Okay, we have all been there. It’s a day or two before hubby gets paid and you need to eat from your pantry…how do you plan a meal? I look around and see what might be a good “base” and then what I can do to “spice it up!” This is why I love this recipe! It combines two of my families favorites: baked potatoes and VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® dip!
I go about my grocery shopping in the same way. I plan a main dish, then the add ons. It makes it much easier to shop on a budget. Some things are almost always low cost. The add ons are what tend to add up for me. So I try to think of things that I can stretch into more then one meal. I also plan my grocery shopping by the schedule we have for the upcoming week. If we have a lot going on, I need to buy quick and easy meal ideas. If we have a few days of nothing, I am more willing to purchase items that will require more prep or longer cook times.
Check out this recipe…it’s simple, yet very filling and sure to become a family favorite.
