Thrifty Tip: In the Kitchen...

One of the best investments I have made in the kitchen is parsley. Yes, I did just say parsley!

We all know that it is much more cost effective to cook homemade meals from scratch rahter than frozen or restaurant dinners. The only thing is, our homemade meals may not look as appealing. My favorite thing to fancy up a meal is a little sprinkling of dried parsley right before serving. You would be amazed at the difference in appaerance that this little herb makes and at less than $4 for a LARGE bottle it is worth it! Most meals will only need one teaspoon to one tablespoon either sprinkled on top or mixed in (such as rice.)

If you are really adventurous consider growing your own parsley and other herbs to dress up your meals!
