In this economy, many families are finding new ways to save money and still create healthy, delicious meals for their loved ones. That's what this cubit is all about. Many of the recipes here are quite creative, utilizing ingredients that are not the 'traditional' ones used. These can be money saving shortcuts that will help you balance your budget and still keep your family's pantry full.
If you have a small plot of ground, you may also want to start your own home garden. It's a great learning experience for the entire family, and it will supply you with organic food too!
I hope you stay and chat a while. I just started work on this project on the 29th Oct, but sure would like some great cooking company! :)
Please feel free to post your own recipes in the proper categories too :)
Sincerely,
Lynxx

Hi Lynxx, looks like a great Cubit. I'm amazed at how fast you put it together! Looking forward to checking out your recipes and tips. Nice article too. I do the menu planning thing but only for a week at a time. I still try to buy large quantities but just put the extras on the menu for the next week.

One thing I do that everybody thinks is strange is that I write my grocery list up in the order of how the store is layed out. That saves me time running back and forth in the store too. Smiling

I do the exact same thing Chris! I hate shopping, so I like learning what is in each aisle. I write the list to correspond to the first row in front of store, and work my way back. It saves me time. I thought I was the only one who did that. Hilarious!

Yeah, don't you hate it when they move the stuff on the shelves to different aisles? That really gets my goat. I tell them, just leave the stuff where it's been for years. They just roll their eyes at me. Grumbling

That drives me nuts too. I know they do it so you have to look around more and hopefully find more to buy, but its a waste of my time.

Was wondering if I could join in the fun? I'm not much of a cook and it's just me & DH, but I try to make interesting things with what I just happen to have in the cupboard.

Good morning Kathy! thank you for the compliment, I'm working on it, along with the help of some cyber friends I've made here ;)
And it's coincidental that you popped in, I'm getting ready to start my winter gardens, and am doing them container style! :)

Denver is beautiful. Albeit cold right now. I'll never forget the first time I saw Colorado, as we drove through the tall rockies, looking down into ant sized valleys, tiny little country towns snuggled beneath the trees. An absolute picture postacard :)

LOL.. wanna trade? I haven't been to Florida since the early 80s.. and I'll happily give away the mountains to anyone who can give me naturally occurring water on a constant basis and not have to worry about it drying up 8 months of the year!!! I vaguely remember the first time I saw the Gulf of Mexico (I've only been to Panama City, and the last time I was there was '82).. I couldn't believe that there was that much water in the world! And it's not that cold right now.. this weekend was in the 70s (extremely odd weather).

I love the stormy pictures you took on Oct 18th. And the birds...are they heading south? Lol, my husband is dying to get back to more mountainous places. He hates Fla, only because it's so flat. We lived in Vegas a while. I hated it, I'm not a gambler, and I could barely breathe. he loved it, or course.
