we have been on food stamps for a long time and i mean years well for the last year we have always ended up having to buy at least 2 and a half weeks of groceries out of our pockets. SOOOO, dh and i decided to get off food stamps all together! I make everything homemade and i mean everything. Except canned food like corn,green beans,carrots,and peas. Other than ithat i make homemade beans and find different things to do with potatoes like scalloped,fried,mashed,etc, it feels so good to "stand on our own" for a chance and it feels so good to tell the casheir at the grocery store "debit" rather than "ebt"....lol..i even make homemade desserts. For example, homemade peach cobbler is a hit in my house. I have like 7 cookbooks and that is what i use to get my ideas. Plus it is much cheaper and better to cook from scratch. Not bragging just wanted to share!
