February 4 "The $5 Dollar Dinner Mom" Slow Cooker Meatballs
While The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook is not made for children it is great to use for little helpers because the recipes are easy to prepare. Audrey and I love to make Slow Cooker Meatballs with Spaghetti. Pasta is an easy sell with little ones and I have found it easier to add nutritious ingredients to the sauce without changing taste much. With meatballs you can serve the meat on the side for children with aversions to food touching. Another advantage to this recipe is that it cooks in the slow cooker while you are running errands or cleaning the kitchen. For those looking for healthy yet budget friendly recipes this is the cookbook for you. We love it so much we bought The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook also. It is quickly becoming just as beloved.
