I have not been able to get out to the trailer in the past week due to spending time at work and dealing with some personal things. Long-time reader K.S. sent me an e-mail requesting that I resume some of those “How to Eat Frugally” posts that were the bread and butter (Ha!) of my old blog. I am happy to report that Small House, Big Life does have room under the roof for those kinds of posts, as how to live large on just a little money is right in keeping with the new blog’s theme. So, with all that in mind–here are a couple of one-person frugal and nutritious meals. The first: a recent diner for one: Sautéed cabbage.
1/2 a cabbage with 2 Tablespoons of butter (cost 65 cents + 20 cents)
Plus salt & pepper (10 cents) and 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (57 cents.)
$1.52 of filling deliciousness which I supplemented with 50 cents of cheddar cheese. What can I say? It was a cheese night!
And a recent weekend breakfast.
2 organic eggs-84 cents, 1 tablespoon of butter-10 cents, salt and pepper–10 cents, an orange 40 cents. The baguette was left over from a soup & sandwich lunch at Panera’s.
Eggs over easy, toast with butter, an orange, coffee and cream. A very filling breakfast for < $1.60.
