This series is because we are ALL on a budget (though some of us stricter than others) and we all want to feed our families the best food we possibly can. That means we have to get creative. It means we have to make sacrifices. It means we have to plan, shop, and prepare food as carefully as we can.
I know that when I read many of my favorite blogs, I have wondered how they possibly buy and prepare such high quality food for so little money. Every single time one of them posts on this topic (and I’ll be including several of those throughout this series), I read and re-read the post, trying to figure it out. I always want to know more about cooking real food on a limited budget! And so, I thought, it’s time for a series dedicated to exactly this. How do we make it work? Step-by-step, in tiny bits.
Here’s what you have to look forward to during this month-long series:
