Home Grown Dinner

This post contains affiliate links that help me continue this blog. Thanks for your support!
The benefit of having my own garden and putting up the food that I grow?

1. Fresh eggplant in the dead of winter
2. Enough homemade sauce, canned to last the winter/spring
3. Yummy dinner for cheap!

Homemade Eggplant Parmigiana made from frozen- home grown eggplant. (the cost was the about .08 per seed, and I got about 5 eggplants per plant, so negligible). The sauce is also homemade- again, the cost was for seeds, also negligible. The only thing that I had to buy to contribute to this meal: bread crumbs (1/3 cup) (I'm going to learn how to make my own), mozzarella cheese (1/2 cup), and parmesan cheese (2 TBSP), which are minimal. The final great thing about this meal- it made enough for 2 dinners, and it's baked, not fried so it's a much healthier!

I think this dinner deserves and A+ for cost and taste! It's now one of my go-to meals because it's cheap, easy and yummy!

What are some of your go-to dinner meals?
