Things are a little tight here financially. We are soon to take delivery of our new caravan which is very exciting but our car has done it's head gasket. Looking at around $4K!!!! Which we didn't plan for. So until christmas we have had to cut our budget back, right back! My shopping budget has had to be cut by $100 a fortnight too.
So the other day I sat down and quickly came up with a list of super frugal meal ideas that we can use. Some aren't too nutritious like canned spaghetti on toast, but those meals will be intermingled with vegie ladened ones so won't be too bad.
This is the list I came up with:
Savoury mince with rice or mash (curried as an option)
Rissoles and veg
Chow Mein and rice
Mine and veg pasta bake
Burgers - Nannas BBQ Patties
Slow Cooked Sausage Casserole
Toad in the hole
Mac n Cheese
Chicken and dumplings
Honey baked pieces
Fish fingers and veg
Meat pie and veg
Eggs on toast
Canned Spaghetti on toast
Special Baked Beans
Quiche (a variety of different veg as fillings)
That's 33 different meals, so I'm sure we can find enough variety in that if planned out well.
What are your super frugal (at least under $10 for 4 people) meal ideas?
