The more often you eat at your Owasso apartments instead of going out, the more often you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much money you have in your bank account. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but for some reason, people still love ordering takeout food and delaying trips to the grocery store. Is this because people like spending money, or because most people don’t like the taste of their own cooking? If you think it’s the latter, you’ll find this blog helpful.
Do you know how much money you could save if you didn’t go out to eat every day at work? Most people spend over $50 per week on lunch, and that’s just not necessary. You don’t have to go into full meal-prep mode to save money on lunch — you just have to learn how to make simple meals taste awesome. We’re here to help you do just that. Next time you spend $15 on food and drinks at lunch, think about what else you’d rather spend that money on.
This week’s blog is all about improving simple meals, and you can use the tips below to make your next lunch. Check out the tips below, and be sure to share this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments for rent in Owasso!
Improving Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
Peanut butter is delicious and there’s really no way to improve it. Jelly, however, could use some work. Next time you make a pb&j sandwich, try using real fruit with your jelly. If you're using grape jelly, add some grapes, if you’re using strawberry jelly, add fresh strawberries. You get the point. Real fruit will make your store-bought jelly taste like it’s fresh off the farm.
That’s one way to improve a pb&j sandwich. The other way isn’t quite as healthy, but it sure tastes good. For a little extra crunch, add Honey Nut Cheerios to your sandwich. If you want something a little healthier, add some almonds to the mix. Also, don’t forget to toast your bread. When it comes to pb&js, the more crunch the better.
Improving Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Everyone has their own opinions on how to make the best grilled cheese, but we think it all comes down to how you prepare the bread. Obviously, you need to butter the bread before you toast it, but have you ever considered adding mayonnaise to the grilled side of the bread? Give it a shot next time you’re gearing up to make a grilled cheese.
Improving Macaroni and Cheese
Boxed macaroni and cheese is about as easy to make as toast, but if you put a little extra effort in, you’ll be rewarded with an amazing meal. You don’t have to buy fancy noodles to make awesome macaroni and cheese, but you should consider buying some fancy cheese. The powdered cheese in the box is fine, but you can make your meal taste amazing if add some high-end cheese to the pot. We also recommend buying some diced jalapenos and throwing those in there.
