Today we went to Army daughter's house for lunch. She has discovered Costco! Lunch was spinach ravioli's on top of a spinach salad, which was spinach, tomatoes on the vine (what can I say, she still refuses home grown stuff), and feta cheese. It was good but also filling. Needless to say, when dinner rolled around tonight I wasn't hungry. I can't pull that one on the grand kids...sorry, I'm full so no dinner tonight...
Unless you are one of those people who needs to have meat every single night, and I am not one of those people, then a dinner like this is not only delicious but also good for your wallet. On Friday I made a huge amount of homemade bread. Since Bug-out renters were eating over for two days, bread does wonders for keeping people full. We still had over half a loaf left. The chickens are still laying more eggs than we can keep up with. Eggs and bread equals French toast!
I used four eggs, added a little cinnamon sugar, and beat them well. I didn't add milk because I didn't need to extend the eggs. If I needed more eggs I would have just used more eggs. I sliced the bread into 1/2 inch thick slices. Each piece was soaked well. The egg didn't soak all the way into the center but about 1/4 way in. I had some butter that's been sitting in the butter bell for the last week. I melted about a teaspoon and spread it on the griddle with my silicone brush. Then I cooked the bread on both sides until it was a golden brown.
The next door neighbors gave the grand kids a jar of pomegranate jelly that they made yesterday. I put a spoon of the jelly on toast. That with a glass of chocolate Quik powdered milk and dinner was served. It was delicious. Cost? Probably less than a dollar total for the three of us.
