Wok's For Dinner: $5 Dinner Challenge

I've been trying to do a better job of actually calculating how much our meals are costing, keeping them within the $5 limit for our family of four. This meal was a definite budget-worthy meal.

Ham steaks -- $1.50 (I bought a picnic ham on sale and cut it into slices, enough for 3 meals)
Mixed Vegetables--$0.50 (used half a bag that was bought on sale for $1)
Cantaloupe--$0.25 (bought a super large cantaloupe on sale for $.99; we ate most of it Sunday night and used the rest up tonight)
5 eggs--$0.50
4 frozen biscuits--These 4 biscuits have been in the freezer so long, I couldn't tell you how much they originally cost me. That's free in my book.
Total cost -- $2.75
