Good Friday Meal-Lightly Fried Fish with Garlic,Lemon Butter On A Bed of Rice & Lentils- Cost $ 1.93 each

You are bustling getting everything sorted for Easter Dinner that you forget about Good Friday and the meatless meal you may have to tackle. Although our Easter Dinner in the Crock pot will be quick and simple and stay with-in budget we needed something special for Good Friday. What is Good Friday?  Good Friday is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians reflecting on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death. The Holiday is observed the Friday preceding Easter Sunday and may coincide with the Jewish Passover. You can read the entire story here. Being that the wife is Catholic they have a day of fasting on Friday meaning they eat smaller meals and no meat. I thought it would be a great idea to come up with a recipe for this Good Friday to share with the family. Even if you are not celebrating this dish is remarkable in flavour and can be eaten any time of day breakfast, lunch and dinner any time of the year. This recipe may be used with any white fish, here I chose Pollock smothered with a garlic lemon butter sauce on Basmati Rice with Red Lentils. This fish would taste great paired with a nice bottle of White Wine Gewürztraminers from Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Mr.CBB’s Sloppy Joe~ So Good, So Easy, So Frugal $0.95 each

I was going to BBQ some burgers last night but time out with the boys at the gym brought me back a bit late to turn out my burger recipe. What I do is change it up by turning my lean beef into Mr. CBB’s famous Sloppy Joe’s. The wife and our mates just love these and I also make them when I’m in a pinch just like tonight. The recipe makes 8 Sloppy Joe’s and trust me they will be gone especially if you have hungry mates like I did last night! The cost to make this recipe is  around $0.95 each Sloppy Joe and I was on the top end with prices. This could even be much more frugal than it seems! So here we go…… Total Time start to finish under 30 minutes! Tools Large frying pan Spatula Ingredients 8 fresh Hamburger Buns or any Round Bun 1 can of Tomato paste 6 ounces 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 teaspoon paprika 2 table spoons white distilled vinegar 1 table spoon Worcestershire Sauce 1 teaspoon of dry mustard 1 teaspoon dry oregano 1 teaspoon of dry basil 1/2 cup of  Tomato Ketchup 3/4 cup of water 2 yellow onions […]

Stuff this! Mr.CBB’s Green Stuffed Peppers on Mash! $2 each Meal

My wife and I started making these Stuffed green peppers after watching her mother in the kitchen. Her mom is a great cook but one who never measures.. you know- a little of this, a little of that. Ay! What happens to her recipes, they taste great. I have no idea how some cooks work their magic with no recipe but it works. Although we would love to stir up some magic in the kitchen we needed a recipe. So after watching and learning we took to our own test kitchen and proceeded to cook. You can use any colour pepper to make this easy stuffed pepper recipe, we chose green. After many trials our green stuffed peppers are now perfected! They stand tall on a nice slathering of mashed potatoes, surrounded by a sweet basil, garlic marinara sauce and topped with mozzarella and Parmigianno Reggiano. I can assure you there won’t be any left when you are done making this recipe. For the vegetarians if you want to make this a meatless stuffed pepper you can simply omit the meat and continue on with the rest of the menu as it can be just as hearty. I would likely add in an extra […]
