Not a very pretty picture but a delicious meal.😋 Shepherd’s pie (technically cottage pie.) is my daughter’s all time favorite dinner. Which is good news for me bc it’s affordable, easy to make, and yummy! I end up making this about once a month. It costs around $10 to make and feeds my family for daysss ( Recipe yields A LOT.) All I do is cook 1lb ground beef with onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. To that I add a spoonful of flour (This is important and keeps it from being soupy.) a bag of frozen peas and carrots, half a bag of frozen corn, and one jar of beef gravy. I put that in a casserole dish and top with mash potatoes (I use Bob Evans lol) and cheddar cheese. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting into it. I always serve mine with salad! #momsohard #dinnerideas #shepherdspie

Despite my poor food presentation skills, this apple cobbler was delicious 😋 we had 3 apples 🍎 that were pretty soft that we wouldn’t eat; the old me would have tossed them and not given it a second thought, but the new me figured out something to make. We try to avoid sugar, but tonight this warm, gooey, bowl full of goodness just hit the spot, especially on a cold Colorado night! 👍🏻🍎 #zerofoodwaste #frugalmeals #yummyfood #yummyyummyinmytummy

We had the half price bao buns for lunch today when hubs got home. These were $6 and I picked up an $0.80 bag of coleslaw to accompany. They tasted ok, but there is NO WAY I would ever pay $12 for the six of them and I’m in two minds if I would ever pay $6 for them again either. #triedsomethingnew #asianfood #usingthereducedhaul #lunchfortwo #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity #budgetmum #budgetliving #frugalmum #frugalmeals
Dinner tonight was my spin on bagels and lox and roasted garlic and Parmesan broccoli with melted Gouda on top.

Last week I mentioned that my grocery shopping method wasn't working ( buying whatever tickled my fancy , then making a menu around that) and this week I tried to incorporate many of the ideas you all suggested ( specifically batch cooking and freezer meals) and while I wasn't perfect, it did help! The freezer now has a small variety of fully prepared meals, meats that are in marinades, and meal starters like taco chicken , black beans,meatballs, and roasted pork shoulder. I did go over budget 😬 stocking up on ingredients to fill the freezer and I still had an impulse buy of a gigantic bundle of fresh mint but I'm feeling much better. The only thing we needed to buy for the rest of the month was fresh produce! Thanks everyone who chimed in with solid advice! You are my people! #debtfreecommunity #learningprocess #askandyoushallreceive #debtfreejourney #batchcooking #frugalmeals #brokeonpurpose #babystep2 #fpu

I made two hello fresh meals tonight, chicken and coconut red curry and a seared beef and potatoes dish (a meal leftover from last week). The men of the house had beef and us girls had curry 😋 #freefood #quickandeasy #frugalmeals #delicious #dinnerforfive #feedingmyfamily #familyof5 #curry #steak #hellofreshau #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity
Early dinner. My choice was chow mien. Yum!

Creamy Pumpkin Sauce with Sausage Meatballs
.
.
All homemade, all from random ingredients in the fridge and pantry....and yes, I used pumpkin pie filling from a can, because I didn't want it to sit on my shelf any longer and had high hopes it could put on it's big boy pants and become something delicious.
.
.
Boy oh boy was I right!!! And the all-natural sausage for the Meatballs from a local farm is 🔥 🔥!!
.
.
Ok y'all, don't knock it til you try it! .

