It CAN Be Done!
(takes a moment to load)
This was a little too close for comfort, but the exciting news is that today is the day I am going to submit my entry for the Whole Foods Budget Recipe Challenge. I made the dishes last week and wanted to have another go at it so that I could get the correct measurements, good photos and prices nailed down before clicking the Send link.
The Whole Foods Budget Challenge Meal
So I woke up this morning, checked mail, watched CNN for a while to see the latest videos and info on Gustav and headed into the kitchen. My entry actually works quite well for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, so by the time I was done putting it together this morning, I sat down to a fabulous brunch which, for UNDER $4.00, included an entrée, a salad and dessert. Ok, so it was just $0.02 shy of $4.00, but I can still state that it was under. The challenge does not require that entrants submit a meal, just a dish, but I am never complacent, so I challenged myself to see if I could produce a wonderful meal for $4.00 or less and achieved that goal. So, no matter what happens with the challenge, I have come out a winner with a year ’round meal that I am sure to put together often and I have my mom to thank for the suggestions and guidance as we tossed around ideas in the past week.
Read on for details of the recipes with photos so that you too can make this DEElicious meal for yourselves, friends and family.
