Heather, it sounds like canning/freezing time, big time! For hamburger, which is usually pretty expensive at times I think, I've started buying any other cut of beef When on sale under $2/lb., and having the butcher grind it. I'm not sure why I never thought of that before. It normally has to be before 6 PM when they clean up the grinder though.

Foodtown has specials on pork butt roast - 88 cents a pound. I got a fantastic roast for $5.29 today - at least 5 pounds cooked meat.

Medium pork ribs were $1.49 for very meaty ribs, so DH got 4 pounds. Ground beef was about $2.19 a pound.

Eggs - $1.90 for 18.
Cheese - $3 a pound on sale.
Just add garden veggies and tons of food.

If I only had $20 for the week, I'd buy two pounds of Laura's Lean Ground Beef ($9), one pound of cheese ($4) and I'd buy 5 dozen eggs ($7).

I am having to do this again this year. Joy Joy! I will be so glad when the economy comes back!!! Winter time it always slows down and no bonuses in sight until at least spring.

Here is what I bought at Walmart today:
(I did buy a $7 gingerbread house kit, but I am not counting that towards my grocery budget. It's for my friends little girl when I watch her Christmas Eve.)

Half & half quart-$1.73
3 cans of Black Olives-$4.38
2 bottles of Lipton Diet Green Tea-$2.49
Pint of grape tomatoes-$1.76
1 lb. LOL White American Cheese-$4.99

Total was $15.35. I had lettuce left over from last week that I bought on sale and had a coupon for. So my salads are done for the week, and I have frozen hot dogs, chicken breasts and hamburger to use for the week along with frozen broccoli and green beans to use.

Not Rhonda but it's a strained yogurt. Also called Greek Yogurt. A brand of this would be Fage.

You can make your own by putting cheesecloth or paper towels in a strainer suspended over a bowl and putting the plain yogurt in it to drain. It makes it nice and thick like sour cream. It's really good and filling.

I am not seeing many vegetables in most list, you do know you need to eat vegetables right?

36 Count Eggs ---------------------------------1.99
1 Lg Container Mixed Baby Greens---------------3.89
2 Cans Italtian Cut Green Beans ----------------2.00
2 Bags Slaw Mix -------------------------------2.98
1 Jar Mayo ------------------------------------2.00

12oz Bottle Ranch -----------------------------1.89

Edit: Hah, I just noticed I had already posted in this thread in August. My food choices have changed a bit lately. Mostly I have been on a grilled chicken breast and coleslaw kick lately.

I mean, everyone knows that latinum is a rare silver liquid used as currency by the Ferengi Alliance and many other worlds. But, vegetables? I'm clueless.
