Southern Living on a budget

Even Southern Living magazine is getting in on the lowering your food budget craze. Here's their take, 5 meals that can be made for $1.25 per person:
Menu 1:
Meatloaf With Green Chile-Tomato Gravy
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Sautéed Squash and Carrots

Menu 2:
Cornmeal-Crusted Catfish Nuggets
Oven-Roasted Potatoes
Lemon-Apple Coleslaw

Menu 3:
Lemon-Garlic Roast Chicken With Sautéed Green Beans
Cornmeal Pudding

Menu 4:
Baked Chicken Breasts
Pasta Pancakes and Gravy
steamed fresh broccoli

Menu 5:
Pan-Fried Pork Chops With Onions
Fresh Spinach-and-Apple Salad With Cinnamon Vinaigrette
Not bad, but over the next few weeks, I'm going to try to do better, at least from a healthful-eating standpoint.
