It is all about frugal meals this week. Car repairs and 4 weeks of poor paychecks have really taken their toll on my full freezer. Not to mention that prices on meat in the stores lately have really been ridiculous. Hamburg that you used to be able to get for $2.29 a lb is now $3.69 and I can't by it at that prices. Steaks are outrageous and pork prices have almost doubled. This week I bought two pounds of hamburg (I found some at one store on sale for $2.59 lb), 2 lbs of bacon ends and pieces, some tillapia fillets (which were on sale) and some sausage dogs. I also got the "meal deal" at one store. You had to buy 2 bags of chicken tenders (almost $13)and got a two liter soda, french fries, a half gallon of ice cream and your choice of froze veggie (I got brussel sprouts) free. That will have to do us. I do still have a turkey left from Christmas, and some turkey breasts left in the freezer.
I believe I mentioned that we had homemade sourdough pizza night before last. The toppings were some of the ham I sliced with my new slicer, mushrooms(in the storage room) and red peppers (in the freezer) so it didn't cost us a thing except really (the sauce was leftover sauce from other meals that didn't need a whole can of sauce; it was saved in a jar in the freezer).
Last night we had goulash. Our goulash is just macaroni, two cans of whole tomatoes (cut up) and a pound of scrambled hamburger (I added a little onion as well). We love the stuff. Today I am going to cook some of the turkey breasts and just make turkey salad sandwiches and I may come up with a soup to go with it.
Other possibilities for this week are tacos, breakfast for supper, the sausage dogs and baked beans, Michelle can't really cook fish so if we use that I will have to cook it, I have some tuna and tuna helper that she can make, and some of the turkey could be made into turkey casserole, and there are the chicken strips too.
We will likely have meat left over at the end of the week and the animals will still be fed and the cars have gas in them, if all goes as planned anyway.
Now if the next few weeks turn out as bad we may have a few deaths in the family. I have too many roosters and drakes anyway.
