  • Spagetti, chili, Japanese chicken salad (which is my crowds favorite and inexpensive to serve, but not necessarily a kids food choice), Soups.

  • Perfect Pasta-Ziti or pink sauce Jar bought- with meat balls.

    Pasta with alfredo sauce(store bought with your on additional flavors), and chicken baked (what ever is on sale just chop it up and add to the pasta).

    Yellow rice, with Enchiladas, my family loves it, you buy the big bag of enchiladas, lay them across a pan, add enchilada sauce- cheese, and bake for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes wala cheap and good.

  • loose meat sandwiches
    Put a large roast beef in a crockpot with an envelope of onion soup mix and a can of beer....cook all day and torwards the end of cooking cut up the roast some so it falls apart easier
    or fill a crockpot with a bag of frozen chicken breasts (yes frozen) add a big bottle of bar b q sauce and cook a 4 hours on high...cooking on high is needed to cook the frozen chicken and turns out wonderfully.
