Cheap Date: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy Monday everyone,

To start off the week of our cheap date recipes, I thought chocolate covered strawberries was a great and inexpensive way to impress your date.  The ingredients you need are simple and this meal is easy to make for dessert.

Things you will need:

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Chocolate chips
  • A little milk
  • A package of angel food cake

Put the chocolate chips in a sauce pan and melt, add a little bit of milk to make it creamier. Carefully dip strawberries in the melted chocolate and place them on a plate with wax paper under it. Put the berries in the refrigerator (feel free to eat excess chocolate) for a few hours. When time to eat, slice up a little bit of the angel food cake, plate the berries around it and enjoy with that special someone

Baked: Makeshift Mac and Cheese

Hey everyone,

I was feeling macaroni and cheese for dinner tonight but I did not want to eat a boxed macaroni and cheese with the powdered cheese, if you can even call that cheese… So I decided to make my own makeshift mac and cheese from some pasta noodles, cheese and a few other ingredients.  It was quite cheesy and easy.  Hope you like it.

What you need:

  • 2 cups raw pasta noodles
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • shredded mozzarella
  • bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 lb Velveeta cheese
  1. Boil water and put the raw pasta noodles into the water and leave them in there until they are 3/4 cooked.  Drain the water from the pasta and add the Velveeta cheese until it completely melts into the noodles.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  3. Put the pasta in an oven safe dish and mix in the chopped onions and milk.  Top the mac and cheese with the mozerella cheese and bread crumbs and put the dish in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese on top has melted.
  4. Enjoy

-Ryan
