Recipe FOUND!

It was at Meal Planning Mommies. This sounds so good, I can't wait to try it.

It is called soup and garlic bites

Sorry I can never get anything to copy and paste here. :(

Looking for a recipe

I saw a recipe on a blog somewhere? I can't find it now. I think it was Garlic Bites, it was cut canned biscuits fried in garlic. If anyone has it can you please send it to me? Thanks

July Spending

My general spending total for July is $155.00 for food and household items. I hope to only spend $50.00 for the next two weeks to keep myself under budget. My DD#2 is getting braces so last month I had to pay $600.00 up front and I am playing catch up on bills from that. The emergency fund of $800.00 went to fixing my car in June so that needs to be built back up again. Then in August I have to start paying $226.00 a month for the braces along with buying school supplies and uniforms for the twins!

Anyway my goal for August will be to get back on track.

Meal Plan 7/19-7/31

I know that it has been a looonngg time I am sorry. All I can say is that I will try to do better.
My meal plan is based pretty much on what I have on hand. I am hoping that what I do have to buy will be less than $50.00 for the rest of the month.
Also I am going to school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. It makes it hard to plan because we generally don't want to eat dinner at 5:00. So DD#1 (who goes to the same school on the same days) and I grab something on the run and the twins will make something from the choices I give them.

7/19 Monday:The twins made pasta while DD#1 and I were at school.

7/20 Tuesday: Subs with chips

7/21 Wednesday: Grilled cheese with soup or chips

7/22 Thursday: Takeout Pizza

7/23 Friday: Pacakes with sausage links

7/24 Saturday: Homemade chicken nuggets/tater tots/peas

7/25 Sunday: Turkey/stuffing/mashed potatoes/corn/cornbread (some don't liked mashed taters some don't like stuffing)

7/26 Monday: School The choices for this week are:
7/27 Tuesday: School Soup/Grilled Cheese/Quesadilla/Mac&Cheese w/veggie/Pizza/Eat
7/28 Wednesday: School with Grandparents

7/29 Thursday: Taco Salad

7/30 Friday: French Toast/bacon

7/31 Saturday: Leftover Buffet (I would like to get as much as I can cleared out for what I hope will be one BIG shop for the month of August.)

EX meatloaf (1.75)/rice/corn =1.75
Tuesday-Soup (.50)/grilled cheese (1.00) 1.50 (testing for school)
EX meatloaf (1.75)/broc&ch (1.00) =2.75
Wednesday-Shake-n-bake chicken nuggets (2.50)/FF (1.00) = 3.50
EX Chili (0) freezer leftovers
Thursday- Ravoli (1.00)/corn (1.00)= 2.00 (work meeting)
EX ???
Friday-Bake Potatoe Bar (5.00) = 5.00 (EX too)