Making the most of the 7-Eleven $2 sandwiches on a Wednesday! 😂 One for today and another in the work fridge for tomorrow (I always check the use by dates!). Apparently the $2 sandwiches and sushi finish today but hoping they’ll bring it back again. So cheap and a couple of lunches I don’t need to worry about making during the week #frugalliving #frugalmeals #frugallife #frugalfamily #frugalfinds #savingmoney #workingmum #brisbanemums #brisbanebudget #budgetlivingtips #debtfreejourney #debtfreecommunity

There’s a reason why my kids’ first solid foods were runny egg yolks: they’re packed to the brim with awesome fat, protein, and nutrients, and cooking those precious little nuggets can denature the proteins to the point of causing egg allergies. The raw factor has never caused any issues, and egg yolks have such a mild and creamy flavor that both kids enjoyed. I still scramble eggs most mornings now that my son is older, but keeping the right foods raw or undercooked has always been important to us when introducing baby foods.
—
I was feeling too lazy to soft boil eggs, and wanted to give my daughter a new experience, so I tonight tried a spin on tamago gohan—a Japanese breakfast of raw egg cracked over hot rice and mixed vigorously. For her, I just mixed in the yolk with no frills. It looked amazing in its simplicity: creamy, fat filled, and satisfying.
—
But 10-month-olds could care less about what you think they might like. 😂 A few grains got into her mouth, while the rest smeared into her hair and clothes and overall caused a huge mess. Might have to introduce it again another time. But on the plus side, my son enjoyed the rejects with a little bit of salt, pepper, and gluten free soy sauce. 😋 I could picture the tamago gohan approach working well with hot shiraraki noodles, or even steaming cauliflower rice for anyone bold enough to try it on keto.

Grocery shop done. Spent $93.25 at Aldi and $37.41 at Woolworths. I had a bonus offer of 800 points for buying the Woolworths brand nappies, which was great timing because they were on the shopping list! Meal Plan to follow....

Hasselback potato bake fore the frugal/cook ahead win! This was a super easy and you prob have most of the ingredients on hand (potatoes, onions, garlic, butter, oil). Hubby was here for the day so I prepped this, some #instantpot meatballs, and @budgetbytes spinach artichoke pasta. Felt good knowing I won’t have to cook for the next few days!!

Lunch today was pretty delicious. I made Mac n Cheese 😏. I bought the Oprah Mac n Cheese last week when I was sick, and needed to do something with it. 💪

#whatsonmyplate : Oprah Mac n Cheese made with butternut squash made into a bake. Inside is mushrooms, my crockpot chicken with bbq sauce, and some panko bread crumbs. Having it with my green beans and carrots I made yesterday. I put the meal in my meal prep container to take to lunch, just not as pretty as pictured here. 😊

Protein oats again this morning! Oatmeal not only is a great thing for #mealprep . Oatmeal is also a great way to save money, as the mixins/toppings you most likely already have laying around in the kitchen. 👏🏻

Good frugal dinner, even if it is a bit carb heavy 🍠🥔

Rough day after getting hit by Murphy, on occasions like this we would of easily bought dinner and simply justify "it's been a long rough day".

Tostadas for dinner tonight made with the taco meat I had in the freezer from the last time we had them. This is one of my favorite things to make because it’s so fast and easy and my son loves it.

It’s fairly frugal and super easy to customize and cut costs even further if you make all the items yourself. If you’re pressed for time or don’t want to deal with extra dishes, you can buy canned refried beans and premade tostadas and you’re good to go.

I made chicken pot pie for dinner. It’s so simple, cheap, and delicious. Shred one pound of cooked chicken, mix in a can of cream of chicken and half a bag of frozen vegetables, salt & pepper to taste. Pour that into your pie pan and cover with your pie crust (I buy mine from Aldi, it comes with two in a pack). Cut four slits in the top and bake on 400 degrees for 30 minutes, turn up to 425 degrees and bake until golden brown. I rub butter over the top of mine after I pull it out of the oven. #frugalliving #frugalmeals #frugalmom #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtfreegoals #payingoffdebt #financialfreedom #financialpeace #daveramsey #daveramseybabysteps

#Snacktime looks like stove-top popped (so cheap!) #popcorn with butter, pink salt, nutritional yeast, and ground flax seeds with cara cara #oranges. It was gonna be a smoothie on the side, but...see stories. 😅

