Most of us can relate to eating on the cheap. When your bills keep piling up and your bank balance is approaching broke, food tends to be the first budget item on the chopping block. Even when the economy isn’t in the slumps, eating well should always be affordable. This week’s recap of our Table Talk recipe contest features stories from the “Best on a Budget” category, which celebrates meals that cost $5 or less per serving.
First place winner Jenny Sherman’s Minnesota Fish Tacos were inspired by her experience fishing in the wilderness and her passion for eating locally. “Every ingredient in this recipe was caught or gathered, handmade or farmed locally in Minnesota; the two main ingredients grow there wild and were sustainably harvested.”
