How to feed a family of 7 on $300-400 per month

One lady's blog on how she feeds a family of 7 for $300-400/month, depending on season (less in winter apparently).

This is of interest to me as I also have a family of seven, but I have 2 teens and a tween, all boys and they Eat A Lot, plus 2 small girls, and 2 adults. However, her meal plans are different than mine, and I like having new meal ideas.

Intriguing! Also the blog is funny. I bookmarked it.

I was expecting a mostly vegetarian menu. I was sort of right.. I saw lots of dinners with pasta and beans. There is some meat here and there though.
