My Meal Master List

By request, this week's Meatless Monday post has been postponed, probably until next week, since Meatless Tuesday just sounds weird.  Instead, I have been asked to share my Meal Master List, since that is the basis from which I make my meal plans and ultimately one half of the secret to super cheap eating (the other half of the secret is growing it or making it yourself).  Don't fret though:  if you are depending on my Meatless Monday posts for meatless ideas, there are still meatless meal ideas here!

The Meal Master List is an ever evolving document, as I decide I don't like certain things anymore, or I introduce new recipes to my repertoire.  Right now, I'm actually undergoing a sort of shift of what I'm including in my Master List, so this may be a shorter list than usual, but I'm adding new recipes all the time and plan on posting them here as I discover new treasures.  Recipes that I've already posted include links to that recipe and I'll try to keep that updated in the future, so you may want to bookmark this post!

As of today, April 18, 2011, this is my Master List (note: if vegetables aren't part of the entree listed, I serve them with whatever veggies I have on hand that sound good.  ALL meals include at least one vegetable in my house!):
