Meal Idea Monday: Crockpot Country Ribs with Mashed Potatoes

22 Aug

Crockpot country ribs with mashed potatoes… now if that doesn’t sound good, I don’t know what does!

I just love the website that this meal idea is from, 5 Dollar Dinners. If you haven’t checked it out yet… you just have to! There are endless meal ideas, and the best part- budget friendly. The creator of the site, Erin, has challenged herself to make meals that cost $5 or less. She’s super down to earth, smart, and funny too!

I have to say that when I’m making a meal for my friend or family member, I’m hoping to accomplish 2 things. The first would be that it is a delcious meal they remember. The second is that I am hoping to stay within a certain budget since I still have to feed my own family too.

5 Dollar Dinners accomplishes both those things for us. Delicous, budget friendly recipes. Thank you Erin, for creating such a wonderful resource for us to turn to when bringing meals to those we love!
