Foodie Frugal Friday #3


Welcome to Foodie Frugal Friday #3! Fridays are my "day off" from my blog. Every Friday I will feature some recipes from across the web and blog-land.

The last vestiges of winter are hanging on here in Ohio with the occasional  tantalizing tease of  Spring. Wednesday we had a high of 68°F and the forecast for the weekend  is a wintry mix...boo!

So let's wrap up in our nubbiest sweaters, snuggle in with a fuzzy fleece blanket and settle in for some comfort food.

How about some yummy crock pot chicken and cornbread dumpling? This tasty option breaks down to $1.88 per serving. Cheaper if you use coupons, sub veggies from your garden and make the dumplings from scratch.

What about some savory red beans and rice? This is a nice meatless option, only  $0.87 per serving but guaranteed to fill you up! You can almost hear the jazz with every bite.

Beef Stuffed Cabbage Rolls was actually one of my favorite dishes my mom would cook when I was a kid. You can serve with rise or butter noodles. Either way it hits the spot!

How about a little "Q" to warm things up? I don't know about you but  I sure do love me some BBQ. I take it anyway I can get it beef, chicken or pork. It's alllll good! Here is a nice southern crock pot  version of Cola and Peach glazed chops. These look so good I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard. Serve this with a side of mac n-cheese and whoo-weee I am in heaven!!

Nothing screams comfort to me like chocolate. Ice cream, pudding, hot chocolate, candy bar or cake.  Here is an super fast and easy Chocolate Cherry Dump cake.  I am quite sure there wouldn't be any leftovers of this. Yum!

And to finish everything off how about nice tall glass of Sweet Tea. You can never go wrong with sweet tea regardless of the season. And I won't look if you wanna add a splash or two of some bourbon to ramp up your internal thermostat.
