Random Frugal Homemade Recipes
Here are few quick and easy homemade dishes and desserts we had this week:
Pollo Loco(crazy chicken) An excellent tart and spicy chicken. Recipe for the Mexican Seasoning.
48 ounce bags of boneless skinless chicken can be found inexpensively at Walmart. Ours is $6.98 a bag. Hint: add a little sugar, and use up your orange sauce in this recipe from leftover Chinese takeout. I left out the cilantro, and added about a cup of vinegar to the marinade. Instead of grilling, I cooked them in the marinade on the stove, and used a little of the same in a pot of rice. Serve with salsa(or chopped tomato) and/or homemade guacamole, if you have some avocados.
Barbecue Baked Beans I deleted the green peppers.
Peach Crumble with two bags of frozen peaches Easy! Fresh peaches are better of course.
Classic Blueberry Crisp I used frozen blueberries.
Oatmeal Buttermilk Raisin Muffins includes an easy recipe for the buttermilk. I ran out of butter, so used oil. The children ate these up fast!
