lol! well, it occurred to me that i had never read a comment on your basic plan and thought i’d do some encouraging…nothing like a testemonial, eh?! lol!
that’s so cute about what your son said;-)
yeah, $10 doesn’t do much of anything anymore!
hell! I remember just a couple of years ago that $5 would work for me;-
glad I gave you a giggle…I thought the subject line would grab everyone’s attention!

(which then made me laugh even harder because i actually said that out loud and then my s.a.
kid asked, “who are you wiggling for, dad’s not here???”>> I had to resort to Liss’ $10 grocery bill again (which was a bit higher — I know ya’ll are paying attention to the increases in everything) and menu.<<Yeah, I gotta write a new one of those, just goes to show you how fast things change, grocery prices, gas prices Oy Vey!It wasnt too long ago that you really could put $10 worth of gas in your car and make it the rest of the week.
Now I can’t mow my lawn for that much.>>I didn’t have any peas, but I had a 10-oz package of frozen chopped broccoli and substituted that. man that was good over toast!<<It’s good with home canned carrots too ..
mmmmm>>tonight I’m combining it with potatoes and onions to make a casserole so it should
be yummy.<<That’s basically the same filling as the chix pot pie, but with chix stock in it instead of tuna.Variations that I’ve triedof this dirt cheap meal:Put the filling on:~Biscuits~Toast~Saltine Crackers- really good with the tuna wiggle~Make Mini “pot pies” using a muffin pan- just put the filling in each muffin pan circle (I use the big muffin pans) and top with a mini pie crust.(i use a plastic rubbermaid bowl to cut out the perfect size top)Change the filling by adding a can of shrimp instead of tuna for Shrimp Wiggle, or any various veggies that you have in your freezer, or any various meats chopped up- leftover chicken, pork, beef, you name it.>>so if anyone had any questions about the tastiness of liss’ recipes on her super cheap menu — don’t!
i’ve used her plan beforeand with my little modification, the meal was even better.<<Thanks gal! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe!~Liss
