Have you figured how much this will cost at the grocery store? ~Tami

No, but when I do my shopping, I could tell you how much it cost me. However, I am sure it will be much less than at the fast food & restaurants :) I will figure up in a minute a rough estimate. Now keep in minds, this will be dinners (and possibly lunches) only. This does not count Thxgvg day, breakfasts, desserts, and some lunches.

Ok, I left another post for you...go read it:)

We spend way too much on eating out. I want to start cooking more at home, but I also have to factor in that I don't have much time to spare. :)

If you don't have much time to spare, you could start off with soups and/or crockpot meals. They are easier to prepare.~Cherylann
