Here's a question from a Little House Living reader:
"When times are tough, what are your frugal go-to recipes?"
There are times at the end of the month before our next co-op order where we might be really stretching what we have on hand.
One thing I always have on hand in canned tomatoes. I purposely can many many MANY tomatoes in the summer so we at least have this one versatile fruit on hand. Hamburger is one of the most inexpensive meats so it's a great one to have lots of recipes for! Pair that up with pasta (any kind!) and you've got Goulash!
The crockpot is a great kitchen appliance because it can take all kinds of cheap foods and make them yummy! I like to buy whole chickens and cook them nice and slow in the crockpot to make the meat super tender. Add noodles and you've got Chicken Noodle Soup for supper!
I like recipes that I can easily alter to what I have on hand. This Lasagna takes a few ingredients that you might not always have on hand but you can really make alot with a little!
Have a question for me? Ask it here!
