Orzo for Lunch

Lunch today... Beefy Orzo.
Today there are 7 children & 2 adults for lunch. Total- $6.89

2 pkgs orzo (on sale, .75/ea) $1.50
1 lb ground beef ($3.50)
4 oz grated Parmesan cheese $1.49
1 cup whole milk (raw or at least non homogenized) .40
pepper & sea salt to taste
1 tsp each garlic & onion powder

Prepare orzo, drain, and set aside. Brown beef. Add garlic, onion, salt & pepper. Add grated Parmesan cheese & milk. Cook until melted and hot. Add drained, cooked, orzo to pan and combine well. Continue heating until hot through. Serve with side salad and carrot sticks (+ $2.00).

**To make Gluten Free, replace the orzo with brown rice.**

Organic salad cost savings tip- I buy a 3lb tub of organic salad mix at Costco for $3.99. This lasts 4-5 days. We have already planted our salad greens in the garden beds and also have some growing indoors as well.
