Good couponers know that when you learn to shop right, you can eat well on almost any budget! One of my best friends taught me that–that just because I was being frugal, didn’t mean I had to eat junk.
I want to reccommend you check out a great new blog, Modern Home Cooking. My friend writes it, and she is generally known amongst all of our acquaintances as the best cook we know. There is never a shortage of people wanting to eat at her home! (Add in that she’s a lively redhead who many of us love dearly, and you’ve got a recipe for a great time!) She doesn’t cook ‘fancy’ food. There’s nothing unrecognizable or unpronounceable in what she cooks. But we never leave her home without feeling like we’d just eaten one of the best meals of our lives!
She’s a foodie, without being a snob. A wine afficianado without all the swirling and sniffing. She’s frugal without being cheap. And one heck of a great lady. If you’re looking for some new ideas for dinner, check her blog out. And if you’re making up that menu plan I’m always prattling on about–definitely check her out!
