    Default my budgeting is back to where i started

    How about some one pan meals. Here is a recipe I can make in one pan that can be served with a salad and/or tortilla's I call it poor man's supper and it can be filling One pound of ground beef, chicken or turkey 1 1/2 cups rice
    one 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. salt/pepper to taste 1 teaspoon crushed or freshgarlic 1/4 teaspoon cummino 3 cups water Fry meat in a coated frying pan orwokuntil well browned add rice andfry untilrice turns white add tomato sauce andwater then the spices. Cover and let simmer until rice is done this can serve up to 6 people and can be doubled easily. I tried to make simple meals like wimpies/sloppy joes that can be done in a crock pot and can feed a lot of
    people even chili can go a long way. Gail in NE PA

    I have a fairly easy meal that isn't very expensive and you can easily

    make a large amount.

    Over medium heat, saute onions and green peppers in butter (or cooking

    oil) until onions are transparent. The amount you use of onions and

    green peppers is your choice.

    Cube potatoes (again the amount is your choice. I usually make two

    skillets full). Place the potatoes in the pan with the onions and green

    peppers.

    Dice up a one pound package of polska kielbasa, polish sausage, smoked

    sausage or whatever meat you want to use and place it in pan.

    Cover, stirring occassionally until potatoes are tender.



    Takes about 30 mins. from start to finish and fills you up!

    This is a very inexpensive meal especially when you get the kielbasa on

    sale buy one, get one free!

    Also I have a chicken and noodle skillet and a chicken and rice recipe

    if you're interested. Just let me know.

    Add in side dishes- veggies, salads, fruit, cottage cheese, etc, along

    with a light dessert. Don't buy the dessert ready made, but get like a

    package of jello or pudding, and pre-make several "cups" to use as a

    snack and as dessert.



    Meat doesn't have to be served at every meal. Add oatmeal to any

    hamburger you use for a meal- burgers, hamburger helper, spaghetti,

    meatloaf, etc. It takes the flavor of the meat, and you can't taste it

    or even tell it's there when you are eating the meat.



    Plan several "cheap" meals, and buy enough to have 3 or 4 extra "meals"

    on hand each month, just in case. Spaghetti is our family's cheap meal.

    We buy a big box of rotini noodles (less messy than spaghetti noodles

    with little kids) which makes 2 meals of spaghetti, then 2 jars of

    sauce, 2 cans of tomato sauce (small ones), and we have 2 meals for

    under $5 total. It goes along ways, and it's filling.



    Add in a can of peas or beans, and a light salad, and it goes a long

    ways towards filling a person up.



    Shop farmer's markets, especially this time of year, and stock up on

    fresh fruits & veggies that are in season, and thus- cheaper. Right

    now, Strawberries are in season (at least here in MI). I pick up a few

    packs each week, slice em and mash em, and serve that as dessert.

    Grapes are dirt cheap right now for us, too, so again, I grab grapes

    and serve those as a light dessert or mid-day snack.



    Basically, don't concentrate so heavily on a main meal that will fill

    everyone up or have left overs. Focus more on having side's that will

    fill everyone and compliment the main meal. Left overs are nice, but

    can sometimes go to waste, and the main meal often costs much more than

    the little sides.

    I would like as many recipies i could get. I am half

    Thai and I usually cook asian meals. But I need to

    learn more american meals. Even though I cook american

    meals to I still end up using soy sauce in every meal.

    My family thanks for all the help. Thanks so much.

    I do add side dishes. A meal i make either has rice,

    or potatoes. It always has a meat too. I am just

    trying make sure I can manage the amount of food on my

    income.

    Cheap quick meals my fav as mentioned is breakfast for dinner since

    we are rushed in the morning and never have times for eggs and

    bacon/etc



    Grillcheese and fries/salad

    Grilled cheese and ham

    tacos (you can make up taco meat ahead of time and freeze!

    soup and sand (grillcheese/tomatoe/eggsalad whatever)

    rice with chicken breast cut up and add some sauce in the pan add a

    salad -this is one of my fav's. You use less chicken then if you

    served a piece each!
