  • I was going to say breakfast- you can do waffles, french toast, pancakes, hashbrowns, eggs, with some cut up fruit.
    Spaghetti is always cheap and easy too.
    I also like the frozen ravioli that they sell at WalMart- my kids love them. If you don't put sauce on them, they can eat them with their fingers. A bag is only about $2.50.
