I will definitely add some recipes
for you, A family of 7!! Wow, that is a big one. My husband was one of 7 kids
and then his parent, so 9 people. His mom sure made the budget spread out!!
I think one thing with kids that is important is food they'll actually eat. Do you ever do anything like substitute ground chicken for ground beef? That has really helped me stay more to the lean meats while pleasing my kids with things like spaghetti for dinner (which you can spread a long way).
