Large Family Good Eats on a Budget

We are a family of 7. We have allergies in our family so we do not eat dairy, eggs, or nuts. I compiled this list of simple and cheap meal ideas a little while back and thought that I would share it with you. I always focus on the protein.

Water is really important, but sometimes we are drawn to things …
