  • What do you have on hand already?
    Breakfasts: Eggs, homemade pancakes with brown sugar syrup, homemade muffins, oatmeal (not instant)
    Lunches: Tuna, egg salad, or PB & J sandwiches, hot dogs, soups/stews, leftovers
    Dinners: homemade sloppy joes, chicken legs & rice casserole, spaghetti (you can change it up by using leftover chicken & mushroom soup for sauce), hot dogs & egg noodle skillet dinner, hamburger goulash, chicken a la king over homemade biscuits, German potato salad, stir fry with frozen veggies instead of fresh, shepherd's pie to use up leftover meat & veggies, tuna noodle casserole, chicken & stuffing casserole...I have many more, plus recipes if you need them.
    With that kind of budget you HAVE to shop for store brand unless a coupon would get a name brand item for less. Buy ground turkey instead of beef. Do you have Aldi's or Save A Lot near you? Maybe not top quality food, but it'll feed your family for less.
