Ten Budget-Friendly Summer Recipes

Summertime means kids are home and they are constantly hungry. At my house, the pantry and fridge doors get an extensive workout in July and August. My guess is that yours do too!! We all watch the news and understand that inflation is at an all-time high. I try to pay attention, but recognize that I only can change what is in my control. For me, that is our family budget. And aside from our mortgage, our food budget is our biggest expense. Well, today I have searched Pinterest and linked ten budget-friendly summer recipes.

These recipes are favorites that I have come back to time and time again. For me, a recipe needs to be quick, easy, and budget-friendly. There is nothing like having a quick and easy plan for your evening meal!
