4PM Coffee: Essential Snack Edition

It's 4PM and time for Coffee Thoughts again! 

Today we're looking at essential snacks that should be in your bag or backpack at all times in case you get hungry.

For me, that happens a lot. I don't really eat breakfast, and lunches are usually very light and inexpensive.

I carry a good number of snacks in my bag to carry me over during the work day, and that helps the day to go much better than sitting, trying to work and going hungry.

Here's a list of the snacks that I have in my bag currently:

Lunch: Saturday Noodle Edition

I left my comfort zone today and made Udon and Chicken pan fried noodles.

It was a bit easier than I thought. I just cooked the Udon in boiling water, then moved it to a pan with a bit of oil and fried it up along with chicken, soy sauce and garlic.

Always having foods that go a long way in your house is a good thing.

It doesn't matter whether you're rich or poor, having cheap food that goes a long way really can help anyone's budget when it comes to meal times with the family. Trust me, I have six in my house, and know how much the kids can eat!

What you really want to focus on when you're looking for cheap food are the items that give you a lot of product but for the lowest cost. In this day and age of fast everything, going back to the basics can be a bit challenging.

If you're a penny pincher and savvy spender like I am, you know as well as I do that the grocery bill is always one of the bigger monthly bills... But what if I told you that we have friends, Susan and Lester, that have honed the art to the point where they can make meals for less than $3 per person that really fill you up?
