Shrimp Fried Rice
Even the cheapest restaurant eats can add up fast, so the next time you’re craving Chinese takeout, cook up some fried rice yourself! Low in cost and high in flavor, it’s also a great way to use up whatever you’ve got in the fridge.
Pasta with Roasted Vegetables and Tomato Sauce
Made with affordable — and fresh — ingredients like tomatoes, eggplant, and onions, this kid-friendly dish is a convenient go-to when you can’t figure out what to do with all that spaghetti in your pantry.
Lemon Grilled Chicken
Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to retire the barbeque (just throw on a sweater!). This zesty recipe uses lemons and cayenne for a budget-friendly marinade that adds some kick to the old weeknight standard.
At less than $2 per dozen, the incredible, edible egg is an über-cheap source of protein. Add in some salsa, black beans, and kale to make this classic Mexican breakfast hearty enough to dish up for dinner.
