I apologize ahead of time, but are you really telling me this recipe feeds all of your teens, you and your husband? Although it looks like a great recipe, I would need to triple it ( at least the meat) and double the vegies to feed my three adult teen growing boys and teen daughter. I just do not see how this recipe will feed all of them, which leads me to believe this isn’t very realistic with the 125.00 budget amount. Even if I purchased meat on sale I can’t see how tripling this recipe, which is what I would need to do, would get me within the budget amount.

I am just so frustrated with miracle moms who say they can stay within such a low amount and then put out a recipe that won’t really feed a family of six. Don’t get me wrong, I think the recipe looks great, but my growing teens would eat more than just one and a quarter wrap.

Signed,
A very frustrated Mom who REALLY wants to lower her costs

Hi Jenent! First of all I am very sorry that you feel frustrated – that is not my intention at all. Secondly this is a base recipe using 1 pound of meat so it is easy to multiply. This week I am using a 2.38 pound package of thin sliced carne picada that was marked down to $7.63 at Walmart. It was purchased a couple of weeks ago and is in my freezer. I will use 3 green peppers and two red onions and I will serve tomato cucumber salad and possibly rice along with it. If anyone is still hungry they can eat a peanut butter sandwich.

A couple of things to think about: (1) As you begin to consistently make a specific menu plan each week and base it on what you already have on hand and what is on sale, you will begin to see your grocery bill drop; (2) it takes time so start with a small decrease in your budget and be excited about any improvement you can make. Also prices do vary greatly so you may not find the deals that I find. My point is not to say that everyone can or should feed their family for $125 a week, but that most people can decrease their budgets with a few changes. You can read more of my tips here: http://thepeacefulmom.com/save-money-on-groceries/. Let me know if you have questions. I would be happy to help. :)
