Saving in the kitchen...
- Try vegetarian meals or decreasing the meat in casseroles.
- Cheese in the dairy case is less expensive than cheese in the deli.
- Finely chop an onion for every pound of hamburger and fry together to extend the amount of meat.
- Make more soups as the main course.
- Put left over vegetables & meats in a container in the freezer and when container is full make a pot of soup. Sounds gross but it's usually great and you get a free meal out of it.
