Cheap Birthday Feast

Today was the extended-family feast to celebrate Noah's ninth birthday. We fed 11 people for dinner (7 adults and 4 kids) for under $15.

The menu:

Spaghetti with meat sauce (made scratch sauce with crushed tomato base, used ground turkey bought for 75% off)

Homemade breadsticks (I used the Refrigerator Dough recipe. I rolled the dough out into a very long rectangle, sliced into thin strips, let them rise, brushed with garlic butter, and baked. These were a HUGE hit!)


Chocolate cupcakes


We still have enough leftovers of everything (except breadsticks!) for our family of four to have again another night, so I guess technically this could have fed 15 people, or $1 a person.

I often find it a challenge to do a kid-birthday menu that pleases the birthday boy *and* all of the adults. This time it was definitely a success!
