This week's update

Sorry to my readers for getting so behind on blogging!! My son is doing fine now after his surgery, but I just got so behind on housework, schooling my kids and everything else that I just haven't had much time to blog this week. I promise I didn't really fall off the face of the earth. :)

This week, we have been following our food stamp budget, and we did quite nicely with it. In fact, I still had a lot of pantry staples like beans and rice and flour that I was able to use in meals. I actually didn't have to go to the grocery store until last night. This week has been a little chilly, so we have enjoyed soups and stews this week, as well as baked chicken.

If you've joined me on this challenge, I'd love to hear what you've been cooking for your family! And next week, I try to post the menu for the week early on, so you can see what we're eating!

If you really want to stretch your family food budget, check out This is a site where you can purchase enough food for a family of 4 for a week for $30. It is first quality, fresh food. I am not affiliated with them in any way except to say that I purchase the food monthly and have not been disappointed. My family buys their food there as well. They also provide recipes to use with the current month food package. There are other specials available such as meat only, veggie box, chicken only. All very reasonably priced. Check out the site and if there isn't one in your area, they tell you how you can start one. Pass this info on to anyone who is in need.
