  • If you like me get 2 loaves of bread OR brown rice. I would get one brown rice to make beans and rice at least 2 nights. A can of beans with 1/2 the rice and some peas or carrots along with some seasoning is good and filling. Grilled cheese with the bread. Get bananas with your veggies since they are cheap and stretch the dollar amount. Scrambled eggs and home made pancakes for dinner a couple of nights with some fruit. Beans can sub the meat in almost any casserole recipe.

  • Beans, for soups and stews. Go for dry beans for extended cost savings.
    Hot cereals, instead of cold cereals. Cheese and grits can do dinner. Oatmeal can go for cereal, cookies or even casseroles.
    Blocks of cheddar cheese instead of slices. Use as toppings on soup, stews and casseroles.
    Veggies, depends on who eats what. I'd recommend, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, garlic, green pepper, winter squash, and cooking greens.

    If you have flour, you can make home-made bread. Otherwise look for custard recipes for the milk and eggs.
