the ingredients to prepare it (I used velveta)

•A can of tuna (you can also use a can of chicken, diced ham, or shred some roasted or rotisserie chicken, or skip meat all together for a vegetarian friendly meal.)

•A veggie to add in (my box boasted it had broccoli in it, but it was 5 dehydrated florets so I just grabbed a handful of spinach from the fridge. You can use frozen, fresh, or canned! It’s up to you)

I steamed my spinach over my pasta in a metal colander, one of my greatest ideas ever! You can use that method for fresh veggies, frozen can be added to your boiling pasta, canned should be added with your meat and cheese so they don’t become over cooked. 

It took about 20 minutes give or take, and I got two big servings out of it! You can make it as inexpensively as a $1 or $2 and get two meals out of it, or use it as an entree and feed 4 people! With the versatility, you can please a wide range of tastes too. 

Hope you enjoyed my short, savory, Tasty Tuesday! Tomorrow is Workin’ Wednesday.
