      All the beans and rice definitely paid off and my husband is thoroughly enjoying having meat these days, after willingly going without it for so long. :)

        Lol, I know right?! Well, it certainly gives me hope to keep focusing on what we can do on our budget now and how God might bless those efforts someday. Especially after just going through the pantry and adding… you guessed it… both beans and rice to our menu this week! Even so- we are happy to have food to put on our tables. We are blessed, indeed. :)

    I have been doing the oatmeal pack for a long time, not only is it cheap, but healthy, you can add what you like and they are so good for you!!

    It’s going to be back up into the 90s here so all my fall-type recipes don’t sound so good this week! We have some steak and venison to grill though, so I’ll definitely be incorporating that into the week {my husband’s excited!}. :)
