Like a lot of people, I've become very budget conscious lately, especially when it comes to grocery shopping and meal planning.
This book offers some good, although not really unusual meal planning tips for the budget gourmet.
Easy recipes and there were a few surprises. I only wished there had been slightly more interesting recipes, as these seemed rather pedestrian for the most part.
