I am a stay at home mom with 2 young children, one 3 and one 5 months old. We are on a really tight budget. We have the ordinary foods like pork chop, chicken (just chicken leg and thigh quarters, good chicken is too expensive)and hammburger. I am not a good cook and everything is starting to get old. We are tired of eating my cooking! Please help us anyone!!!

You can always change the meal by including rice to it. I also make potatobake which gives the meals a different style. I just slice the potatoes then boil them. Once they are cooked I put them into a oven proof dish and pour cream over it. I add a slice of bacon which has been diced up them put a bit of grated cheese on top. Bake it for about 15 minutes. It's a cheap easy alternative to the usual mashed potatoes and tastes great also. You can also put different types of gravy on your meats too.
