Tonight's Dinner; Very Healthy and Very Inexpensive Homemade Split Pea Soup
Tonight's dinner was a very inexpensive split pea soup. I didn't add up all the costs on this like I do on some things, but a 16 oz bag of generic split peas at the Mennonite Bulk store that I shop at is .88 lb. I used about a lb of these for this soup. I used pork bones for the meat which are very inexpensive. I added some vegetable juice that I made with older vegetables in my juicer that were getting older and I wanted out of my freezer. I had saved bacon grease from bacon that we had made previously and added that for flavor. I also added a few lentils for variety. This was topped with some cheddar cheese.
I used bread crusts from the $1.00 a loaf bread I bought the other day.
The lemonade was free Country time I got from Walgreen's. I water it down because it's too sweet otherwise and put a few squeezes of real lemon juice in it.
There is enough left over for leftovers for tomorrow night's dinner. Very inexpensive and healthy and tasty too! :)
