Sometimes it’s hard finding budget friendly recipes, especially for the slow cooker. In the past few weeks, my husband and I have been watching our budget a bit more than usual since he is between contracts. While his type of work brings in great money, it also means we have no money coming in while he’s between projects. Thank god for savings! To make what we have stretch a bit further I have put our family on a tighter food budget. Since I am still working, the recipes have to be workable enough for him in the kitchen, and not taste like they are budget recipes. As someone who loves food, I refuse to accept that living on a budget means we use poor quality ingredients in healthy, nasty tasting food. If there was one thing my mother taught me growing up it is that quality food is a must, and you cut other things to make sure your family eats right!
Knowing I was on a search for budget friendly recipes, many of my blogger friends and favorite food bloggers recommended to me some of their favorites.
