$5 meal for a family of 4

Easy-peasy Goulash

1 lb of hamburger (browned) - bought on sale for $1.87/lb
1 cup of elbow macaroni (bought large package on sale for $3 - estimate I get 20 meals out of it) $.15

1 tablespoon chopped onion - bought for $.68 - chopped & frozen ahead of time - $.08

1 can Tomato Sauce - $.48
1 can Chopped Tomatoes - $.59
1 can Stewed Tomatoes - $.69

Pinch of Paprika - $.06

Throw it all in a pot with a can of water & bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer & cook for 10 minutes.

Easy & simply-flavored to please the boys... one of my go-to meals that I make almost every two weeks.

Served with Corn on the side - $.48

Total for a meal for four $4.40 - and we all usually have two helpings each plus have a little leftover to take for lunch future meals. Freezes extremely well.
