My cheap go to meals are :
Taco Mac&Cheese- 1 lb ground meat (turkey or beef), 1 onion, diced- Brown meat with onion and drain. Mix in 1 pack Taco Mix according to package directions. Make 2 boxes of mac&cheese according to package directions and then mix in 1 can diced tomatoes (Rotel work good) and 1 can of corn, drained and Taco meat. Mix and heat through. I usually had some shredded cheese to make it more cheesy.
Breakfast for dinner is cheap and filling too. Scrambled eggs, English muffins or toast and sausage or bacon. Pancakes are cheap and filling too.
I'm doing twice baked potatoes tonight. Baking the potatoes and scooping out the middles and mixing with butter, cheese, bacon and green onions and then putting them back in the skins and warming through. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Meal planning is soooo important! That way you aren't wandering around picking things up because you would 'probably eat that'
Spaghetti 1 jar with added 1 pound meat is cheap, I will also throw in some frozen spinach if we have some.
Breakfast for dinner: Eggs, toast/ jam and fruit. OR Breakfast burritos. ( A Jimmy dean skillet w/ tortilla's)
Quick and Easy Alfredo (Makes a TON of food!!)
Easy Taco Casserole: This particular recipe calls for Mayo or dressing. WE use Ranch and it is awesome!!
