How to Feed Your Large Family on Less Than $30

01-Beef-Stew_serving2

Do you have a big family? Is the question. Or maybe you just want to learn how to save a little money because you realized that your food expense outweighs your entertainment expenses. If so, then preparing one meal to last you four days is a great strategy. As a family man, I do this little food trick myself. If you don’t know, I’m a dad with 7 children and a wife, and a simple beef stew recipe will last my family of nine for four days, even if we had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This simple beef stew will cost you less than $30. And for a family of nine, that’s amazing. So I though I would share this little recipe with you. Lets cut back on our food budget by cooking smarter.

Jolly Rancher Pop-tarts?!?!

jollyrancherpoptarts770

Do you guys like Pop-tarts? Personally I don’t really like them, although I have to admit that sometimes I will pick a box of unfrosted blueberry just because. Pop-tarts are becoming more known for their outrageous flavors, and honestly some of them are pretty darn accurate. I did lie about a line or so ago, because I just remembered that I actually do like the dunkin’ donuts vanilla latte Pop-tarts, they taste just like coffee. (Coffee lovers I suggest if you haven’t tried it, you should try it.) Anyway, apparently there is going to be three new limited edition flavors launched pretty soon and this time they’re trying out jolly rancher flavored pop-tarts. Some of your are probably like “eww why would anyone do that?” But that’s because you’re probably over 14 and don’t want to eat nothing but sugar. You have to think about this, Pop-tarts are marketed towards children, children like sweets. They’re making their money and they’re good at it. Really good at it. In all honesty I would give them a try, maybe. We’ll have to see. If you decide to try them out let me know, and if they’re bad help a brother out and tell me to stay away.

Mocha Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Mocha Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Food Network has got it going on. Mocha Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Every word of that sounds so delicious and to try and put that together? The mere thought of it makes me want to pass out from a food overload, and it hasn’t even reached my mouth yet. They call it the perfect handheld dessert. You bet your bottom dollar it is. You know I would really try to attempt to make this myself, but I don’t want to mess it up, you know. I mean you can’t have something like that and not have someone teach you how to make it before you make it. Take it from me, and I’m a professional, this needs step by step instructions, a helping hand, and a sacrifice to the gods to help you get this right if you’re planning on attempting this for the first time on your own. But you do you.

I’m not into clean eating during holidays, or clean eating at all really…..but that doesn’t mean I can’t add a few healthy options on the blog for you healthy peoples out there! I have to say I do actually have a favorite out of these three salad choices, which is crazy cause you’d probably think that if a vegetable even touched my lips, i’d fizzle out and die… one of these three salads, if not all, would be a great addition to your sunday dinner table. If nothing else…at least they’ll look nice

 

BLACKENED SHRIMP, ASPARAGUS AND AVOCADO SALAD

Blackened-Shrimp-and-Asparagus-3

This salad looks like it belongs in a restaurant, props to Karina, cause this looks delicious. Shrimp, after lobster is my favorite seafood so putting it in a salad is probably the best way to trap me into eating a vegetable. You know, unless I eat around them…

KNEADER’S CRANBERRY SUNFLOWER SALAD

This salad is the one I was talking about. The sunflowers seeds are what got me, I went to a restaurant and the waitress sprinkled the sunflower seeds into my salad ( It came with the meal) when it came to the table. It was so good, and really unexpected.
