      Last week was a very expensive week, but oh so good and a well deserved treat! Well, here we are with a little bit of this left in the freezer, a little bit of that left in the fridge, a pantry full of ideas, and $50 to get me through another week. This is what I came up with…and yes, you can make a complete balanced meal with fried rice and pasta salads for dinner. Are those dinner meals as tasty as a steak and baked potato? NO! Are they nourishing and satisfying? YES! I challenge all to consider that they only have $50 to come up with three meals and snacks for a week!
