Breakfast for Dinner Night is always great and cheap.
Big Salad night is cheap, just top it with sliced chicken breasts or cold cubed ham.
BTW Cheap is all in the interpretation.... Think about this... Meat becomes a sidekick not a focus if you have more sides so stock the panty with generic quick sides... think outside the boxes... Say you buy a package of chicken drumsticks... Roast them in the oven and then serve them with Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Gravy, Salad and Fruit. Serves a family of 4 a lot of food for just over $6.
Package Chicken $3.00
Potatoes (1.29 box 1/3 to serve) $.41
Gravy Packet $.39
Salad ($.99 bag premade) $.75
Fresh Strawberries (2.89) $1.00
