    Hey, thanks for checking out my blog. Usually all my meals are done for cheap. My small family of 3 eats for $50 a week; so I need to be creative with what we have.

    I love the simply in season cook book. My friend has it and I have enjoyed a couple good recipes from there. I love the squash bars. They are delicious (she even added some chocolate chips!)

    Just found your site. It looks great, but I’m wondering if you have any menu plans for diabetics. So many diabetic cookbooks rely on fancy or expensive exotic stuff, and I need cheap…

    Nice site!

    we’re having something similar for dinner tomorrow with your chili topped potatoes; I’m not sure what mine are called but basically you brown 1/2 pound of ground meat, mix in it 14 ounces spaghetti sauce and a 7-ounce can of corn, heat it through and serve it on top of baked potatoes

    menu looks great!
