The black Betty Crocker is in the building.

I am about as broke as they come right now, and I had to go to the store yesterday and get dinner to last us til Friday on $20. Okay, so I'm thinking to myself "how the hell are you going to pull this one off?" Luckily for me I remembered some of my white people inspirational tips about grocery shopping on a budget. I looked at what we had in the pantry and the freezer and came out the store with dinner for 4 days and only spent $19.67. Now tell me that ain't fly. And we ain't eating like Hamburger Helper either. We are have Shrimp Creole, Chicken Fettuccine, Beef Stroganoff, and Beef & Noodles (not necessarily in that order). That's four days worth of meals without a repeat except for lunch. And Farrakhan said that white people weren't useful. (Just kidding white people, don't be mad, I love y'all.)

I am the black Betty Crocker (or as I refer to myself, the BBC)! LOL! And we are having chocolate chip cookies for dessert one night too.

If you need a hook up on recession proof meal ideas...I'm ya girl!
