Trying to eat cheap: A Month of Dinners, Day 2

Tonight was whole wheat macaroni & cheese with steamed broccoli. There was a lot of mac & cheese left over. The pasta & sauce ingredients probably cost around $10.00 total. The broccoli was a gift, but if it was purchased I'd guess around $3.00. So that's a $13.00 meal. We'll also get a lunch out of it some other day.

Note on the mac & cheese--I used a "Cooking Light" recipe that had no butter or oil. I was supposed to use low-fat cream cheese as well (I did) and low-fat cheddar (I did not). It wasn't as cheesy as I would have liked, but the sauce had crushed garlic, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire in it, so I'll keep the recipe around to riff on some other time.
