Lots of people have asked about where I got my tips for taking family photos. I got tips from lots of different sources and I promise that when I get a little time (possibly tomorrow) I will hunt up links to all of the ones that I used and maybe even add in a couple of my own and post them for you.
For now I'm hoping that you will help me out. I've been looking at our grocery budget for quite some time. Trying to figure out ways to shave some off of my grocery bill. With price of groceries rising every day, it's difficult. I joined E-Mealz (recommended by Dave Ramsey). I really have enjoyed having everything pre-planned for me and I have also saved some money along the way. BUT, I am still left wondering if there are some other ways we could still cut back. That's where YOU come in. Please share your tips with me. How do you make feeding your family more affordable?
One question in particular that I would be interested in hearing the answer to is this...What is a reasonable amount to spend on a family of five for a dinner time meal? Is it $10? $5? Along this line, I would also love for you to share one (or more) of your family's favorite & cheapest recipes.
(This is what my grandmother called it, some other people call it Goulash)
1 box of elbow macaroni ($1.00)
1/2 pound ground beef (<$1.00)
2 cans tomato paste ($1.00)
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (<$1.00)
Salt, pepper, & onion powder
In a large pot brown ground beef after seasoning with salt, pepper, & onion powder. Add in water (enough to cover macaroni - more if you like it soupier), macaroni, tomato paste, and salt & pepper (to taste). Cook until noodles are tender. Serve sprinkled with cheddar cheese. My kids also like to add in nature's seasoning for their own added flavor.
We hardly ever have leftovers of this recipe. Cost of entire recipe = less than $4.
Ok, now it's your turn. Help a sister out!
