What if I told you that you could make a meal for your family for under $2, would you believe me?
Part of keeping our food budget in check while continuing to eat satisfying, healthy meals is our willingness to eat "found food". But don't worry, we're not talking about dumpster diving. Just being aware that there may be a creative, delicious use for that onion peel you are about to toss.
Yes, that onion peel. Put it in a bag in your freezer. Toss in carrot peels, trimmings and celery greens and ends for good measure. Let it hang out until you buy a chicken...
So there you have it. A simple meal of bread and soup for six for around $2.
