Your favorite frugal foods and dishes

Looking to pinch food pennies. I love my rice and black beans, baked beans, split pea soup, soups in general - but I need some new ideas and a pep talk. I know some of you spend practically nothing on food, and I want to know how you do it.

I'm looking to spend no more than $35 a week on food, which I'm thinking should be plenty, but it never seems to be.

I'd like recipes and tips, especially for stretching fruits and veggies. Do you stick to in-season foods? Buy only frozen veggies? I've had a garden all summer and now I have to adjust.
