Jump In The Pool Tortellini Soup
In a few short months it will almost be a whole year since Chris and I have lived together. We still have a lot of adjusting to do in this apartment but we have been getting things down pretty good.
One thing I haven’t quite got down so well is our grocery budget. We each put the same amount of money away each month and go food shopping with it about every 2 weeks. The past few months I shaved about $40 off the budget and that used to be ok, but as we are eating more meals in . . . We find ourselves running out of food quick!
From now on, I’ll be adding that extra $40 back in but until then, we gotta figure out what to eat with what we have already in the house. I love these challenges because I hate waste and I love being creative.
This is what I came up with for tonights dinner which will probably last for a lunch or two or maybe another dinner. I wouldn’t even call it a recipe since I literally threw all the ingredients in my crockpot . . . Set it and forget it!
JUMP IN THE POOL TORTELLINI SOUP
Here’s what I had to work with . . . .
I cooked the onion and garlic a bit to draw out the raw flavor.
The tortellini are a bit mushy, but the soup tastes really good! Not bad for scraping the kitchen 😉
Were you ever short on money and created a meal from the few things left you had? What was it?
