Being on a budget isn't always fun, but $10 Dinners shows you it doesn't have to bore your taste buds. This book shares how a family of four can eat extraordinary meals for $10 or less without sacrificing flavor or variety. Recipes are simple and written with the busy weeknight cook in mind. In chapter one, Secrets of a Supermarket Tightwad, Julie Grimes shares the budget secrets that make it all happen, including how to stock your pantry, how eating seasonally can save major bucks on the grocery bill, how budget-smart splurges can take an average dish to the next level, and how and where to find the best deals. Readers will find more than 100 dishes, such as Sautéed Chicken with Sage Browned Butter, Korean-Style Beef Tacos, Summer Veggie Pizza, Maple-Mustard Chicken Thighs, Penne Rigate with Spicy Sausage and Zucchini, and Braised Pork with Slow-Cooked Collards, Grits, and Tomato Gravy. Julie Grimes covers all the bases, from seafood, poultry, and meatless main dishes to pizza, pastas, soups, sandwiches and sides. She also shares how to entertain on a budget. Throw a fantastic dinner party for $25 or host Thanksgiving for under $50—never let a limited budget keep you from entertaining in style.
