    I think this is a fantastic thread I know it gets tricky when you get special eating requirments thrown in the mix (thankfully my family has avoided all of those to date) but I think the idea behind it is brilliant and also very lovely and sweet.

    Maybe some of the GF mumma's have some similar cheaper ideas that they use for tight weeks (eg it seems the coles sausages which are cheap do fall into the GF catagorey?!)

    Good point Ready to Run. I actually had a can of Coles Tuna (I think it was a 425 can) on my price list, but it had to be removed as it didn't fit into the $50 menu. For the record though, the Coles Tuna was $1.89 a can.

    Let's take the garlic bread off, and one of the pasta nights can be a tuna pasta night. And instead of garlic bread, we can have one slice of toast -to wipe up the sauce

    we make our own garlic bread, all you need is a clove of garlic (even the el cheapo jars of already crushed garlic are less than $2 and last months ) mix it with some melted butter and then toast the bread and butter under the griller we add in some oregano and rosmary but thats optional.

    for $3 (the cost of an average small pk of garlic bread) we can do a whole loaf of regular bread dressed up as garlic bread and the kids *love* it.

    This is such an awesome idea for a thread!! Should probably be made as a sticky so it doesnt get lost in cyber space..

    Iv been making a vegetable soup from fresh veges over the last few weeks for my dh.. You could really add which ever veges you want but it only costs me about $4.5 ( i dont even think it was that much tbh) and that feeds four people... If you got the veges on special it would be even cheaper! Or you could get double the veges and save half for another night...

    If YOu want the recipe just let me know

    Maybe if it is not too much trouble you could type up your vege soup recipe. There have been a few Vegetarians and Gluten Free posters who would probably find it very useful!

    Thanks!
