True Cost of Supper

Here to prove that eating supper at home rather than going out is cheaper and better and healthier...

Buffalo Shrimp Salad

sorry no picture =( I completely forgot!

Lettuce: $1.79
Celery: $1.69
Croutons: $1.29
Buffalo sauce: $.50 (This is an estimate, we use this stuff like crazy, so I'm only accounting for the portion we used.)
Gouda: $5.49 (A bit of a splurge and I'm including the entire price because even though we will eat what's left, we wouldn't have bought it otherwise.)
Bleu Cheese dressing: $2.00
Shrimp: $6.24 (Buy shrimp that aren't peeled and raw, it doesn't take long to peel them and is a huge $ saver!)
Butter: $.10

Total: $19.10 or $4.78/person DEFINITELY cheaper than eating shrimp at a restaurant!

Recipe
1. Saute shrimp with about 1 Tablespoon of butter.
2. Mix in about 1/2 cup of our favorite buffalo sauce. We love Frank's!
3. Cut up lettuce, Gouda, and celery.  Mix together in a salad bowl.
4. Top with shrimp and some of the sauce still in the pan.
5. Add croutons.
6. Use your favorite salad dressing.  Nothing can beat the taste of buffalo sauce and bleu cheese!

Family Response
