PMM #1 {{{Hop & linky}}}

**These can be FUN MEALS or INDIVIDUAL dishes to add on the linky! And it doesn't have to be like $3 cheap--just a dish that is fairly inexpensive!**

So this is something I've decided to start on my blog. PENNY-MEAL MONDAY. Don't you even have that night when its the day before pay-day, and there is nothing to cook? I always have these meals on hand in case that happens. I always have the ingredients. And if I don't, I can scrape up money from the couch cushions and get. Hence the name: Penny Meals.

~~I'm looking for some co-hosts for this linky next week. If interested, please leave comment so I can get in touch with you!~~ 

Cookin' for my Captain

Here is one of my favorites. I have many, so please check back next week for another one! Who knows when you might need it to save the day.
Pasta Roni: (10/$10 sale) = $1.00
Can veggie: $0.75 [corn is just what I had tonight, but any family fav veg will work!]
Polish Kielbasa Sausage: (huge value pack was $6, split into normal portions) = $1.50
TOTAL: $3.25 for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children)

How do I make this? 
Pasta: according to directions (5 minutes)
Sausage: Cut in sections, then in half. Spread BBQ sauce over it and cook on grill, or grill pan.
Veggie: Drain, dab with butter and garlic salt and pop into microwave for 2 minutes.
[variations: mac-n-cheese instead of pasta]

Some might think this is retarded, but it has saved me so many times. And my kids gobble this up like their life depends on it.

I think this is a great idea. I'll have to find more of mine as the weeks go by...

Great idea. We all need some frugal meals with this dreadful economy that just doesn't get any better, while the price of everything soars.

Are you looking for entire meals, individual dishes, or either? I see some of both are linked up. Thanks for hosting a new blog hop, Carolyn.
