Did you know that the #1 thing you can do to save money on food is to PLAN?  Just winging it or eating out a lot can really bust your budget.  So start planning now!


Here are some tools mentioned in the video:

Roasted Potatoes & Vegetables with Becca

1 large Onion

1 Large Green Bell Pepper

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp Oil

Preheat oven to 425* F.  Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.

Thoroughly wash potatoes, onion, and bell pepper with a vegetable brush under running water.

Cut red potatoes into 1 inch cubes and place in a large bowl.

Peel and cut onion into larger slices. Remove seeds from bell pepper and slice into large slice and add to onion and potatoes.  Add spices.

Layer on a sheet pan. Place in preheated oven for 20 - 30 minutes

or until red potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork.

Occasionally flip potatoes and vegetables.
