Works For ME Wednesday-Saving Money on Groceries

For two months now, I have been getting food from the Angel Food Ministries. I first heard about Angel Food as a tip on a Works For Me Wednesday and then I started hear ads on our local radio channel. You can go to there web page and see the menu for the month. I have really used this food and have only found one thing that I did not like. Anyone can get Angel food no matter what your income. You buy a basic box which is $25 for me, some area it is $30. After you buy the basic box, you qualify to buy specials. We recently got one full of chicken stuff. The basic box is suppose to be valued at $50-$75. So, it really is a good deal! Here is this weeks menu for my family. I have highlighted recipes that I am using Angel food in in red. As you can see, I use it in a lot of stuff, many that I would have cooked anyways. I also have included my recipes. Angel Food Ministry works for me to help my food budget!
Here is this week's menu for my family:

Separate biscuits. Each child needs 2 biscuits. For each bear place one whole biscuit on baking sheet. Cut the other biscuit in half. Now cut one of the halves into 2 pieces and make round balls with the dough and firmly press to top of head to make ears. With the other half, form round or oval shape for the nose. Press in raisins or chips for eyes and nose. Add 1/4 maraschino cherry to each ear. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on to give him the brown look and a cinnamon roll taste. Bake on a cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown. Enjoy with honey - a bears favorite treat!!!
