Today was another busy Monday, following a very tiring and busy weekend. That’s the norm around here, but I just wasn’t in the mood to run to the grocery store after working all day and then picking up Lola from school, so I decided to just go straight home to rummage through the pantry to see what I could whip up in a jif. We weren’t home over the weekend, so the pickings were slim since I hadn’t gone shopping, but you know what? I think it worked out quite nicely. We ended up having breakfast for dinner and I loved it! It’s not the first time, but some people (like my bff, Judylyn) tell me that it’s so weird, but I just don’t get it; why is that weird? You’re weird if you don’t love breakfast for dinner lol! Anyway, this meal was deliciously affordable and I think you’ll be surprised at how much so.
We grubbed on Portuguese sausage, hash-browns, scrambled eggs and sourdough toast. I’d order this any time of the day, if the menu presented it to me. Granted, my house now smells like linguica, which is incredibly potent and hard to clear from the air, but it was so worth it and I’m already working on the air quality control, so we’re good here. The rest of my crew must have enjoyed it since they’ve all eaten themselves into a food coma; yep, they’re all sleeping now. Literally every single one of them. Kind of nice because here I am just blogging away in peace, drinking my evening coffee, (yes, I know) which I shouldn’t have done because now I’ll be up until the ID Channel line-up repeats itself and at which point I MUST shut it all down because I mean, that’s like all I watch and don’t really need to see them twice. That’s so bad, but I’m obsessed. I know there are memes out there for murder mystery obsessed gals like me (right here, y’all!). On a side note, I thought about taking courses on forensic science, but I’m incredibly impatient and since you can’t really solve murders in 60 minutes, I decided that it’s probably not for me.
Back to the topic at hand…this meal was extremely budget friendly and was ready in less than 20 minutes; that’s faster than what your daily cardio session should be. If I were to break it down, rounding to the nearest digit, I’d say that it cost roughly $15 to feed this family of four: Portuguese sausage $5, hash-browns $3, scrambled eggs $3, toast $2 and orange juice $2. That’s literally amazing and beyond affordable for today’s busy, budget friendly moms. So, the next time you’re in a scramble to get food on the table, why not consider breakfast for dinner? I might shoot for pancakes the next go round…I saw that box staring me dead in the face during tonight’s hunt.
Cheers to budget friendly breakfast for dinner.
