What are some cheap dinner ideas you and your family likes?

I'm feeling like cooking something different and I'm sure a lot of us could stand to save a couple bucks somewhere.

  • most definitely...we have to save money at every possible turn! I like to have plenty of chicken breasts, ground pork, roaster chickens and random meats on hand. Along with that I like to have plenty of veggies, pasta, rice, potatoes and beans. So with that I can easily make a roasted chicken with veggies and potatoes, breaded chicken breasts, spanish rice and beans with any assortment of meats. Whats great to do too is buy pizza crust and make pizza. I utilize my freezer and buy in bulk when I get a good bargain on meats or veggies so I'm always prepared to make anything from beef stew, stir fry, spagetti...anything.
