Will you eat rice? I made veggie fried rice for about $5 and if DH ate like a normal person it would easily feed 4-6. Or bean burritos are cheap. Do you make homemade pizza and nuggets? Buying meat in bulk helps

I deleted it and just remembered I did haha sorry. Usually meats, pasta, and a veggie for one meal and then sandwiches and chips for the other meal (while at work).

I don't make homemade pizza and nuggets. Is it a lot cheaper?

Depends honestly. For nuggets, no. pizza sometimes. I love deep dish french bread pizzas. Shopping sales really helps me but I'd be lost without Aldi.

And my Mom used to shop Aldi's growing up when we lived in Missouri. I miss it. We don't have one in Colorado. I do go to Save-A-Lot though quite often for some of the canned goods, etc.



Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas :)

Maybe try mini bagel pizzas....see if your LO makes their own pizza by choosing the toppings if they will eat it.

You can also use a whole grain english muffin or biscuits

My DD is obsessed with small pizzas so I have been looking for wheat mini bagels. LOL She says if she wanted to make a big pizza she would have asked to get the pizza circle (that is what she calls our pizza stone). She has the attitude of a teenager and the innocence of a 5 year old. :)
