Stretch Your Food Dollar


On March 21, 2009, the Mothers' Union presented an event "Stretch Your Food Dollar" aimed at educating people on ways to make nutritious foods while keeping the costs modest. The session included a morning of instruction in making three kinds of soup: chicken-rice soup starting with bones to make broth; minestrone made mostly by combining canned and packaged foods; and Indian soup starting from a commercial soup mix. There also was a discussion on food safety and storage, and on protein sources other than meat. A highlight was the instruction on making dumplings for pea soup. The event was advertised widely and was attended by St. James parishioners and members of the broader community. It finished with a lunch, consisting of the soups made, along with fruit salad and fudge. In hopes of encouraging others to hold similar events, we have posted our notes and recipes here (The St. James Mothers' Union Recipe Book Copyright 2009)
