I love WinCo. But that’s not news, right? I love that they love me, too.
Ask me any day of the week, and I’ll tell you, I’m in love with their Bulk Bins. You can buy as much, or as little, as you need. Are you shopping for one basic recipe, or hosting a large dinner party? They’ve got you covered.
From pastas and starches to snacks and candies, buying in bulk is crazy economical.

Now that we’re in October and starting the “Busy Season”, this month’s recipes will center on those quick and easy, good for you meals that my family loves. All are five ingredients or less, making them inexpensive as well.
This first recipe came about years ago when my car was in the shop, I had few groceries in the shop, and a hungry daughter (not to mention self). I had to make do with what I had. It turned out so well, it became a favorite.
What I love about this, is that it’s so … read the rest. . .
