  2. Pizza
  3. Baked potato bar 
  4. Tuna cassarole 
  5. Speghetti w red sauce , salad , bread 
  6. Chicken soup . Bread 
  7. Breakfast for dinner.    

I found a easy bread recipe.    Really, it can't  get much easier or much cheaper.    .44 for TWO loaves .i did not price salt or water.    

In large bowl measure 

6 cups flour 
4 teaspoons salt 
1 teaspoon yeast
Stir with whisk.   
Add 3 cups lukewarm water ( 105 degrees) 

This will be shaggy and wet.    
Cover and sit on counter 8-24 hours.   Loose cover 

Preheat oven with Dutch oven and lid inside.   450 degrees for thirty minutes.   
Cut a piece of parchment ( DT) to fit bottom of the Dutch oven.  
CAREFULLY remove Dutch oven from the oven and drop the parchment and  1/2 of the dough into the Dutch oven,   
Return Dutch oven to  the oven and bake 30 minutes.   After 30 minutes, CAREFULLY remove lid and place where someone won't pick it up. HOT 
Bake another ten minutes or until top is browned to your liking,    

Cost .22 a loaf.   Actual working time . Maybe ten minutes.    

I would make the dough the night before kitchen prep day.   
The kitchen prep day, I would start the oven and continue to wash veggies, etc.
