Meal planning and home-cooked dinners can save you lots of pesos if you plot out your meals carefully. We did the work for you and did just that-including an estimated cost breakdown for your grocery shopping and ingredients!

 

 

These dinner recipes are super simple-all you need is a frying pan to prepare all your meal viands, or ulam. It'll take you less than an hour (from start to finish) to prepare all of these dishes, too! If anything needs to be marinated, simply prepare the meat and marinades the day before. They'll be ready for cooking by the time you come home from work.
