Need Few Ingredient Meal Ideas

Hi, ladies. I briefly mentioned this in another post, but am officially soliciting ideas. For 1 weekend a month, DH has to go to Drill for Army Reserves, and our 6 month old DD and I go with him. We're almost 4 hours from home, but it's the town we used to live in and a lot of our family is still there. We stay at his grandma's house and find ourselves eating out far too frequently (it used to be every meal from Friday dinner to Sunday dinner!). The last few times we've gone to the grocery store and picked up a few items to make meals at the house. They offer for us to eat their food, but we already feel like we impose (is that the word I'm looking for?) on them being that we're there every month and all. So I'm trying to figure out some cheap meals we can have while there but we will be buying all the ingredients (except like spices and butter and such, we don't have a problem using those!) so they need to be meals that don't require much to make. We have full use to the kitchen so that's not an issue. We just prefer it to be quick and easy and inexpenive. Here's what we've been eating:
Hamburgers and Potato Chips
Hot Dogs and Macaroni and Cheese
Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have!
