Frugal mama

This is the month to be frugal.  To be VERY frugal!  So lets give this a try. 

First on the list...MEAL!

I already spend near nothing on groceries but we always seem to have a lot in our cupboards.  That being said, we are eating it ALL this month.  Yes, we are going to clean out our pantry which will require a bit of creativity from this mama.  I am very open to any suggestions on simple meals (kid friendly of course) so please comment with any you may have. 

A few meals we may start with...
  1. Bean and cheese burritos (and whatever salsa/sour cream we have in the fridge)
  2. Tacos (I make taco seasoning, canned a lot of tomatoes this fall, and have a freezer full of meat)
  3. Breakfast for dinner.  Potato pancakes, bacon, and eggs from our chickens
  4. Meatloaf
  5. Roast with veggies
  6. Ham (and leftover for soups and lunch meat).
  7. Lots and lots of stew...
  8. Cheeseburger Quiche (GF of course)
  9. Skillet meat supper
  10. Pasta with homemade meatballs
  11. Whole chicken in rotisserie cooker (leftover for soup)
  12. Texas chili
  13. Mexican style beef tacos
  14. LOTS OF SOUP...and did I mention soup?
  15. Hashbrown Sausage Casserole
  16. Herb rubbed sirloin tip roast
  17. Daddy's favorite!  (Chicken pan fried in State Fair Sauce)
  18. Shepherds Pie.
  19. Sloppy Joes

And PLEASE give me some more suggestions!

Lets see how much $ we save this month doing this!
