I am so, so excited because I have found someone to take Ada's pictures (and a few family pictures) for an extremely reasonable price, and we have scheduled a photography session for the last Friday in September. Despite the insanely low price, we are still having to shave off other areas of the budget in order to pay for the session. The first area that is being shaved is the grocery budget, so I am having to get creative once again. Though it is still rather hot outside, I think I will be cooking several different soups in the coming week. Mainly because they are healthy and affordable.
I am really excited to try a 16 bean soup recipe, whose ingredient list is very short--1 bag of bean soup mix, 1 onion, 1 packet of onion soup mix, and water. I will be serving this with cornbread, and that will be dinner for two nights. I got this recipe from Crockpot 365. Thanks for the idea, Ashley.
I am determined to eat healthy despite the reduced budget. I just can't stand the thought of feeding my family junk just because it's cheap. So...any ideas for healthy, frugal meals? I do think we will be doing Amanda's quesadilla recipe. Thanks for the recipe, Amanda!!
