One meal that I make and is enjoyed by hubby and son is Tuna Noodle Casserole.It is cheap to make and very quick and easy.
2 cans tuna
1 can cream of mushroom soup
16 oz. bag of noodles
(I sometimes use a can of mushrooms,drained-sometimes chop a half an onion into it)
onion powder,according to taste
garlic powder,according to taste.
mushroom can full of milk
I boil my noodles and while they are boiling I open cans,drain the tuna,cut the onion and so on.Once noodles are done I drain them very well and put back into the same pan I cooked them in and toss in all the other ingredients and stir till combined.
So one pan method and low cost ingredients.

birth of child. In a best case scenario we will be paying $6,000 out
of pocket. In a worst case, we will be paying $12,000 out of pocket.
It is extremely important that we stay under budget.
Our bills that are flexible are water and electric/gas. I am asking
my children to take shorter showers and may actually get a count down
timer. For electric I am goign to try to minimize what we use and
keep the heat low in the winter and high in the summer. For gas, I
have chosen to stick close to home for the kids activities (1
activity 20 minutes away, weekly, 1 15 minutes away twice a month).
For groceries we have really cut back but I need some more ideas to
really stretch the budget. I am trying Hillbilly housewife for all
meals/snacks except dinner (no one in my house would eat like that).
So for dinners I am just winging it. I was hopeful for some more meal
2 of my children are sensitive to sugar and gluten
my husband and 1 of my daughters cannot tolerate greasy, fatty foods
or high processed
My husband cannot tolerate very acidic foods
I used to be a vegan, so I am not into too much meat or heavy
meals..I tend to have an easily upset stomach
If you have any ideas or websites let me know.
