Over the years I have learned how to cook budget-friendly meals. This used to be difficult for me. Growing up, my family cooked very large meals, enough to feed an entire brigade of soldiers. When I became an adult and was single, I didn’t have to cook at all if I did not want to. Now that I am married and have children, I am the person responsible for preparing most of the meals my family eats.
I have learned over time to make smaller meal portions. I have also learned how to cook budget-friendly meals. I don’t know about you, but in my culture we eat a lot of meat. Meat is the most expensive part of a meal. We make at least one or two pieces of meat per person, in a large family that can easily be 10 or more pieces of meat.
In order to save money, I began making more casseroles, soups, stew’s and pasta dishes. This way I can still make a meal that can feed my entire family without using a lot of meat. I have put a few links for budget-friendly meals for large families below. FYI these are not five-star gourmet dinners🍝 LOL, but they will help you get out of debt and further your financial goals.😉
There are plenty of recipes that can fit your financial budget and even help you excel. It’s as simple as making a few changes in the meals that you already eat. You can check out http://www.myfridgefood.com if you’re not sure what to make from the food you have in your refrigerator. This site lets you enter the ingredients that you have and helps you put together a recipe with them. Google is my best friend when looking for easy, budget-friendly meals.
Food is used to provide nutrition for our bodies. The meals I make are not Food Network competition ready, but they are good and they do help my family get ahead financially and that’s what’s important to me.
I hope you get a few good tips and begin to research more ways to save a few dollars on your families meals.
