I am in the middle of a cross-continental road trip. I am in stretch of working 12 days in a row which includes two long days of flying. The travel is compounded by a severely deviated septum which means I come down with a sinus infection after 1 out of every 3 or 4 flights. This trip is the one – I am stuffed beyond acceptable limits.
Despite the long stretch, the cold and long days on the road, I am thrilled with this trip. I have learned a lot and am coming home a better person for it – both in regards to new skills and perspective.
The travel does make updating the blog a little challenging – I am at ac conference that has activities which consume 10-14 hours per day. It makes features like Cheap Tuesday Gourmet a challenge. But a challenge is merely a game in disguise so I`ve decided to make wine from these sour grapes and use todays post to feature great resources for cooking and eating affordably that we`ve found online. Here`s a few:
Cheap Healthy Good – a 5-day a week blog that features recipes, seasonal ingredients and ideas for eating well and cheap.
CheapCooking.com – menu planning, education, recipes and techniques.
YumYum.com (students) – 20,000 student recipes to learn from and share
Recipe Street – Simple recipes. Period.
Healthy Cheap Food – different link than our first but premise is the same.
NetMums – cooking on a budget – general tips on shopping, planning and cooking better.
Frugal Meals for Big Families – Cooking affordably for the big family (i.e. 6 people).
Any other sites out there our community needs to know about? Would love to hear your ideas…
