  • In the same boat with yall!! We do alot of sandwiches, oodles of noodles, angel hair pasta with butter, chicken breast on the grill, (i buy bulk at Sams Club), grilled cheese and soup, pancakes, egg salad, deviled eggs. I try not to use the stove too much because it really heats our house up!

  • I spent under $200 for 7 people to eat for the past 4 weeks. We had things like Chicken alfredo (spaghetti, chicken breast, make a cream cheese based sauce), hamburger goulash (elbow mac, tomato soup, 1 can diced tomatoes, ground beef, bit of onion), tacos (use salsa to top them with & you can get by w/o tomatoes, lettuce, taco sauce), Bruschetta chicken (cubed chicken breast, stuffing mix w/can of tomatoes & spices, topped with mozz cheese), hamburger stew (ground beef browned with flour, add diced onion & celery & sliced carrots, can of green beans) with biscuits or muffins, teriyaki chicken (chicken breast cut into strips, browned in oil, topped with homemade teriyaki sauce over rice), ham & potatoes (sliced potatoes, bit of diced ham, cr of mushroom soup, cheddar cheese) & numerous other good meals. I do this regularly on a low budget. I have more ideas & recipes if you'd like some.
