My kids are in their 20s; so, it's hard for me to remember what I used to cook! These aren't probably the "cheapest" foods, but what my kids liked.

Grilled cheese & tomato soup (or grilled deli ham/cheese sandwiches)

BBQs or sloppy joes


Tuna casserole (per mac & cheese box directions, & throw in a can of creamed corn)

Breakfast for supper (pancakes, eggs, 99 cent sausage links, etc); had this every Wed. night b/4 confirmation classes because it was quick & easy!

Make your own omelets (kids liked a little cheese & diced ham in them)w/toast

Hot dogs or hot dogs wrapped in generic crescent rolls & baked

Chili or homemade soup

Fish sticks

My kids liked Idahoan brand/pouches of mashed potatoes, usually 99 cents

Egg salad sandwiches on toast

I'd buy small canned hams on sale at Walgreens, fork the meat apart, add salad dressing & make ham salad, serve it on toast, buns or crackers

Baked chicken(thighs/legs or breasts), rolled in Frying Magic or flour/seasonings served with baked potato done in the microwave

I used to write out the above meals on 3 by 5 recipe cards, and then plan out 7-10 days' worth of meals using the sale ads for the area grocery stores. That way I had the meals planned for a week or more & everything on hand to make the meals.
