Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap - Sack Lunches

A quick round up of our non-shopping meals today....

Breakfast - Chocolate Chip Muffins and sliced apples

Lunch - $1 menu at Wendy's

Dinner - I wanted to make quiche but halfway through realized I had no milk. So I used THIS recipe and sub'd 1/2 cup sour cream whipped with 1/2 cup water for the milk. Added a can of mushrooms, sub'd 1 cup of shredded Parmesan for the cheddar, julienned turkey strips, topped with tomatoes, parsley and more Parmesan and it was the creamiest BEST DARN quiche I've ever made. Yum!

My husband said to me today, "I can't believe how good our food looks for $60 a week!" To which I replied, "Baby, this week is $0!" Woohoo!

So are you ready for our themed recipe swap? Here's where you get to share your best sack lunch ideas and tips for the quickly approaching new school year. I can't wait to see your ideas!

Great theme! I had my Zucchini Bread post ready to go, I would put it in a lunch, I think it would be a nice treat.
Thanks for hosting!

I would love to have a $0 grocery just hasn't happened yet. I love when I'm in the kitchen and have to improvise on my feet. I've made some of my best dishes that way, just like you did. :)
