Cooking for 2 on a budget?

I cook dinner for my boyfriend and myself every night. We’re on a tighter budget at the moment and I tend to work late most nights. I’m also trying to lose weight and keep him healthier. In terms of food, he’s more traditional (meat and potatoes) kind of guy whereas I’m pretty adventurous (and less thrilled with meat) so finding meals that work for both of us without breaking the bank.

Does anyone have any favorite recipes to offer? I often find myself cooking meals for 4 then eating the leftovers for lunch. I’m not opposed to doing this but I get bored eating the same thing for 4 meals in a row!

A few other notes: I have a smaller fridge so I can’t store a ton of food (i.e. it’s hard to pack up a big pot of soup) but I have all of the tools, pots/pans, herbs/spices, oils and vinegars, etc. that a well-stocked home would have.
