With all of the rising in food prices, and the current state of our economy, with no sign of it getting any better, I was thinking it would be nice if we shared some of our low cost meal solutions with one another, and other little money saving tips we may all have.
I know that God will provide for us all during these times, but I also realize, that we all need to be in survival mode. I for one, have come to the realization, that a 3 or 4 course meal is not realistic for us anymore, we just can't afford to eat as we once did. Our meals are much simpler these days, and when in the past, my goal was to prepare an excellent meal for my family, which I would still like to be able to do, our finances no longer support that, so now my goals have shifted to survival, and how to provide a meal that is filling, and nutritious, to the best of my ability.
We still have bigger meals once or twice a week, but for the most part, our meals are very simple, and include one dish, and bread of some sort. Chicken n' dumplings is one of those dishes, and a can of peas can be added to it if desired.
I am hoping that we will all get some great ideas and support from one another to curb our expenses, and lift one another up as we all struggle with this world, while waiting for Jesus to take us out of here!
