I Need Your Help!
Dear ladies, please share your ideas with me. How do you bulk up your meals in order to feed all of those growing hungry tummies, without spending much money?
I have a super duper small food budget. I also have a 16 year boy who is weight training and needs lots of calories. He is always hungry, and I feel so bad that with food prices I keep trying to cook less. He needs to eat a lot! Along with him, there is also my construction worker husband, and three other growing children.
What to do? Here are some of my ideas:
Lots of rice
Piles of potatoes
Lots of pasta
Bake homemade bread or rolls to add to a meal
Make some homemade beans along with meat, to double up the protein
Please share your ideas and/or recipes. I'd like to do a second post and share all the input I get, along with a link to your blog if you would like.
