  • I cook most nights but at least once a week we have leftovers. I do scrambled eggs and toast when money is tight.

    I also do Taco Mac&Cheese. Brown 1 pound hamburger meat, drain, mix in taco seasoning and simmer. Meanwhile, make 2 boxes mac&cheese according to the directions. Mix a can of diced tomatoes and corn in with the mac&cheese. Warm through. Add the hamburger and some extra shredded cheese.

  • We have had cereal for dinner before but only when we had a heavy lunch and are not very hungry.
