Stretching Your Dollar Further

I just thought I would update you on our Marleyspoons dinner.

It was the Beef enchiladas, and with a vegetarian and one that only eats chicken breast, it was going to prove tricky.

Here is the run down

I bought three dinners, using a discount voucher of $30, the three meals, for two adults and two kids, came to $84. So, $28 per meal. But, I am very good at stretching meals and changing them up for a family of 8.

Here’s what came with the pack

Here is a list of what I added

4 whole grain large wraps cut into quarters

One tin of kidney beans

One tin of tomatoes

Grated cheese

2 shallots

2 cloves of garlic

So, it feels 8 of us with actual leftovers. Though not much.

I ended up making a vegetarian lot of it too….and it was all so very tasty and got a big tick of approval from the kids.

Here’s what is left, except the vegetarian one has lots…it went!

So, yep, I think good value.

I hope I can stretch out the next two meals like this one.

How do you make your dollar go further when you are cooking dinner?

Until next time

Lots of it
