Menu Plan – 5 Meals for Less Than $50
Dairy Free Veggie Pizza $5
First up is a Dairy Free Veggie Pizza. Even if your family doesn’t suffer from dairy allergies or issues, it’s never a bad idea to cut out dairy once in a while (and since this week’s menu is pretty packed with cheese, this is probably a good idea). This veggie pizza won’t lack flavor even though it lacks cheese!
Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese $9
So I mentioned the cheesey line up for this week’s menu, right? Next on the list is my wife’s AMAZING Macaroni and Cheese in the Crock Pot. I’m pretty sure macaroni and cheese just doesn’t get any better than this. You can serve with salad or hotdogs but honestly, we can make a meal out of just the mac n cheese. You’ll want to make an extra big batch of this when you see the next menu idea.
Grilled Mac and Cheese Sandwiches $5
What is better than my wife’s Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese? These Grilled Mac and Cheese Sandwiches just might be better. Use up those left overs and make these sandwiches for a totally different kind of grilled cheese. They are great served with tomato soup or fries or just by themselves.
Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Texas Style $13
Here I go with the cheese again! Texas Style Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches are one of my favorites. These are easy to make and while they are a little more to make than some of our meal ideas, they’re still much less expensive to make at home than to order when out at your favorite steak house.
Southwest Stuffed Green Peppers $18
Last but certainly not least on the menu line up is Southwest Stuffed Green Peppers. With the meat, veggies, and rice all in one dish you’ll be satisfied with this as your main course. They are stuffed with great flavor!
