Watching those pennies
Pennies are tight these days, so I have to come up with some other alternative. Tack on his dietary issues and its not so easy. Hopefully, though I have found some options. Last night I also purchased a beef roast and some potatoes. I put the roast and the potatoes in the crock pot and this morning they were ready to be pureed. After completing this task I realized that I will need more Tupperware and a bigger freezer, I was able to make up 12 portions! So that is compared to the $1.00 jar of meat and the $1.50 of vegetables that would be needed to fill him up. The roast cost $5 and the potatoes were free (compliments of my good friend John's garden!) so i believe this is a SCORE! Hopefully I can do this three times a week, alternating between meals to try and spice it up for the little man! It will only be a test of my planning skills!
