Frugal Friday: Cheap Dinners

I'm joining up with Jessica over at LifeAsMom for today's Frugal Friday. Why don't you join us!!
One thing that has helped save on my family's grocery bill each week is to plan a cheap meal or two into your menu. Here are just a few of the meals we love and that are very economical.
1. Red beans and rice with Polish Sausage
2. Beans and cornbread
3. Creamy Chicken Noodle
4. Breakfast for Supper
5. Vegetable Soup (I keep a bag of leftover veges in my freezer just for this meal)
6. Cheesy Potato Soup
7. Baked Potato
8. Cobb Salad (this is a cheap meal in the summer when the garden produce is coming off)
9. Stir -Fry
10. Fried Rice with or without chicken

Sounds good...those are meals we like to eat often. The cobb salad is an exception-I'll have to try that! Hopefully we'll have a garden of some sort this year:)

The black beans, rice and rotel sound great!! We will have to try that soon.
