Eating Like A King On A Shoestring Budget – Part 5


HOW TO BEST UTILIZE WEEKLY SPECIALS - Part 5 of 5 in series – Eating Like A King On A Shoestring Budget

Sooooo, here we are on part 5, but first… a quick recap last week’s CityLine show and my blog series Eating Like a King On A Shoestring Budget. Click for Part 1

My next series will include you on a little journey I‘m about to dive into! Moving from a 3000 sq ft home to a 580 sq ft home! Sometimes I walk into the space and wonder, “Where on earth will I put everything?” I will share my thoughts, frustrations, grocery bills, food storage solutions… you name it! It’s all in a pursuit to understand and embrace the concept “Living with Less”!

What I love about this recipe is it’s easy to pull off if you forgot to take something out of the freezer! Easy on the budget? That’s an understatement! Kids as well as adults looooove this dinner. You can replace the tuna with chicken if you prefer, but if you are using solid white tuna in water -no one would ever know the difference! My family love the soft and gooey on the inside and the nice crispy edges of cheezy yumminess!
