No Spend August meals

In order to be as extreme as I can this month I’m preparing meals based on what we have in the house as best as I can.  Obviously the beginning of the month will be easier than the end, but groceries are an exception of No Spend August anyway, I’m just challenging myself as much as I can to not spend even with the allowed stuff. 😉  Here is what I’ve been eating so far this August.  Also keep in mind that I could survive off of the same food daily and never be bothered by it.


B: Cereal (frosted mini wheats), banana; L: Chicken thigh, rice, broccoli; D: Macaroni and cheese with ham


B: Cereal (honey nut cheerios), banana; L: Precooked frozen Tyson Chicken, left over rice, mixed veggies; D: Leftover macaroni and cheese with ham


B: Yogurt, banana;  L1: PB&J; L2: Leftover macaroni and cheese with ham, salad; D: Sloppy Joe and mixed veggies


B: Peanut butter toast, applesauce; L: Leftover rice, apple; D: Hot dogs with mixed veggies


B: Waffles, applesauce; L: Leftover macaroni and cheese with ham, mandarin oranges; D: Baked chicken thigh with mixed veggies


B:  Blueberry muffins, applesauce; L: PB&J; D: (at a friend’s birthday party)


B:  Pear and banana; L: Cereal and bacon; D: Grilled cheese and tomato rice soup

I have plenty of food to keep going at this rate.  Are there any “in the pantry” meals that you recommend?  What is your favorite cheap meal?
