All about feeding our little foodies

The meal plan before payday – The one where we are broke and spend no money!

This week we are broke – literally broke!  We have ordered our new kitchen units, dishwasher and fridge freezer which is so exciting but it means that the week before pay day we are spent up.  We have plenty of food in the cupboards and freezer so I am using that to feed our family this week (it will also help to have our cupboards as empty as possible before we rip them out next weekend)
