Tortellini Soup with Sausage and Vegetables

A couple years ago I realized that food was one of our family’s great joys and pasttimes. I started experimenting in the kitchen, trying to make the most of our limited budget and still enjoy great food. In our newlywed days, we often spent $250/week to feed the TWO of us. Yes, we lived high on the hog.

Now, we live on less than that to feed eight of us! The result of my food obsession is Good Cheap Eats, my little corner on the web where I dish out delicious ways to act your wage.

  1. This has nothing to do with this, but I couldn’t find an email address for you…
    Do you have any books you would recommend for preschoolers that explain Thanksgiving? I was thinking that I could use a post about that soon… =)

  2. The tortellini soup looks and sounds delicious. I have chicken tort soup I make that is always a huge hit with my family. The rest of your recipes look great too 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
