Just sauce and noodle's, no meat. The kids eat it and its cheap. Also, grilled cheese, hotdogs, chicken patties on buns, hamburger and noodles, rice and anything, sandwiches, soup, mac and cheese with hamburger in it, beans and cornbread, collard greens and bread.
Spaghetti and garlic bread. Nothing fancy--just regular sandwich bread with butter, a little salt and perhaps a little cheese (parm or moz) and a sprinkly of garlic. Even if I throw in a little ground meat, it's still pretty cheap. But then, there are only two adults and a toddler in my home, so we're not really expensive to feed!
beans and rice/rice and beans
Spaghetti---I make a ton of meatballs at one time and freeze them so adding
a meatball or two per person is still pretty cheap

Today we had homemade pancakes, 2 eggs stretched for 3 people, and a few slices of bacon. Dessert was fruit. Super frugal. I'm saving my stockpile of chicken and pork roast for when my inlaws come for 10 days in October. Every year I make elaborate menus, etc. for when they come over. This year it's easy...we're simply going to have to have what is in the freezer!!
