Recently, I came across this really cool blog (365 days of crock potting) when my friend, T, posted it on her blog after hearing of it from a friend. After looking around there, I also stumbled across The Grocery Cart Challenge and $5 Dinners.
If there are three things that are true about me they are that 1. I love to cook good food, 2. I love to eat good food, and 3. I love to save money on the good food that I am going to cook and eat.
These blogs have some very creative ideas about to save money and still cook good food. I used to think I used my crock pot a lot, shopped quite frugally and wisely until I "met" Stephanie, Gayle and the $5 dinner mom. It is important to me to be wise when it comes to managing what we've been given. It is my responsibility to be a good steward of what the Lord has blessed us with. I don't even have kids yet, I just have one hungry husband to feed, and I find it difficult to stay on budget while still eating well-balanced meals. I am amazed to see these women who are feeding a family (some even feeding teenagers!) and doing it so frugally.
If you are someone who likes to cook, eat and be frugal, you should take a minute to check out these blogs for some great ideas.