Lunch today was simple and easy. Left the carrots on a little too long, but the char actually gives them some delicious flavor. I had the chicken in the crockpot over night and seasoned it with bbq coffee seasoning from #traderjoes ! 👏🏻

#whatsonmyplate : open faced buffalo pulled chicken sandwich with some low fat blue cheese. Yummy garlic green beans, and carrots.  I made the bread myself over the weekend, using a no knead  recipe. Even cut some groves in the bread before baking to give it some “character.” 😊

Rainy day off school = #zerowaste #batchcooking for lunch. Soup features carrots, celery, and green beans from the freezer, an onion and garlic from the pantry, chopped chicken thighs that were premeditated leftovers from Sunday dinner, and scrap stock from the chicken bones + veggie peels that I'd been freezing for a couple weeks. I am planning to cook jasmine rice separately to mix into each bowl.

Soup features carrots, celery, and green beans from the freezer, an onion and garlic from the pantry, chopped chicken thighs that were premeditated leftovers from Sunday dinner, and scrap stock from the chicken bones + veggie peels that I'd been freezing for a couple weeks. I am planning to cook jasmine rice separately to mix into each bowl. This will be lunch today + dinner Wednesday before church, and I'm going to take a bit to a friend who had sick babies this weekend. #debtfreecommunity  #frugalmeals 
Kroger Haul. I spent $97.01 on everything pictured and will be getting $11.25 back from Ibotta (referral link in bio 🙏🏼) making this $85.76! This means that I have $76.54 left of my two week grocery budget left. I will use this to stock up on good deals if I find them or I may just send that right on to debt.

A lot of this food isn’t part of the current menu plan, but I found such good deals to fill my pantry and freezer that it will help in the coming weeks.

Was able to pick up a bone-in ham this week at a great price. We will now be eating several meals thus week revolving around this ham.  Last night we are it just ham with scallop potatoes. But I will be freezing some to make pizza at the end of this week. Also it will get used for lunches and breakfast meals. Tell what us your favorite thing to do with a ham? I'm always looking for new ideas that me and my family will love

Another delicious @cookingclassy recipe in the books! I followed the Pasta Carbonara recipe exactly except the only additional salt I added was to the pasta water and I subbed dry parsley for fresh (added into the sauce instead of on top for garnish). #debtfreecommunity #llnoe #debtfreejourney #budget #budgeting #frugalliving #debtisdumb #debtfreeliving #personalfinance #debtsnowball #debtavalanche #financialgoals #babysteps #babystep2 #financialfreedom #debtfreegoals #debtfreeaf #zerobasedbudget #homeeconomist #cashisking #cashenvelopes #daveramsey #brokeonpurpose #menuplanning #menuplan #frugalmeals #nowaste #batchcooking

Pantry challenge day 18: my sons lunch! Salmon salad and veggies on the menu-like I’ve said before- we don’t do picky and require him to at least try 1 “no thank you” bite for every new food he tries or that we offer him to eat. This has led to a four year old with a pretty diverse and uncomplicated palate- the only things he doesn’t really like are eggs, Mac and cheese, and chicken nuggets (which I really can’t complain about the last two😉)

10 days to go in our February pantry challenge! 🙌🏽

I’m kind of freaking out. We have a $200-$250 food budget and found out last week we need to change our sons diet for medical reasons. Removing Gluten & Dairy. I’m nervous, very nervous how to maintain this while sticking to a small grocery budget for 6 people. If anyone in the #debtfreecommunity has experience in this and willing to share please PM me!

Is it still a pantry challenge if the item is free? I just found a bunch of FREE cream cheese qs and these free Chobani qs. Would love to show off a $0.00 receipt! #frugalmeals #freebies #cashenvelopes #menuplanning #couponer #couponfreebies #arlacreamcheese #chobani #debtfreecommunity

Grocery Haul at Walmart. I did my first online order and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with it. I got $10 off my first order and also completed a mystery shopping job as a part of it that will give me another $8 back. Not pictured is a 9v battery that was a part of another shopping job, but I will count it towards this haul since my item cost less than my payment. 
So, all in all I paid $45.70 and will be getting $8.00 making this all $37.70. I have a few more items I want to get at Kroger, and that will be all for two weeks. I have $162.30 left and I’m confident I won’t be using all of it.

