the occassional expensive entree
Do you think you
can't afford the occasional chicken breasts or even lobster?
Think again. With careful planning many families can enjoy
some of these pleasures of an occasional basis. So how do
you do that? It's fairly easy.
Plan your meals
with items such as rice, pasta, or even a hot baked dinner
rolls. these items are very filling. And when you are serving
a meal with some of these filling staples, you can easily
splurge on one or two chicken breasts you divide among the
family for a treat, or a single lobster the entire family
The trick is to
have your family feel full, even though they might have only
had two bites of lobster. and you'll save yourself from hearing
"Mom, isn't there anymore of that?"
An easy way to
do this is by serving hot rolls to start, followed by soup
or salad. The soup can even be a $.49 can of Campbell's soup,
but the goal is to start filling up your family's stomachs.
that way when the main course arrives, the plate will be filled
with your fillers (ie. rice or pasta) along with the special
treat that makes up the entrée.
