Frugal Meal List


Hey Guys.  I found an old document that had a list of frugal meals that I have made over the years.  I decided to add to it and link a bunch of recipes.  I am still working on the links, but I thought I would share what I have!  Some of these recipes are from recipe books, so obviously I can’t share that online.  Some of it is stuff that I throw together every time, but I haven’t written it out on here.  Let me know if you’re interested in something!
