Or would it be meat based tomato sauce? Either way works for me!
Even though I love buying and using fresh and clean ingredients, I don't much care for cooking all that much. I really just care about the eating. That's why I always pick recipes with few ingredients and easy preparation. Luckily there are a bunch of super easy recipes to follow and this is one. I am also very much a "try it and see" cook so I hardly measure anything out when I cook (baking is another story, of course).
I have to give credit to Max Lugavere and his book Genius Foods because although this is not exactly like what he lists in the recipe section of his book, it's based off of that.
Like I said in the previous budget post the food I bought will last my boyfriend and I until the next weekend. It's so simple and delicious. It uses ground beef, tomato sauce, onions, seasoning and I served it with cauliflower rice and sauteed kale and green beans. The ground beef was by far the most expensive ingredient. We used 2 lbs to feed two people for at least 5 days, that's .2 lbs of meat per person. Combining the other ingredients from my grocery list (not including what I already had on hand which was one can tomato sauce, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper) that comes to $2.86 per person per day for 5 days for dinner.
The following groceries will feed my boyfriend and I for six days (minus the TP :D). I am going to make a tomato based ground beef dish served over cauliflower rice with a side of sauteed vegetables that will last for dinner for both of us. He has eggs for breakfast, nothing for lunch. I have coffee for breakfast and chocolate and almonds (already on hand) for snack. You can see that I put a high priority on organic produce and pasture raised or grass-fed meat products when I can. This is something that is important to me so I budget appropriately for it. I'll post my dinner later this week, it's one of my favorites!
