Cheap meal recipes

As we are a one income family, it tends to be feast (the immediate week after pay) and then famine (the week prior to pay).  There are only so many exciting ways to cook mince (beef mince usually, about $12 a kilo - approx $US9 or 5 British pounds, 1 kilo = approx. 2.2 pounds), and it's becoming harder and harder to find new recipes.  Lamb is incredibly expensive at the moment (because of the drought), it costs about the same as some types of steak.  Vegetarian meals are a no-go because TTO has a pathological fear of vegetables.  Does anyone have any recipes for good cheap meals that their families enjoy, and are willing to pass on?

Feeling much better today, although still tired.

I'm glad my wasted morning's efforts could be put to the important purpose of cheering you up. Of course you do realise that you will be inundated with my gyrating icons from now on, well at least until I get bored of making them,
