     Can you really make all those recipes for $5? Prices vary so much that I think you'd have to be careful. What meals do you make that are $5 and less?

    I'm with you Pat even though the recipes do look good I don't beleive you can make very many of the for $5.00 unless you have the ing. already on hand.  I don't get their idea of the price of cheese with it being almost $3.00 per 8 oz. here their prices look like they may be from the 80's or early 90's and milk at over $4.00 per gallon with tax.  Maybe they grow some of their own for the recipes.

    I don't think they're meant as an absolute guide to a $5 meal.  The challenge is for viewers to post recipes and the cost for their family and the cost isn't limited strictly to a $5 meal.  Here are the challenge guidelines:  http://www.5dollardinners.com/2007/01/5-dinner-challenge.html

    I use it for ideas. :)

    Some of the posters I've noticed got an ingredient free--either an item was given to them or they used a coupon which made it free.
