Dinners under $10

This Beef and Portobello Minestroganoff recipe is another great Fall treat! It is simple to make and there are a few opportunities to use your own homestead ingredients (carrots, onions, chicken broth, tomatoes). Soups are definitely one of my favorite fall dinners. All ingredients for this recipe cost less than $10 (if you buy everything from the store).
