Tightening the purse strings

Since our move we have come to realize just how much we benefited from growing our own garden and raising our own meat. I cannot fathom how one free range chicken can cost $25. Prices like this have shocked us, it has meant that our purse strings and budget have been working hard! Luckily, I am no stranger in feeding my family healthy and economically.
This was our latest meal, two days worth of leftovers which included a bit of pork chop, some homemade macaroni cheese with beans and roasted vegetables. I added some additional mushrooms, onion and garlic to the dish. Then, some mild curry paste and a couple of tablespoons of yogurt were added. Served on a nice thick piece of homemade brown bread.
