The Wife taped America's Money Class w/ Suze Orman As I was finishing an exciting meal of Chicken Teriyaki, class was in session. Where ever we are in life most of us can learn how to better manage our self esteem. Suze does not want our money problems to define who we are and be honest with everyone. Especially those closest to us.
This dinner cost me next to nothing. I am allowed to bring home a 6" inch sandwich or salad from work each day. So here is what I did to make an affordable exciting meal for the Wife and I tonight. It started last night when I brought home Sweet Tea, BBQ Lays chips and a Baby spinach salad with a handful of sliced Red onions, sliced Tomatoes, Green bell peppers, 5 oz. of marinated, cooked Teriyaki Chicken, 2 oz. of Teriyaki marinade and Sweet onion sauce. Tonight I repeated every thing switching out the sauces for Grated Parmesan. On the way home at the grocery store I bought a Fresh Pineapple and Grandpa's Apple Strudel bread. Baby carrots were waiting at home in the fridge.
Now for the assembly: First pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Start cooking the rice in boiling Sweet Tea. Slice the Apple strudel bread, lay in a baking dish top with brown sugar and place orange sections on each slice. Finish with Tablespoon of soft margarine and place in oven.
Heat oil in the saute pan. Place two quartered, peeled pineapple rings in the hot oil and brown. Add the sliced Red Onions, Bell peppers, and sliced Baby carrots. Mix in Baby spinach, Diced tomato, Chicken and Teryaki marinade.Crush the BBQ Lays and add in. Place in the oven.
When the rice is satisfactory it is time to plate up. Rice in the bottom of a bowl with grated Parmesan . Chicken and vegetables next and top off the dinner with the heated Apple Strudel Bread. The Modified bread slices received rave reviews from the Wife.
And the only costs I incurred in all this was 6 baby carrots, 1/2 a loaf of Apple strudel bread, Two slices of fresh Pineapple, 8 oz. rice. 4 Tbsp. Brown sugar and margarine. And one sectioned Orange. Fancy dinner on a Budget while listening to Suze Orman's Money Class.
