    Default $30.00 menu

    This is what I add on file. I hope this is the one you wanted. I
    did not post much before, but so glad you are back..

    Baking powder, Baking soda, Mayonnaise, Spices/herbs/salt, Vanilla
    Shopping List
    5 lbs all purpose flour .89
    5 lbs sugar 1.89
    2 cartons eggs 1.78
    l lb cheddar cheese 3.00
    2 gallons milk 3.98
    2 lbs regular margarine 1.68
    2 lbs hamburger 1.98
    1 lb lunch meat 1.29
    3 28oz cans tomato sauce 2.67 (may want some Italian ones)
    10 lbs potatoes 1.79
    5 lbs carrots 1.29
    5 lbs apples, medium size 3.00
    1 cabbage .60
    2 lbs dry navy beans .60
    2 lbs elbow macaroni 1.00
    1 lb spaghetti .50
    1 yeast 3 pack 1.29
    Total 29.23

    Note: For anyone not on quite as stringent a budget, or
    who can get
    better deals, or who has a garden; Add some more
    especially green ones. I'd add fruit or juice to the
    breakfasts without the apples. I'd probably also buy
    popcorn for
    snacks. Some Great Places For Recipes Are:
    Recipe Source 70,000 recipes (formally SOAR)
    FATFREE: The Low Fat Vegetarian Recipe Archive 3,000+ recipes
    Both sites have good organization and search engines
    The food above could produce the menu below. If you make
    breads, this saves a lot of money on the yeast. Great
    recipes are at
    the soar site. You don't need to let the starter ferment
    for a long
    time to get it going, just to develop the flavor. You can
    use it at
    after one day and it will work. Just let sourdough rise
    longer than
    your usual bread recipes.
    Pancakes with saut?ed apples 3 times
    Cheese biscuits 2 times
    Muffins (plain, apple or spice) 3 times
    Here I am assuming that Mark and Danielle will take
    packed lunches
    and that you and Mollie will eat at home on weekdays.
