(i make a simple garlic toast by mixing butter, salt and garlic in the bowl and spreading on toast)
- Corn Fritters
Make a batter like you would for pancakes (minus the sugar) add a can corn, salt, pepper and Fry up.

Use Cabbage to bulk it up, capsicum, broccoli, peas etc etc and Rice obviously.

Flat breads (aldi has packs for around $1-2)
Falafel ball mix ( in the health food section at supermarket)
Tub of tzatki or hommus.
Cook up falafel balls and fold in a wrap with other ingredients.
- Taco wraps
Similar to falafels but we use vegetarian mince cooked with some taco flavouring with...
Wrap breads, lettuce, cheese, tomato's,cucumbers, red onions, taco sauce and baked beans flavoured with taco flavouring aswell.
We serve this on the table for the kids to build their own and they love it.
- Pasta with Lentil bolognaise.
I use red lentils and add to the pasta sauce when cooked and its yum.
We have just been through 6 months of hardship, struggling to put food on the table for the 7 of us...so here's a few cheap meals we survived on.
Homebrand family meat pie and heaps of mashed potatoes
Chicken burgers (shop at night when the breadrolls are marked down)
Spag bog/ beef maccoroni...(beef mince is cheap at coles and aldi)
Nachoes (when the ingredience is on special)
Chicken wings- marinated with home made fried rice
When chicken breast is on special I like the chicken tonight jars and with the indian meals I serve with papadums
sausages and vegies
HotPot (casserole with rice)
3 for $10 pizzas at woolies (I also go to aldi for their $5 cold meats and add more toppings-mushrooms, capsicum, pineapple etc)
Homebrand garlic bread (aldi one is yumm)
fish, homebrand steak chips and salad
Roast (whatever is on special) on those bake at home breadrolls with gravy
Breakky.... Toast and cereal (homebrand weetbix)
Lunches...cold meat (from aldi) and salad rolls or spreads, fruit.
snacks...popcorn from woolies (12 bags for $3 aprox)
buiscuts and dip from aldi
I made quite a lot of damper with butter and jam
Puff pastry with vegemite and cheese or (my sons fav) nutella
