    oops! I was thinking that you laid out the ingredients and they had to make their own! LOL!

    That would be a great idea, actually! I would do that for sandwiches or bagel pizzas, maybe?

    good looking menu;-) what do you make available to go with the ‘on your own night?’

    I am not sure what you mean. I either have Bagel Bites or Chicken Fingers. It is an “easy” night. I am usually so busy on Fridays I just throw something that takes less than 10 minutes in…so this is frozen or those 90 second meals that you throw in the microwave.

    I didn’t see the show but I looked on google and found this…the only piece of the book I could find for free: 10 Rules for Avoiding Emotional Infidelity

    I disagree that there cannot be variety on a limited budget. There are a gazillion foods to make on a budget. You can make pasta a million and twenty two ways.

    You can have nights when you have breakfast for dinner. You can cook chicken every way known to man. You can buy store brand and use spices to make it taste better.

    I think we get so used to eating a certain way that we truly don’t realize what is out there until we are forced to decrease our budget and get creative. Check out the recipe area and see some. Look me up, I will post some I know of.

    I have already posted a bunch for Dinner for 2, that you could easily make for more. All recipes I make are pretty cheap to make, as I don’t buy anything expensive…EVER.

    I love when my daughter cooks for me! She surprises me often by cooking and I let her know that is better than any gift she could buy me.

    Hello,
    I am interested in receiving that coupon. Please let me know if it is still available. Thanks =)

    I can’t figure out how to send you a private message. The forum specifically says to deal with these through PM so please contact me that way with your address.

    Thank you,

    I make use of a local Food Bank to take some of the pain out of monthly food costs. Today I got canned vegetables, dried beans, grapefruiit & tomato juice, pasta noodles, spaghetti, cabbage salad mix, fresh pears, fruit cups and bread.

    Angel Food Ministries is an excellent source for food at a low cost. It is too much food for me to store so I haven’t used them yet.

    What I love about Angel Food is that at only $30 a month, it isn’t hard to find someone to go in on it with me when I don’t have the room in my freezer! I have even bought boxes and only taken a few things and then given the other to someone I knew needed it, when I haven’t had room for more than a thing of chicken and steak. There is a LOT of food if you are single or two people.

    One box lasts my daughter and I an entire month!

    Thank you so much! Please take what I say the right way…I am really shocked. As I said, I cannot imagine living on so little, and yet it actually sounds like you live better than I am!

    LOL. I was reading what you have thinking, I want those budgeting skills. I expected you to say you had no cable, no phone, just internet and a cell.

    You have done an excellent job and I hope when you receive your degree you are able to get a great paying job that will bless your family! Thank you again for sharing!
