We throw it into our checking account, which doubles as a savings account for us (great interest rate, yay!). Usually stays there until our insane property taxes come due, and gets used for that. Or for car repairs.
I can generally make spaghetti for under $2/person (much less actually, since there are usually leftovers), and that includes a bag of green beans for our side dish.
Soups and stews are usually great too, especially if you're careful with the meat. You don't need a whole lot of meat to make a good, filling, tasty soup, so you can get 2-3 of them out of one whole chicken, plus the carcass makes a great broth. And the nice thing about them is that you can mess...

For us it's just a non issue. We sit at the table for (almost) every meal. If there's a baby, and he's awake, he's at the table with us. Toddlers sit on my lap. By the time they're 4 and 5 years old, it's a comfortable normal for them, so rarely a problem.
