I have decided that we spend too much on food, but I am stuck in our current rut of the 10 or so meals I prepare.

I roast my chicken in the crock pot in the summer.

I find buying healthier foods are more expensive than buying junk. Sad as I could get double the amount of food if I bought junk-lol!!

We eat meat most of the week so I can't help you there. Sorry :(

I am open to recipes with meat, as we eat it 3 or so times a week.

We usually BBQ most of our meat. If you like turkey burgers, I have a really good recipe. I would have to find it later though as I don't have it on me.

BBQ your meat as in BBQ sauce? Or BBQ your meat as in cook it on the grill?
