With the threat of Corvid-19, food, especially fresh, is becoming hard to come by. I’ve heard many people wonder what to fix for dinner. Over the next few weeks. I’ll be posting sample budget-friendly menus with Super Tips!!
Enjoy and Stay Safe!
Chili with hot dogs
No ground beef? See if your local grocery store has ground chicken or turkey.
No buns? Slice the hotdogs and mix it right into the chili.
Last week, we made tacos using ground turkey because there wasn’t any beef in the store. It was a hit! No lettuce, no problem, used canned corn as a topping. It tasted great!
Italian beef (slow cooker meal)
If your store doesn’t have a roast, check if they have boneless/skinless chicken breast.
Kroger had a lot of kielbasa in their coolers, so check if your store has it in stock as well. If you are lucky to find baby potatoes then make Incredible Italian Sausage and Potatoes. The recipe can be found in Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.
Ham and scalloped potatoes
Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches
On a biscuit, on bread, in between two waffles or pancakes, your family is going to love dinner tonight! Since it’s breakfast for supper, make some Magical Cereal Bars! Yup, the recipe is also found in Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.
Make pizza at home.
This can be done with raw dough, on a bagel, on a biscuit, on a pre-made crust. All you need is cheese, sauce, and toppings. Our store had all of it, but supplies were limited. Use what you can find. This is the time to be creative!
If you are able, support your local restaurants. They are hurting as well and would appreciate your visit.

Be a Superhero int he Kitchen is officially out today. Before you buy, check out what ARC’s reviewers have said about this SUPER children’s cookbook!
My daughter went through this book as soon as we received it to bookmark the recipes she wanted to make first. She picked the Colossal Bacon and Bean Sidekick, the Amazing Pudding Parfaits, and Crime Fighter’s Cookie Fluff.
We have made 2 of the 3 recipes now and the ingredient lists are parent and budget-friendly. The ingredients are easy to come by and already had a lot of the ingredients in our cabinets! The instructions were easy to follow for my daughter and she had so much fun making the food. Finally, and most importantly, it was delicious!
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Be a Superhero in the Kitchen for any child that enjoys cooking, or wants to try it out!
It’s so adorable. Each page has a recipe; the ingredients, directions and a superhero tip. There is a menu list in the beginning listing all 20 recipes followed by a page of cooking tips. It’s definitely the cutest cookbook I’ve ever seen. I’m going to have to order a few more for the little chefs I know!
This is a really cute cookbook for kids when your kids want to make something but you don’t have much time. A lot of the recipes call for things already made, such as a tube of biscuits, pre-made pizza crust, etc. The parent wins because they don’t have to spend much time supervising some lavish recipe and the kid wins because they actually feel like they’ve made something useful. A win-win!.
