Ok! Who has seen all the Panda Express deals they keep putting out??? This week it is 4 Bowls for $20! Great deal if you were eating there already, but not if you weren’t planning on it. I have overspent on groceries and going out already this month so -back to creativity.
My kids love Orange Chicken- so at Grocery Outlet I bought this 2 lb. Bag for $3.99. I had this Jasmine Minute Rice on hand ($1.36 at Walmart) so for $6.71 0r $1.67 per person they had Orange Chicken and Rice Bowls (or plates) They enjoyed it too!!!
We didn’t have to leave the house or spend extra money!! I have been trying to duplicate Fast Food items this week to keep them from asking for them and so far they have liked what we tried!!
We also made Beefy Frito Burritos just like Taco Bell- but better!
Ground Beef, Fritos, Shredded Cheese and Tortillas!
I spent $8 and was able to make 10 burritos that were VERY filled! The kids thought it was fun to make their own Taco Bell food and some added LOTS of Fritos so they forgot all about asking to drive-thru for Taco Bell this week now!!!
Also- I bought this Taco Seasoned meat already and it was perfect!!!