My remaining budget for the last of February was $76.37 of $300 goal. Family of 6. I include all household items as well as diapers full time for one child and at night for another. Total today = $95.80 for 2 weeks of meals or $16 per person! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, work lunches for husband and son, and snacks for my daughter to take to school. I had mom guilt for going out to eat without the kids and put a couple extra  things in my cart for them which is some of the overage.😜 Anyone else do that?

This was fairly easy to put together because there were quite a few meals I didn’t get around to (see previous post 😣), but I feel great and have a renewed sense of motivation to stick to this!

Waste not, want not! Made some Yorkshire puddings today for dinner and had some extra batter mix left over. In the past I would probably just throw it out, but being I’m being #frugal, I have bagged it and frozen it.  Should be enough batter mix for 6 more puds and so as long as I plan it right, our next roast will have homemade Yorkshire pudding which is always nicer and saves having to buy some ready made ones! So that’s #frugality and also saves a £ or so and that’s a winner in my book. It’s the little things that add up!

Here’s my meal plan and grocery list for this week. The only meal I am “skipping,” would be Thursday’s lunch. I normally go out to eat with people from my office. So, I  have been sick pretty much for a month, and I haven’t been sticking to my plan like I should. Now, I am finally feeling better after some medicine and actually taking it easy this week. 😄

My goal this week is to get back to my normal routine with eating right and heading to the  gym. I have been doing half of my fitness challenge everyday so that’s a start. 😊

Want to save money on snacks?

Stick with the basics! This is a great example of a balanced snack with protein, fat, and carbs. Fillers like crackers and chips have negligible nutritional value and cost a lot more than a nutrient-dense snack like this. .
.
Other snack ideas:
🍎 Apples dipped in plain Greek yogurt mixed with pb and cinnamon
🥦 Veggies and hummus with turkey slices (I had leftover chicken breast I cut in thin slices)
🍇Olives, cottage cheese with berries
🧀 String cheese, raisins, chicken sausage

How do you eat string cheese? Do you just take bites or do you eat it the right way and peel it??

So.much. Food!!!! Day 17 of our freezer/pantry challenge and just took stock of what remains. I’ve been updating this list as i pull things out of the freezer and will for sure be keeping a freezer inventory list going forward- so helpful when planning my weekly meals and grocery store trips! Any one else love their deep freezer as much as I do? Best $150 spent ever! 🙌🏽💕

I love brunch. 🍳🥓🥂Can anyone else relate? Eggs. Mimosas. Bacon. Biscuits.

One of the hardest parts of this #debtfreejourney is sacrificing brunch dates out with my man. He works odd hours and split shifts, and the weekend is usually our time to reconnect. But I'm learning that coffee ☕️ and eggs at home are just as delicious, and cheaper. Plus, I can wear my leggings and go bra less at home. 🤷🏼‍♀️ just being honest. It's also easier to eat healthily. This morning we're having eggs, turkey sausage, avocado 🥑 and lots of coffee. .

Chicken and Rice is always a go to meal because #1 it’s always rice in the pantry and #2 it doesn’t have to taste the same. Chicken tenders, leftover onions, diced tomatoes and onions with some white wine and #tada #dinnerisserved #myplate #pantrymeal #frugalmeals #foodpics
We adapted Stephanie Alexander's Zucchini parmigiana recipe to include mince as I need to up my iron I've written the recipe on the blog as it was so delicious and a great way to use up those extra zucchini! You could easily use lentils instead of mince for a more filling veg option.

My birthday girl requested oven baked cubed steak in rice and gravy with a green bean casserole for side. I had the cubed steak frozen, I buy rice in bulk, and had cans of green beans in the pantry!
