Wow... two weeks since I last posted.

Sorry to the couple people that read this blog. ;-)

School is back in session, so my summer has ended.  Kids are back at school, and I am back at work.

I will be using my slow cooker ALOT more this year, so I will start posting the recipes I use.  Here is the one from yesterday.  It is always a hit at my house.  The only thing I change is that I do not add mushrooms, they are not liked in my house.

Ultimate Beef Stroganoff {Slow Cooker}

Tonight will be broccoli and beef stir fry over rice and Thursday will be a salad night.  That is all that is planned so far.

USDA Food Costs for June 2012

The USDA has put up their numbers for June.  For our family the monthly cost that the government thinks we should be spending on their "thrifty" plan is $763.13.  WOW, that is more than I spend, but a long shot.

I have not calculated their other levels, I am not sure I can handle it. LOL
