Eat at Home Challenge April 2014: Day 22

Dinner Plate, Knife and Fork on linnen cloth

Last July we ran a 30 day Eat at Home Challenge and for my family it was AMAZING.  We realized how just a little planning &  a few minutes can save us a LOT of money!

For the entire month of April my family will be dining at home & I will be sharing ways to make cooking dinner at home easier, prove how much money is wasted by ordering pizza, burgers, coffee and more!  You might be amazed at how much is being spent when you eat out instead of at home!

I will also be sharing a recipe for each day of the month that coordinates with the April Menu Plan!April Menu


Day 22: Go Cold

Many times when we think of dinner- we think of a “hot meal”.  Dinner doesn’t have to be hot!  Sometimes my family has cereal or fruit salad for dinner.  Or sandwiches and chips.   In the heat of summer, we don’t have to make the house even hotter to fill our bellies.

What about a home-made deli tray of cheese, crackers and meat with a side of strawberries?

What is your favorite cold dinner?
