Response to Thanks, I am loving these suggestions and...

I forget how many you are feeding, but here goes:
-tacos made 50-50 with meat and beans to stretch the meat, serve on ww tortillas with lettuce, green taco sauce, side of corn.
-marinate some of the cooked split ck breast in some Asian dressing, top a salad of 2 lettuces, shredded carrot, sliced scallion, Add beans to stretch
-apple sauce muffins/bread/cake
-use the split chicken breast as "pulled chicken" in BBQ sauce, over the ww buns. Serve baked beans on the side
-eggs+bacon+cheese+onions/scallions=Impossible pie/quiche, add side veggie
-tip: put limp celery in iced water to revive it
-drain fruit (save juice to serve as is, mixed with tea, or in Jello) and make a crisp (use oat convenience mix)
-jam+ oat convenience mix=cookie bars
-what kind of lunch meat is that? salami?ham? need more info
-pasta sauce+1/2 lb beef+stewed tomatoes=pasta sauce over noodles of choice, top with Parmesan, serve a side veg
-corn+ milk=chowder
-make meatballs in pasta sauce, serve over noodles for meal # 1, take more meatballs (store as frozen) and make a white sauce, to which you add some grated cheese. Will be a different meal from meal # 1-serve over rice/noodles
-homemade beef chilli with beans, make cornbread
-meatloaf (lefotvers become meatloaf sandwiches on WW bread)
-Sheppards pie
-hotdogs+ beans for beanies and weanies to stretch it further.
-pintos+rice+ a bit of cheese for a complete protein meal
-pancakes for supper
-homemade mac n cheese, serve a side veggie
-tuna casserole
-tuna cakes (make tartar sauce out of mayo and relish), veggies, rice/noodles
-creamed tuna over rice, veggie
-bean burgers, side veggie
