Trying to make dinner on a budget? Here are 10 weeks worth of really cheap meals for dinner!
Readers often ask for easy, budget-friendly dinner recipes here at The Frugal South. So today I’m sharing LOTS of recipes in one post!
For a year I shared my weekly dinner meal plan here on the blog. I made affordable, healthy, and easy dinners a habit, so now I have a huge collection of go-to dinners that I make regularly!
So here’s ten weeks’ worth of my favorite dinner recipes for really cheap meals. These recipes are perfect for my year of meal planning… I hope you find some inspiration for planning meals!
Really Cheap Meals: Week One
This week features some of my all-time favorite dinner on a budget recipes!
Don’t miss the Bean & Cheese burritos and Monterrey Chicken Skillet.
Spinach & Cheese Strata – Damn Delicious (I use this as a rough guide and add ham and red pepper)
Bean & Cheese Burritos – Money Saving Mom (I’m loading the freezer up with some for fast lunches)
Really Cheap Meals: Week Four
This weeks’ favorites include my Asian Veggie Peanut Noodles (add chicken if desired) and one-pot red beans and rice.
These recipes are easy to adapt to a vegetarian diet if needed.
Easy Sweet & Spicy Mexican Cole Slaw – Virtually Homemade (I would suggest cutting the amount of cumin in half – I wished I had)
Really Cheap Meals: Week Seven
My favorites this week include the cheesey chicken bacon ranch pasta (I leave out the ranch) and the pulled pork sliders, a regular in our house.
And my pumpkin zucchini bread is a year-round favorite here, not just in fall.
Butternut Squash, Crispy Kale and Fontina Pizza – Half Baked Harvest (Will simplify and make liberal changes to this recipe)
