Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~

I am certain we have several as the grocery bill is always the first to get edited when money is tight.

We have veggie stir fry:
1# chicken breasts ($2)
1 bag frozen stir fry veggies ($1.09)
1 box of stir fry flavored rice ($1.29)

I am sure you can figure out the directions here

We also love BBQ cups:
3/4# hamburger ($1.25)
1/2 jar BBQ sauce (or 1/2 can sloppy Joe sauce) ($1)
1 can of biscuts ($1)
1/2 chunck shredded cheese ($1)
1 can corn ($.50)

Cook hamburger meat, add BBQ sauce OR Sloppy Joe sauce
Line muffin tin cups with biscuits
Add hamburger mixture to biscuit cups
Top with cheese
Cook at 350 for about 15 minutes or so
Serve with corn on the side

Both of those recipes serve 2 adults, 1 tween and 1 chld w/ leftover for dh's lunch
