Are you on a budget when it comes to groceries for your family? Well I am. I am constantly looking for ways to provide good nutritious food for my family of 6 (my uncle eats dinner with us), without going over my alloted amount of grocery money.
I recently started planning out my meals for the month so that I would know what I would need and that has HELPED a ton and helped save us money during the month. I scower the internet and blogs (I have several in the sidebar that I "stalk" for new recipes) looking for new recipes to help my "bean & rice" budget feel more like a "steak & lobster" budget.
I found $5 dinners yesterday while browsing Angie's blog (THANK YOU ANGIE). It has lots of recipes (mostly serving 4 but easily adapted for a larger family) for $5 or less. Many of which I can't wait to try!
Kara's blog has some wonderful recipes that I can't wait to try out too, like her outback chicken & her recipe for Macaroni Grill Bread. And that's just to name a few, she has loads of easy recipes that I am going to incorporate into my March menu.
There are a few more that I frequent quite regularly like The Brighton Kitchen which has some yummy recipes like The fudge pudding cake.
I can't wait to find out what I save this month trying out some of the yummy recipes I have found so far. Thanks again Angie for sharing the $5 meal blog. It is going to really help my budget stretch just a little bit farther.
