Topic #4: Dinners on a BUDGET!

One of my favorite presents that my mom ever gave me was this big binder of recipes from our childhood. Back then, money was very tight and there were a lot of mouths to feed (she's always joked that she should write a book on how to feed a family of 6 for under $10!) so she always found ways to keep food costs down without sacrificing flavor.

That mentality kind of stuck with me as an adult and love finding inexpensive (yet yummy!) new dinners to add to our meal list. My husband and I are both big fans of eating out (very budget-unfriendly!) but if I sit down and make out a dinner list for the week and keep it on my fridge, I'm much more likely to stick to it.

Over the next week, I'll be adding a few of my favorite recipes from my mom, as well as some new ones I've come across in the last few years. I'm also hoping many of you will share your favorites! Please email your recipes to: Make sure to include the source, if necessary. Pictures are by no means required (I need to remember to take pictures of my meals and add them!) but are a great plus. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
