A Week of Recipes

K this will be a quick post but I just wanted to share something with you all!

Bryan and I are cracking down on our budget because as we roll into winter, he's pretty sure his sales numbers will be decreasing, meaning less commission, meaning less income.... meaning smaller budget. While having to "tighten our belts" is never a fun idea... I'm trying to find creative ways to save!

Well,  today I sat down in front of the TV to nurse Britany and clicked on The Nate Show (a total personal favorite :)) Nate was featuring a week of Mexican meals for $25! That's 5 different meals using 10 ingredients that you can purchase anywhere in the country for $25 bucks... um  hello! I'm all over it! I wrote up my shopping list today and I can tell you what will be on our menu next week.... MEXICAN! (how lucky for me that my husband is half-Mexican and therefore loooooooves Mexican food!)

I thought I'd share the link because I know I'm not the only one out there who likes to shrink their grocery bill! Here's the link with all the recipes!
