Wicked Wednesday,

Wednesday is cooking day,  and clean out the fridge day.   Since Sunday when we deep cleaned the freezer and fridge, it should be easy,    I promised granddaughter that we would make cookies, amd a perogie dish in the crockpot is on the agenda.    

Watching other people's videos, I saw a apple fritter cake.   I love apple fritters and it's another recipe that doesn't take exotic ingredients-- just things I always have in the pantry. Having a list of recipes that don't take any special imgredients  helps keep the budget on track and still afford treats that aren't laden with preservatives and you control the fat.  

  1. Sugar cookies 
  2. Apple fritter cake 
  3. Banana bread 
  4. Snickerdoodles 
  5. Brownies 
Watching other people's videos, gives you a perspective of what tondo and not to do.    Value based large families tend to have a no wholes bared approach-- just good food.    On a tight budget, the six bags of chips and 3 cases of pop amd bottled juice, just doesn't work.   Besides not being healthy, it's costly.    

Buying in bulk at RBP, using coupons, and not wasting food are principals that will save your grocery budget.    

Groceries on the cheap is looking at the Put Dinner On The Table meal train from a different
 pro sypective.  The emphasis is on purchasing good food( shelf- stable/ freezer staples )at the lowest possible cost and purchasing enough to last you until it goes on sale again -- Keeping a controlled non-perishable stock of the things you use on a regular basis. It means that when you shop, rather than purchasing just what you need for a day or a week, you  buy a loss leader protein, produce you will 
need on sale, a stock item if it's a RBP, and dairy instead.    This allows you to put well balanced meals 
on the table consistently  for a four dollar a day budget per person.   You spend more time on the planning and shopping end of the meal train and less on the cooking end by cooking efficiently.    

Four dollars a day is the target amount for people on snap.   My premise is that of you can do it on four dollars a day, spending more isn't hard.   You still get more bang for your buck.
