If your kids are anything like mine, eating at a restaurant is not the relaxing and exciting experience it once was. And let’s face it, if you have kids your disposable income isn’t the same as it once was either. So eating at home has become a big event in our house on the weekends. We love to put the kids to bed a little early and cook dinner a little late, just so we can enjoy catching up over a meal without hearing “Mom can I…” every two minutes. Eating in doesn’t have to be boring, and it definitely doesn’t have to blow your budget. I made this entire meal for two for around $12.00.
