Quick and easy dinner

Thomas is in heaven tonight. I made a huge dish of mac and cheese for dinner, with plenty of leftovers. It's his very favourite meal and as far as he's concerned we just don't have it often enough.

It's such a frugal meal too. Today the total cost for 12 serves was a low, low $3.63 or just 30 cents per serve.

I try to have at least two really cheap (ingredients wise) meals a week. They really help to keep the grocery bill down and under budget. When I come in under budget, I add half the surplus to the slush fund and half to our savings so I have real motivation to keep the shopping bill low.
