Fried rice! Leftover rice, an egg or two, and leftover veggies of pretty much any kind, with some soy sauce in there for saltiness. Yum!

Homemade pizza- I make a double batch of dough every other week and freeze half, so we have pizza once per week. Doesn't use much sauce, the most expensive thing is the cheese, but I buy the big bag and it lasts quite a while! Toppings vary and are usually pretty inexpensive also.

Do you make your own dough? If so, could you share your recipe?

Soup.

Whenever we do a whole chicken I boil up the leftover/carcass and make broth which I freeze.....so essentially the broth is free.

I use the broth and toss in whatever leftover veggies we have in the fridge (usually onion, corn, beans, celery, carrot) any leftover chicken we have and noodles. Add seasoning to taste. In the last part of the cooking we toss some dumplings (made from Bisquick) on top and allow them to cook. Its filling and tasty and even the kids will eat it.

Another favorite is to use the broth, add a jar of salsa, some chicken, a can of corn and a can of black beans and a handful of rice. Boil until rice is soft. Serve with shredded cheese and nacho chips.
