I have been diligently trying to stay within a budget these last couple of weeks and was surprised to see no matter how bare our cupboards were and our fridge was, I was able to succeed. It is all about making a plan and sticking to it, whether you like it or not. I was encouraged by my friend who lives with in a tight budget. When I began to feel the need to cop out, she helped me to stick with it.
For those moms, dads, or perhaps single folk, looking for meals to make for a week, here is a sample of meals we have just finished.

Wednesday- Breakfast- Pancakes, farmers sausage, and hashbrowns
