with the price of everything going up we cant afford much as far as food goes. meat is pretty much chicken , chicken and more chicken. then there is hot dogs lol. i am so sick of chicken and hot dogs. there is only so mcuh a person should hae to take. we are doing alot of rice, beans too. plain rice, butter rice, rice with gravy. noodles too. butter noodles, ramen noodles, old style mac n cheese. we went to the store the other night cause my poor family of 4 begged for something different. i thought ok tacos are cheap. i got hamburger, tortillas, and cheese, sour cream that was it. i didnt even buy taco seasoning lol. it came up to 25.00it would of been cheaper to go to taco bell. i am starting to wonder if the gvt is trying to make it to where we have to eat fast food to be able to afford to eat. it is cheaper to go get a bag of chips and buger king whopper jrs then it is to buy hambuger and buns. dont even want to think if you want onion, tomato etc. i wish i could buy food at a resturant price lol. soon we will be living on fast food and the gvt will be complaining about our wieght and heart disease but yet they keep having prices rise on food cause of gas prices. ughhhhhhhhhhhhh

I've been living on a lot of beans. But, I've gotten to kind of like my beans with cheese added. Still, it's beans, beans, and more beans. Well, at least I'm getting plenty of fiber. lol

lol we are doing alot of beans too so i know what you mean. if chicken gets any higher it will be hot dogs and beans. in fact i am making great northern beans today for dinner. that and cornbread lol. soon though wont be able to afford the cornbread cause of the milk and egg that goes in it lol. i have been buying some bacon to go in the beans but that has gotten to high now so its just plain old beans lol

Yes. I am sick of eating canned goods, like sardines, corned beef, noodles, eggs, dried fish.They are all delicious but when got to eat it for every week you will get tired of chewing it. Like your stomach can't take it already also your brain is burned out thinking about the food and still not getting used to i. Oh my God! But what do we have to do, we have to save money, we have to do it just to save money. This problem because globally.

It is getting crazy. We are tired of the same thing all the time. We already were eating things that were cheaper and now it is really getting bad. There is only so many ways to make things.

We grow as much as we can then only buy foods that are on sale. We switched from ground beef to ground turkey (cheaper AND healthier). We have multiple veggies with meals and try to stretch our meats farther. For fast food, we stick to little Caesars $5 pizza!

I know what you mean. I now trying to figure out where I will get money to gather some food supplies. My husband is always talking about he is hungry. I told him, he thinks he is hungry now, just wait. I have no money for food. the rent is first priority, then have to pay the other bills in order to cook the food, electricity etc. I don't know, it is tough, and scary. I do a lot of chicken too. We finished the hot dogs the other day. My mom gave me peanut butter and jelly, that she got from a food bank, but I did not have bread. I am going to a picnic this afternoon, I told my husband he better eat all he can, and if possible to bring some home.
