5 fast, easy affordable weeknight dinners: Mom Squad with 3News' Maureen Kyle

Now that school and fall sports are in full swing, getting dinner on the table is a struggle. A local chef shows us how to stretch our dollar and save time.

CLEVELAND — How many of you parents have already thought: “What am I making for dinner tonight?” Between figuring out meals on a budget, and busy after-school schedules, week-night dinner prep is a daily mountain to climb.

In this week's Mom Squad, local chef and caterer Brittany Reilly takes about $100 worth of groceries and stretches it into five dinners (with leftovers). She also shared her best budget secret with us.

“We have an app that shows where some of the local grocery stores are getting rid of boxes of produce -- and that determines what types of veggies,” says Reilly.

“It's called Flashfood. It's usually a couple days before it's going to spoil, they'll put it up and you can buy a box of fruit or veggies for like $5 and it's $30 worth of stuff and it's awesome.”

All of the recipes can be found on her site, Kitchen With Britt. Make sure to watch the entire episode on our streaming service or our WKYC YouTube channel.
