Recipe Costs

One way of keeping my grocery cost down is by taking a chunk of meat like a roast and dividing it for different meals. We had a roast on Sunday.I cut off how much we would eat that day, and kept the remains away from the family, hidden from view so that I could use the remains this week for other meals. Yesterday the teenager made a stir-fry with a portion of roast. Tonight we are having some soup and Thursday a Sheppard pie. For a larger family a $7.00 roast has to last. Vegetables and starch is the key to stretching a meal.Of course variety is also required.

Sometimes it is really nice to know how much you are saving by costing out your meals by scratch. I found this site really interesting as it breaks down all the ingredients you use in a recipe. The site is here. and some links are here.

I found this interesting and thought to share.
