Saturday: Sloppy Joes/ corn dogs for lunch
We usually don't do a big lunch on the weekends so we are going to do some store bought frozen corn dogs for lunch on Saturday.
For Dinner we're going to make our own sloppy joes with tomato sauce, sloppy joe seasoning packet, and the leftover ground meat
**You'll notice that we use a lot of beans, rice and pasta, and not so much meat. You can really make a meal much larger by using these staple items to make a little bit of meat enough to feed a whole family.
** Our grocery budget is $300-$350 a month for a family of six so to stay in that budget, we must plan our meals wisely :)
** If you would like any of these recipies, just let me know. I will not put exact ingrediants to save time but I will be happy to email you if you leave a comment :)
Good Luck, Be Blessed,
