Onion Foccacia with Smoked Salmon

July 9, 2009

I just realized how many chicken recipes there are posted on this blog. I swear we eat more variety of produce, but frankly, chicken is cheap, healthy, quick and damn tasty if you season it right. I would love to eat flank steak, lamb chops and lobster tails every day if I could, but those are not budget friendly on my wallet unfortunately. Actually, I recently hit up my local Ralphs and saw a bunch of beef round, chuck and sirloin for cheap! Don’t be afraid to pick up those “Manager’s Special” deals at your market. It doesn’t mean they’re bad or else they wouldn’t be allowed to sell it, but you should use them up quickly. I scored a few packages of sirloin for less than $5, what a steal! You can always freeze meats if you aren’t sure when you’re going to use them. Freezing meat is better than letting the meat go to waste. Anyways, that’s my spiel on eating budget friendly. Many people relate the word ‘healthy’ with Whole foods or organics and immediately think expensive, but really, it’s all about shopping around for the best deal and lots of local supermarkets these days stock fresh lean meat and produce. Whole Foods is defintely not friendly on my wallet, thus, I “try” to only go there once a month (ha!) for “specialty items”. Whatever that means, it’s really an excuse for me to go there and raid their salad bar and wander around the huge store for hours wishing I had all the money in the world to buy the store. But really, who needs raw goat cheese for $7/pack?
