It occured to me that you might be wondering how we can feed two extra families when we are so strapped for funds these days. While it has been tough, we have quite a stockpile and my heart is led by my maker to be a servant to others and help whenI can.
So here is a break down of last night's meal for three families and might I add that there is enough leftovers for all 3 families for lunch or supper tonight.
Spaghetti- 2pks. Bought fo $.50 per pack and had a $.50 coupon= FREE
Meatballs - $1 from Angel Food
Ground chuck 1/2 cup - $.75
Spaghetti sauce - 1 can and 2 jars $2.00 (with sale and coupons)
Bagged salad $1.25
2 cans peas $.66
bell pepper $.68
celery FREE (borrowed from my Mom )
cheese (1/2 bag) $1
Cake mix $.49 on sale
Icing $1- $.50 coupon doubled = FREE
3 eggs $.15 (got a dozen reducedto $.50)
garlic powder $.05
This made 21 biscuits
Grand total $11.64. That comes out to $3.88 per family. I thought that was a pretty good deal for anybody!
It doesn't take a lot to do for others, especially those in need! I love to cook and do for others, so what better combination?!
