I had a tiny bit of organic cooked chicken leftover last night from another meal, but not enough to make a meal for our whole family.   To save some money and extend that chicken, I mixed it with a bit of organic tofu to make chicken tacos.   My family didn’t even notice the difference until I told them.   In fact, my picky kids at two tacos.   They loved that I set out all the toppings, so they got to make their own.   Letting them make their own, always helps us avoid those fun fights at the table about finishing (or at least starting) your meal.

I’m going to use the rest of that tofu later this week.   I like tofu, but I hate the texture.   I always need to mask it, so I don’t feel it.   Any great tofu recipe recommendations?

Cost of Organic Chicken: $2.69/lb. (on sale)
Cost of Organic Tofu: $1.59 per package

Dinners

  • Chicken & Tofu Tacos with Rice & Steamed Veggies
  • Hot Dogs w/ Peas and Strawberries
  • Tomato & Cucumber Chicken w/ Rolls, Cheesy Noodles, & Steamed Veggies
  • Vegetable Stir-Fry w/ Vegetable Fried Rice &   Spring Rolls
  • Tofu Lasagna w/ Garlic Bread & Side Salad
  • Sloppy Joes w/ Baked Potatoes & Stuffed Mushrooms
  • Salad Night

I’m a nut who forgot about Easter Dinner.   We’ll be spending that at our in-laws, so looks like I planned an extra meal for next week!

This week we’re still checking out Green B.E.A.N. Delivery, which delivers organic, locally grown, and other high-quality vegetables to your home.   This week we’ll be enjoying:

  • (6) Organic Pink Lady Apples
  • (1) Organic Asparagus Bunch
  • (1) Organic   Broccolette Bunch
  • (1) Organic Red Chard Greens Bunch
  • (1) Sustainably Grown Red Leaf Lettuce
  • (1) Organic White Button Mushrooms (10 oz.)
  • (1) Organic Yellow Onion
  • (6) Organic Navel Oranges
  • (1) Organic Klamath Pearl Potatoes (24 oz.)
  • (2) Organic Strawberries (16 oz.)
  • (1) Organic Grape Tomatoes (1 pt.)

Last week, the quality of the vegetables and fruits was amazing.   I’d never find that quality at a grocery store near my home.   Two weeks later and the few vegetables we have left over are still good.   It was the biggest asparagus I’d ever seen and even my vegetable-hating husband mentioned that it was out-of-this-world delicious!   We’re waiting after our deliver tomorrow to see if we’ll continue and I’ll let you know.

Can we stay frugal and fit the expense of organic and locally grown high-quality vegetables into our budget?   Is it worth it?   We are seriously considering it.
