    Sure!

    5 Bean Soup

    1 lb mixed beans, soaked overnight and cooked for 2 hours on the stove, then drained

    Saute together in 2 tbsp margarine or oil:
    1 chopped onion
    3 minced garlic cloves

    1 stalk of celery, chopped
    a 15 oz can of chopped tomatoes
    a ham hock or leftover ham
    4 cups of broth (I usually use either ham or chicken)
    salt and pepper to taste

    Add all to the crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours or on low all day. Diced potatoes, carrots, and corn all go nicely in this soup, too.

    Crockpot chicken and rice

    Place in crock pot:
    1 1/2 lb boneless chicken

    Combine, then pour over chicken:
    1 can cream of whatever soup (I make my own though)
    1/2 cup water

    Sprinkle over top:
    3/4 cup raw rice

    Pour over rice:
    1 1/2 cups chicken broth

    Cook on low for 6 hours or so.

    Let me know if you'd like any others.

    No problem...

    Overnight Breakfast Casserole...

    6 slices of day-old bread (a little bit dry)
    1/2 a stick of margarine, melted
    2 cups of milk (use reconstituted powdered milk, it's cheaper!)
    shredded cheese (about a cup)
    pinch of dry mustard or a squirt of the wet stuff lol
    3 beaten eggs

    Tear up the bread and layer bread -- cheese -- bread -- cheese -- bread -- cheese in an 8x8 pan (greased). Pour margaine on top. Combine eggs and mustard. Pour over bread. Refrigerate overnight. Bake in a 250* oven for an hour or so.

    SOS = ____ on a shingle. ___ = bad word for poop. lol

    It's hamburger gravy on toast. We simply call it SOS, as we don't use bad words in our home but SOS is also HELP! And the meal is certainly a help on the budget. lol
