    Whether by the week, pay period, or month, meal planning can be one great frugal tool in your money-saving toolbox!

  6. Frugal Recipes, Leftovers, Budget Meals
    I've been cooking meals large enough to equate into leftovers the next day for a month now. While it's great to have, we get bored with some of them to where I'm looking for a variation to the menu without overspending. We do lasanga (but expensive with the cheeses included). We do beef stew...

  8. Food for Kids
    I'm looking for any meal ideas or recipes that could be prepared by a child. DS wants to get more involved in the kitchen. The cooking will be supervised, but we would like DS to be able to do the majority of prep himself, so anything that involves a lot of chopping or cutting would be out...

    With all the extra food costs associated with canning and preserving for winter, I'd like to make this fall as cheap as possible. Some ideas on what I can make? I am aware I have a full larder compared to most of you. But I often have very simple and quick meals consisting of starch...

  12. Kitchen Basics
    I'm looking to cut back on the amount of meat we eat but I'm kind of drawing a blank. I can't even bring myself to purchase ground beef any more. I'm not sure how my family is going to take the adjustment though, so I'm hoping to find some things that they'll be into. Thanks in advance!

    Don't forget as summer time draws near that many school provide (and a few other places) serve free breakfast and lunch. Where I live they have done this for several years. The first time I heard of it was when my oldest was a baby, I was teaching at the time. Here the breakfast in continental...

    I need help with meal planning! My grandkids are coming to visit this weekend. I don't have any meat in the the house, and I don't want to buy any (it's been over a year since I bought meat, and I've now used up all that I had on hand a year ago). Here are the few foods my very picky 10 year...

    I have two cookbooks that have these, one from Mohawk Power and another old Hotpoint electric range cookbook. It occurred to me that although I have these, I next to never make any of the recipes in them, and I should organize the recipes that I do make to do this...and discovered that I really...
  17. Meal planning
    So, Dh follows the no meat on Fridays rule of Lent. However, I don't have a lot of meatless dishes in my repertoire. I think I'll have a mutiny if I do mac and cheese every Friday. Any EASY meatless ideas for me? Ease is key, as I've got a newborn. Also, no seafood...allergies. I'd...
  18. Kitchen Basics
    Stopped in my local Whole Foods grocery store, which I rarely do as it's pricier than most of the stores in my area. But I'm glad I did. I found that they've started selling one-pot dishes that are pretty much good for being a meal. Not sure if they sell any others like it but I just saw...

    So, my schedule is crazier than usual (leaving the house at 7am and getting home at about 11 pm) so I'm looking to do some freeze ahead meals for hubby to take care of. He did well with making meatloaf this week....granted, I put together the meat mixture and all he had to do was add cheese and...
