Frugal, Semi-Healthy, Toddlerific Lunch

Sometimes (ok, often) we have mac'n'cheese for lunch on the weekends.  Yes, we're all apparently under the age of 5 in our house!

In order to lessen the guilt, and stretch one box to feed 3 people, I've begun preparing it this way:

1 box mac'n'cheese (we get organic from WF or Trader Joe's)
2 cups frozen organic foursome veggies from Trader Joe's (beans, corn, carrots, peas)

When the water boils, dump in the frozen veg and let the water heat back up.  Add in the pasta and cook until it's done.  Drain and add butter, milk, and cheese powder.  Divvy up and devour!

It's pretty good.  T.J. said it's "not his preferred method", but Joseph eats it up like no one's business!  And there is plenty for the three of us at this point for a lunch.

Total cost: about $3 - and it's all organic!
