So meatless Monday made me decide that a few more theme’s would be kind of fun so here is a try with Thrifty Thursday. Recipe’s that will be affordable and still tasty. I will aim for $5 meals but will always post the projected price and servings with the recipe.
I found this one here and it is very tasty.
