Dinner: Sunday, January 4

Salmon Cakes on a bed of Sauteed Spinach
Cumin-Dill Oven Fries with Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise)
Total Cost: $5.25

The salmon cakes were made with canned salmon using the recipe on the can, and the sauteed spinach was made with boxed frozen spinach. Now before you turn up your nose at this, try this: defrost the spinach in the microwave and squeeze a lot of the liquid. Saute a wee bit of garlic with some soy sauce and sugar. Add the spinach and heat gently. To class up the salmon cakes, add anything green--green onions, parsley, basil.

The Cumin-Dill Oven Fries with Aioli are a blissful retreat from traditional fast food garbage. Simply slice potatoes (any variety) pour a little oil to coat them, shake on some cumin, dill and salt. Then turn the broiler on high. Go for 15 minutes, then turn potatoes. Go another 15 minutes or so.

We classed it up with garlic mayonnaise, which was delicious with the salmon cakes as well as the oven fries.

What are you eating for dinner tonight--and how much does it cost?
