Hi, Susie! :)

You menu plan provides proof positive that living the FTS lifestyle can be
done (in a very tasty way) without breaking the bank! ;D

Keep up the great work! ;)

Thanks Tony. I also go to the food bank. I give my chickens bread & old veggies I get, and keep all the beautiful fresh vegetables they give.

Made a mock Ratatouille with  Hot Louisiana Sausage! Wow was delicious! Lots of olive oil, soaked chopped & peeled eggplant, diced green bell pepper, minced garlic, chopped onion and chopped pieced of zucchini. Sauteed onion & garlic in oil till onion was soft. Added rest of veggies and more oil. Browned sausage in another pan, then added to veggies. Tasted so good!
Sorry I did not take a photo. Will make this again for sure, it's in my menu plan.

Thanks Umpa. I've got 2 whole chickens in the oven and Beef Spare Ribs in the crock pot now. The chickens were 79¢ lb and ribs $1.49 lb. I've cooked ribs In crock pot before and they turned out delicious. Have them on inverted empty tuna cans so they don't burn on bottom of crock pot.
Have the chicken livers & necks in water boiling on the stove. Will add skins & carcass to pan & boil down for broth.

I took all the meat off the chickens today. Total meat weighed 5 lbs plus 8 cups of broth. Not bad at 79¢ lb.

The ribs were a bit of a waste, only 6 oz meat, but keeping the fat to use in cooking & gave my large dog the bones.

I really have to continue to watch my cholesterol intake. There is so much new information on eggs, beef, chicken & pork fat not increasing cholesterol as once thought by older testing. I'm really not sure what to do within my low budget now.

In my house the rule is fresh food.I don't buy anything prepackaged.That way I know exactly what I am getting ;) Plus I have a garden,its small but I bring everything up from seed.Really cheap to do it that way. ;)
