Easy, budget friendly meals.

I am honestly writing this post so I can "pin it" as a "go-to" for when I make my Sunday night meal planning list.  Sometimes I feel like...I know I cook, but for the life I of me I can't remember what I cook.  I wrack my brain for meal ideas and I can't come up with anything besides toast and cereal.  So I am writing down 20+ "go-to" meals that are SUPER easy, SUPER fast, and SUPER budget friendly so that come Sunday night, I can head over to my "dinner recipes" board and come up with a budget friendly meal plan for the week.

* Spaghetti with tomato & basil sauce, salad, & garlic bread
*Penne pasta tossed with sun dried tomato pesto, (or basil pesto) and pea's.  Serve with salad and garlic bread
* Spaghetti Pie, salad & garlic bread
*Mac N' Cheese (homemade & boxed)

*Home made pizza (with tomato pizza sauce, or pesto)
*Pizza bagels
*pizza English muffins
*Pizza muffins

*Vegetarian Taco's
*Mexican beans & rice
*Vegetarian Enchilada's

Breakfast for Dinner
