Here are two of our cheap meal ideas

1 package (16 oz) of noodles (any kind of noodles work)
2 cans of tuna ( we use leftover chicken too. debone & go)
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of peas

cook noodles and mix all the stuff together and heat.

0.99 for noodles
2/ 1.00 for tuna
2/ 1.20 for soup
0.50 peas

$$$ 3.69 total!
This will feed a family of five with leftovers

Another idea for a filling side dish is...

2 cups (16oz) of elbow noodles
1 can of diced tomatoes
a little bit of sugar to sweeten

cook noodles and mix

Kids love these dishes. Even the picky eaters ;-)

Good luck

P.S. I had a friend that worked at W.I.C. and they have some good cheap meal ideas. You might check there.
