This week we have a full 7 days to experiment with the flavor I’ve chosen. In this case, I bought a ten pound bag of Russet potatoes for $3.94. The bag had 18 potatoes in it, which equals out to 22 cents per potatoes. Of course, you can always buy smaller bags. However, a good way to save money is to buy in bulk, assuming you have the storage space and will use the entirety of what you buy before it expires. Your goal is minimal waste.
Potatoes have long been known to be an affordable cooking option. There are so many possibilities that you really can create a plethora of recipes. Potatoes can be the ultimate comfort food! You can make them rich and on the heavy side, or keep them lighter by roasting or baking. At some point this week, I promise to make my famous mashed potatoes and share my secret as to how I get them so creamy!
Additionally, another topic we will explore later this week is how to utilize leftovers into new recipes. To keep costs low, it’s important that we don’t let food go to waste. If you get tired of eating the same old leftovers after a few days, it’s fun to experiment with how to give new life to the food you’ve already prepared.
We’ll also look at a variety of recipes to incorporate different cuisines into the recipes we create. As always, if you have any special requests, send them my way. I’m glad to experiment and share results.
Tune in this week to see what sorts of a-PEEL-ing meals we create!
