If you have a big family, then you have a big grocery bill. Figuring out how to feed half a dozen or more people every single day without breaking the bank can be a huge challenge.
The folks at Big Family Homestead are very familiar with this challenge. Over the years they’ve come up with several meals that can feed about ten people, and each meal only costs five dollars or less. And we’re not talking plain ole beans and rice. These are meals that even the kids like.
