    filling ground meat its definitely something i need to read up on. even though i typically find it for $1.50 or less, it would still help to stretch it. after all its just going into spaghetti, chili, or something similar.

    Thanks for sharing this. Like the above commentor, I was aware of the meat fillers. Right now, I’ve just been cutting down on the amount of meat used in a recipe.

    I found your site today on Frugal Friday. I love how you’re “recession proofing.” We hear so much doom and gloom, but not enough on how to overcome. This is inspiring!
