      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
      pepper
      salt
      (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.

      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
      ideas…

      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.
