Save Money on Groceries!
Implement these simple tips to start saving on your grocery bill right away!
A few weeks ago I talked about saving money by eating cheaper foods once a week. Using the once-a-week strategy will save money, but I know that some of you are facing more serious financial issues that require more drastic measures.
We can probably all think of a few cheap dishes like boxed macaroni and cheese, and tuna casserole, but life can get pretty boring with a repetitious menu of those staples! Today I’m sharing some of my easiest and least expensive dishes to help you get the dinner on the table for less without resorting to boxes and cans.

everyone probably already knows this one, but I thought I made it up: Chicken corn chowder–
One can of either cream of corn (if you can find it), cream of potato or cream of chicken, plus one can of creamed corn combined and
cooked according to the cans’ instructions, EXCEPT use milk instead of water. I add about 1/4 teaspoon of each of the following:
ground chili pepper, (I also use some mixed chili pepper from N.Mexico)
cumin (just a tiny little bit goes a long way)
1/4 cup of whatever salsa I have on hand-either green or red, and I personally like green better (southern California living requires having some kind on hand at all times)
a handful of shredded jack/cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream if you have it, greek yogurt if you want less fat/calories
Mix it all together and within 10 minutes of gathering everything you need, you have nice cheap “homemade” or at least “home crafted’ corn chowder.
Serves 4 hungry people, with a salad on the side, it may serve more.
I like to eat Chicken and Rice casserole, but I spice it up with garlic on the chicken and chop up onions and green peppers in with the rice.
Really? I am so curious to know which Brazilian food you have tried! When I lived in the USA (Washington State) I loved everything,but I could not forget donuts! Simply delicious! We did not have them here until this year,when I saw them at a shopping center cafeteria. When I get back to see my American mom, that will be the first thing I want to eat!
We were able to go to a Brazilian steak house last year for my birthday with a buy one get one free coupon. It was delicious! I also have a Brazilian friend who has us over for parties sometimes and I don’t know what any of the dishes are called but they are always so good!
I love your recipes,American food is delicious,I always make it here in Brazil!
God bless you!
Thanks Sandra! That is funny because I really love Brazilian food (at least what I have tried so far!). 🙂
