    I made it out for pennies under $40! Family packs of ground beef are always cheaper than smaller, 90/10 ground beef was on a good sale AND I made it in early enough to get the markdowns from the weekend so I ended up with 4 lbs!!! Made chef salads last night as deli meats were on good sales from the weekend... kiddo cooks most Tuesdays so he will be making "life meat" a recipe he created :) its like a stroganough (sp) but made with cream of broccoli soup as he doesn't care for regular stroganough. Our non pasta eater spoons it over a baked potato instead :) Hubby cooks on Wednesdays (due to my work schedule) so its burgers, hamburger gravy with mixed veggies, and made to order "breakfast for dinner" of pancakes, waffles, eggs, etc on Friday as by then I should be able to sneak down for some bacon or sausage!

    Omlets, lean ground beef, whole grain breads or speltz bread (hard to find though). Cereal is cheap at Aldi's or Save a lot stores. Not sure what else you can do. good luck.

    Should have added in the post that I also have 2 people with special dietary needs for health reasons not personal choice... One can have no pasta, low fat, near vegetarian diet. The other needs high protein, very low carb and cannot have whole grains, nuts, seeds, most beans or "gassy" foods cooked veggies / fruits but has to be careful with fresh and no russet potatoes. Makes cooking a headache without the budget!!!
