I'd probably get a bag of frozen chicken breast and make a few different chicken recipes. A couple bags of frozen veggies and some rice and beans.

If you have a slow cooker I'd get something for that. We always have leftovers for a couple of more days. Frozen chicken breasts, diced tomatoes, rice, beans

 Stretch your dollars with beans and pasta.  Both are relatively inexpensive and you can make a variety of meals with them.

pasta (spaghetti, rotini, elbows, etc.)
spaghetti sauce
rice
ramen noodle (I would get this a lot.....I don't now only because of medical condition of one of my dc)  I mixed corn into it or spaghetti sauce.
