The $10 Food Day #2: 4 recipes (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack) all for less than $10. Repin to save!

I’m super excited to share my second $10 Food Day post with you! If you’re new to my blog or to this series, here’s what you can expect:

  • Four recipes (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack)
  • Enough to feed 4 people
  • Total cost is less than $10 – for the entire day!

This particular menu costs just $8.71 – for all four recipes. Last time I came in at $7.53. Keeping that in mind, there is some wiggle room for you to supplement your menu with fresh fruit, vegetables, or beverages.

    Great ideas.  I love the popcorn snack in one of your other $10 day posts and the banana nutella ice cream looks amazing.  I make a lot of soups too.  They are so good and filling and so inexpensive when you consider how many servings you get.  Also, love my slow cooker and make lots of soup in it.

      Thanks Faith! You’re totally right about the soup. Just a few varieties of veggies can yield a huge pot of soup.
