  7. $5 Meal Challenge

    Ok guys, Sorry I've been busy lately with other content, but I managed to do a $5 Challenge Meal this week. Went to the store over the weekend, and couldn't believe my eyes. I found some good pancetta for $1.97 Instantly I figured I must try to make a spaghetti amatriciana. Spaghetti - $0.34 Two Roma tomatoes - $0.57 One Yellow Onion - $0.50 Pancetta - $1.97 Grated Parmesan $1.00 TOTAL : $4.48 Got very very lucky. I cut our pancetta into little squares Saute it on the skillet with chopped onion Two awesome Roma tomatoes, also chopped into small squares Saute all of those for 10-15 minutes on medium heat Al dente spaghetti with little bit of pasta water goes in, and One Dollar Parmesan goes on It actually turned out pretty tasty guys though I wish the pancetta was a little bit smokier. Here is a video of the whole process Next challenge coming is $5 Whole Foods lol its possible

I managed to make a tasty beefstroganoff with all this Video of this whole process is right here Feel free to join me guys, photos and videos are welcome. I'll be making this a regular thing. So at least 1 Challenge a week with a video guaranteed !!!
  10. $5 Meal Challenge

    Hey guys, So after going through many topics here, and enjoying every single one of them, I want to add something unique here I would like to do an interesting event for you all. Or maybe even a regular thing. Since we are all big fans of food, and a lot of us love to cook, how about a small challenge ? $5 Meal Challenge Basically, all you have is Five Dollars to spend on all the ingredients. Its okay to go over just a little bit, but no more than $0.50 cents Any store, any market, any place that legally sells food counts. I figured 4 main basic ingredients like Salt, Pepper, Oil and Vinegar - are free. Since you cant buy very little of them. The meal has to be prepared or cooked. You cant just buy a frozen pepperoni pizza for $3 and call it a day. I would love to see your creations It wont be easy, but I think this will be super fun. Anyone can join and post here in this topic. Photos, and videos of course would be even better.
