Are you ready for meal plan 2 in our 12 week series on frugal meal planning? I think we are going to have a few dishes that incorporate beans too and maybe some chicken sausage to break things up. I don’t think beef for 6 days out of the week would be idea.
Oh, oh, oh, and guess what my friends? The countdown is ON and Thanksgiving is SEVEN days away. Bring on all my favorite foods. Thanksgiving in our family is frugal meal planning at its best. We split up the meal and all bring a dish or two so no one has to foot a steep bill. Well, besides the turkey. My parents usually take care of that one.
