We are a total of 7 and 8 with the step daughter every other weekend. Left overs are unheard of at our house. What do you ladies with a large brood do to make meals stretch beyond the norm?
We are a family of 7 and growing!
I meal plan usually to help me to save money. As for making the food stretch here is what I do: We only eat meat a few times a week. We eat lots of rice, noodles, beans , and potatoes.
Some of my favorite dishes to make are spanish rice(add corn, ground beef, and beans for a heartier meal and roll-up in a tortilla), Chicken Enchilada Supremes with white sauce, Fried Poatoes with onions and scrambled eggs, all kinds of soups, chowders and Chilis, and Spaghetti Goulash.
If you need recipes let me know.
