Meal Plan ~ 7 Meals Under $2.00 Per Serving
While fall is upon us, there will still be lots of opportunities for grilling or grill type foods. Your family will love these beef kebabs and served with a side of rice or potatoes it will make a filling meal!
This is an easy and healthy one dish, meatless meal. The chickpeas are a great source of nutrition and add lots of flavor and texture.
Stew is one of our family’s favorite fall meals. It’s easy to put together, filling, and makes a great lunch the following day (if there is any left over). If you had left over meat and veggies from the kebabs on earlier in the week, you can add that right into the stew too.
These waffles are kind of like having breakfast for dinner but so much better! The ham and cheddar turns a normally sweet meal into something savory and hearty.
Potato soup is another family favorite. I love potato soup and will try it almost every time it’s available at a restaurant. I think I still prefer making it at home though. This is a great recipe that’s easy to make!
This is another really great, one dish meatless meal. It’s filling and different than your traditional casserole.
A lot of weekends, our big meal for the day is breakfast instead of lunch or dinner. This Sausage Breakfast Casserole is filling and packed with so much flavor. It’s also a great way to sneak in veggies if you have picky eaters who “don’t like veggies”.
