I agree with salads. We have that often as well.

We do veggies with grains.

We've been cutting back on groceries to save for our upcoming vacations.  We've managed to cut our grocery bill in half by building our meals around the grains and pastas that we already have in the house.

Fruit smoothies.

Homemade marinara and roasted veggie sauces.

I second this.  Anything that will stretch the budget, and going meatless a few nights a week is a good money saver if your family is inclined.
