Tightwad Tuesday


As part of planning for the new year I begin take stock of what is in the pantry, plan several weekly menus and try to get back on track in the kitchen. Using what I already have in my pantry saves money and time. Planning new to our family recipes gets rid of dinner time hum drum. I use the down time of Christmas break to plan and organize. I found several sites that helped me to get started.

Calculators to help plan a recipe for what you already have.

  2. The Christmas break from school is a great time to try and reorganize, isn't it??? My pantry can get awful crowded in the back :-( Need to get in there and see what I have and what I can make with it! Thanks for the reminder :-)
