Subbing for ideas because I'm tired of the same things over and over!

We had this one for dinner tonight, it was really good. It is probably a little over $2, but would be close if you made your own biscuit dough instead of canned, and tastes better that way, too! I didn't use quite that much relish and I used more mayo.
Tuna in Biscuits
1 can (6 oz.) tuna
2 Tbs. mayonnaise
2 Tbs. sweet pickle relish
2 green onions, minced
3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
1 can refrigerated biscuits
Combine tuna, mayonnaise, pickle relish, onion cheese, salt and pepper.
Press each biscuit in greased muffin pan to form a cup. Spoon tuna mixture
into each biscuit. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
ETA: There is a picture of these on my blog if anyone wants to see (in siggy)
Around here, it's 1 cup water, 2 tsp yeast, 2 T olive oil, dash of salt, 4 cups flour (let rise an hour), then top with leftover spaghetti sauce, and whatever vegetables are hanging around. Sometimes I get fancy and cut up sandwich ham and toss on some asparagus.
Our usual pizza is pepperoni, bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms. And the obligatory mozzarella cheese, which is the most expensive part ($3.69 for 24 oz.) We shop at Aldi's and the $2 package of pepperoni lasts us about 10 pizzas, because I pile on the veggies.
I once calculated it at about $3.50 for a pizza, and we each eat half, making it $1.75/meal. Add in my $0.99 bottle of red pepper flakes (which lasts about a year) and the Parmesean sprinkles (which last 2 months) and it comes to about $2.
These look really good! I may try them one night when dh is working late... he hates tuna, but the rest of us love it!
I really like your blog too, I find it inspiring!:
How do you do lasagna for $2?? A thing of noodles is over $1, a jar of cheap sauce is $1, then there is either ricotta or tofu and meat or veggies. I always seem to spend a lot to make it. Sometimes I got dh a frozen one on sale for a couple dollars, but they always taste so fake and overly processed to me. (although he gladly eats them)
