Slow Food's $5 Challenge


Slow Food is challenging you to a $5 dinner challenge. They want you to dine on $5 or less on September 17. They want you to get together with your family, friends and neighbors for a slow food meal that costs no more than $5 per person. In a world where cheap fast food and prepackaged value meals are so readily available, they want people to know that a good and cheap slow cooked homemade meal is possible too. If your not the best cook, this is a perfect time to learn one good recipe. And if your an experienced cook, this is a great time to teach others your skills.
