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 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.
