You already have these listed, but homemade pizza is my go-to meal for things I already have on hand. To try something new, if you have tortillas on hand, make some quesadillas. Your kids can add their own cheese, veggies, salsa, whatever you have on hand. Or else some fun/different grilled sandwiches make a good frugal meal, too. Use up some leftover meat (i.e. ham or turkey) or some deli meat, cheese, veggies, spreads, whatever. Everyone can make their own. (My favorite is turkey, cheese, ranch dressing and jalepenos. Yummy!)

Way to go on your budget goals - you are inspiring!

Really depends on what is in my fridge...but you already have two of them on your menu...burritos and pizza because they can use pretty much anything!

Great minds think alike even if we are having a hard time with creativity.
