There’s something comforting about getting to this time of day and knowing there’s something simple planned for supper. I’m all for cooking from scratch, but let’s face it: some days you just need something quick and good that doesn’t take a whole lot of time and effort (and of course, money!).
Tonight’s menu at our house: Rosetto ravioli (on sale at Giant Eagle thru tomorrow for $3.50, $1/2 Printable), Prego Sauce (from the stockpile, but bought on sale with a coupon, salad (BOGO this week at Giant Eagle), and the rest of the homemade bread I made over the weekend. 15 minutes start to finish, a reasonably well-rounded meal, and one that should make everyone pretty happy.
Last week we tried one of the Velveeta Cheesy Skillets ($2 this week at GE, 50¢/1 Facebook Printable), and the Chicken Broccoli one was a hit, although I added a microwave bag of broccoli to boost the nutrition. For a buck, I’d probably get it again to use on busy days.
How about you, fellow Sisters and Misters? Do you have a go-to easy meal for busy weeknights? Share your favorites in the comments, and I’ll compile a list with coupon matchups for a future Cooking with Coupons.
