4 Meals, 4 People, 25 Bucks

With social distancing and #StayAtHome orders continuing to remain in place for the foreseeable future, coming up with new dishes to feed your family on a budget can be tough. Blogger Kita Roberts of Girl Carnivore and Pass The Sushi has created four recipes made with Idaho® potatoes that your family will love and collectively cost only 25 dollars. 

Kita remembers,"It’s amazing to me how far my parents could stretch a buck. I can remember my dad working long hours and coming home playing Knex with me and fishing on the weekends. As an adult, I can look back and solidly appreciate just how hard it must have been to keep everything together all of the time. A young father, a little girl, and working incredibly long hours to make it all come together. The thing is, I never knew any different. It amazes me that there was always enough; I never wanted. There was always food in the fridge, and they made sure there was always a hot meal on the table."

"I sat, talking about my roots with the fine people of the Idaho Potato Commission and we all got a little inspired," Kita continues. "What more simple product is there on the shelf than the potato? The potato is a staple around so many meals and recipes, an overlooked ever-present side to menu plans across the country. I was challenged to put it to the test, or rather, my money where my mouth is, and see just how far I could stretch my hard-earned dollars. With a goal of $25, I went to the market to create four family meals. The results were delicious and (pretty shockingly) healthy. I made meatless enchiladas, a soup, epic pizza baked potatoes, and a classic sheet pan chicken."
