I just saw this frugal meme on another blog and if it is scraping by you want to know about we do it every day. We feed our family of 8 on a food budget of $540 a month or $135 a week. Here is a great recipe that we found just the other day and everyone loves

Sloppy joe pizza
1 lb hamburger
can of sloppy joe sauce
pizza crust dough (can or homemade)
1 c shredded cheese

roll out pizza dough onto pizza pan. Brown hamburger. Drain. Stir in sauce. Layer meat over pizza dough Top with cheese and bake in 400 degree oven 15 minute

Polish Sausage Casserole
3 boxes of polish sausage casserole
1 pk polish sausage, sliced
1 c shredded cheese

Make macaroni and cheese Layer mac n cheese with sausage in a casserole dish top with cheese and bake 400 degree oven 30 minutes
