Hello sweet friends. Welcome to another edition of Shopping Around the World. This month we are highlighting things that we cook in this hot weather outside. So without further ado, here is mom – take it away mom!
What we have this month is a meal that keeps on giving – LOL. Friday morning before work, I put a beef roast in the oven. I got a nice beef roast (around 3 pounds) at the market for around $14.00. That night when I got home, I cut all of the meat up and put it aside. In the meantime, I took a head of lettuce ($0.98 head) and chopped it all up placing it in a huge bowl. On this date, I didn’t add anything extra – just the salad mix so far. I then poured in some 1000 Island salad dressing into the lettuce (probably 1/3 bottle for the entire salad $0.34). I tossed and coated all of the salad with the dressing. At this time, you can add a little more if you need it. Just make sure your lettuce is coated.
I then used some big plates and put some salad into the plates. Next up, the beef that I had previously sliced was put on top of the salad. Just as a garnish, I took some barbeque sauce I had on hand and drizzled it over the beef. There you go – dinner is served. The entire meal cost $15.32 and we had salads for two all weekend in this heat.
