We've discovered a totally frugal, totally yummy, totally easy, totally fun, totally customizable camping meal:
You know how you forget about things? Well, we had forgotten about canned biscuits. We enjoyed those suckers so much, we had to go buy some more. We also bought some toppings to go with them.
For $2.14, we got 4 ten packs of whomp biscuits. Then we bought: Pineapple preserves (if you've never tried this, RUN to the nearest grocery store. Oh my...),grape jelly, strawberry jelly, honey, syrup, and butter. We spent about $9 on the other items, but all that stuff we'll use in other meals as well. For our family of 4, 2 packs of biscuits works out great. 5 biscuits is perfect for each of us. We topped and customized them as we desired- honey, butter & syrup, jelly, cheese, just plain butter... the possibilities are endless. I figure we might have used 75 cents worth of toppings... maybe. 2 packs of biscuits was $1.07, so we had a fun, filling, fantastic, and frugal meal for under two bucks!
