A couple weeks back, I posted a sample of our $20 budget menu. Well, this week it’s back. But it’s bigger, and possibly a little better. I’ve also posted a shopping list with our area prices to go along with the menu. I may be posting recipes and pictures as the week goes on…so stay tuned!
We still have a good bit of venison and many other things in our pantry. Our dry goods are basically stocked for months thanks to the food yard sale, which was done on adhering to this same budget. But I wanted to put together a menu that could be accomplished by others (particularly where access to salvage food sales is not available.) This menu includes a good portion of meat (though not much red meat unless ground beef/venison is substituted for the turkey) and does not require a lot of couponing. (To see recipe links for menu items, click on underlined text.)
Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Clusters
Leftovers (Sandwiches if needed)
Chicken and Rice Soup
Maybe we should call this week the week of the bird! 😉
