    I have a cheap and yummy snack great for school lunches.

    Rice bubble and marshmallow slice.

    Melt butter and a packet of pink and white marshmallows in a saucepan

    Pour into a large bowl, mix in rice bubbles (usually a few cups) Press into a slice tray and chuck in the fridge for a few hours. Once hard and cold....cut into slices.

    Warning! Very delicious and hard to stop at 1!!

    We love salmon morney in our house (you could use chicken instead if you don't like salmon).
    Simple white cheese sauce:
    1-2 tbl spoons butter or marg melted in saucepan
    Add 1-2 tbl spoons of plain flour
    Stir constantly until flour incorporated
    Add milk a little at a time stiring constantly until you have about 2 cups.
    Bring to boil. Take off heat and add good handful grated cheese and tin of drained pink salmon.

    Pour over precooked spiral noodles (approx 500g) into ovenproof dish sprinkle with bit more cheese and bake for about 25mins.

    This is a great dinner or lunch meal and I make it and have for dinner then Freeze kid sized portions and end up with about 6-8 small bowls which are awesome for those nights the kids are tired and need a quick easy dinner.

    Costs about $6 to make

    At the start of the fortnight I usually make a couple of things for ds' lunches during the week... I also freeze some of each so that I always have something healthy on hand for him. He can feed himself both dishes with his hands (we are working on cutlery) and both are quite cheap meals.

    Tuna pasta - cook small spiral pasta, add a tin of tuna, tin peas & corn, sometimes i add grated veggies like carrot and zuccini, then mix through either cream cheese spread or a home made cheese sauce.

    I also do a mince & lentil rice dish.
    Fry mince in a little garlic and chuck in some herbs. I use whatever veggies are on hand. Add a tin of lentils to mince and a tin of tomatoes. Cook rice as directed and mix together.

    Between these meals, ds ALWAYS has something healthy even if dh & I are having something less nutritious!

    I find that a really easy way to save on groceries and still eat well is to plan your meals and use your leftovers.

    Here's a sample of what I've started doing:

    Dinner 1: Roast Dinner (beef)

    Dinner 2: Cafe-style Roast Beef, Pumpkin & Caramalised Onion Open Sandwiches with Honey Mustard Dressing

    Dinner 3: Beef Stew

    Dinner 4: Pork Sausage Curry

    Dinner 5: Pork Sausage & Mushroom Risotto

    Dinner 6: Risotto Stuffed Capsicums & Sweet Corn

    Dinner 7: Pumpkin Soup with Cheesy Turkish Croutons

    Shopping List


    $15 - 1.5kg roast beef
    $8 - 8 free range pork sausages
    $5 - small bag potatoes
    $2 - bag carrots
    $3 - bag onions
    $2 - 2 cobs corn
    $4 - pumpkin
    $4 - 2 broccoli florets
    $4 - 300g mushrooms
    $3 - 2 lge red capsicums
    $1 - garlic
    $3 - bag frozen peas
    $4 - 2L chicken stock
    $2 - sour cream
    $5 - Turkish pide

    Total = $65

    Things like rice and curry powder I always have in the cupboard, so I don't include them. I know this menu is only really for two adults, but you could probably pad it out pretty easily to feed one or two little mouths as well

    Wanted to share a yummo food we had tonight.

    All from Aldi.

    * Sundried Tomato pasta bake sauce
    * Three rashers bacon
    * Spaghetti
    * One onion
    * Cheese.

    While cooking the spaghetti, dice the bacon and onion and cook in saucepan. Add pasta sauce to saucepan, simmer on low heat for 10 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked and ready.

    Drain spaghetti, add back to pot, dump bacon/onion/sauce mix into, add cheese {and 1/2 cup cream if you want it creamy instead of tomatoey}, cook for about a minute on high heat, always stirring, until heated through and cheese is melty.

    Serve.

    Cost us about $5 all up and we've gotten three meals out of it.
    Hubby is addicted to it.
