Ideas to stretch your budget

No matter what I hear on the news about the economy getting better, the papers tell of more people being laid off from their jobs. Each trip to the grocery store reminds me of the stories of people in Germany during WWII having to take a wheelbarrow of money to buy food.

The shelves are filled with many choices that make it a bit depressing as we choose between what we want and what we can afford.

When we got married, my aunt told me, “You may not be able to eat steak, but you must eat healthy in order to be able to work.” Following her advice, I’ve gathered hundreds of recipes that keep meals healthy and not boring. We love steak, but use the doctor’s guideline of eating a piece of meat the size of a deck of cards.

Cooking from ‘scratch’ is much more economical and likely more healthy than using prepared mixes and frozen dinners. Making and freezing extra food will provide meals for later, using a crockpot will tenderize less expensive cuts of meat.

Henry David Thoreau advocated simplifying life years ago. Making a game of ways to do that and counting your blessings for what you have will keep your spirits up. Draw up a list of free things to do for entertainment, then be sure to get off the couch and enjoy life.

This recipe was given to me by a young woman who is very particular about her laundry.
