Just had Ramen noodle and a PB sandwich for dinner. That's soup and sandwich for $0.45.
That's right, no girlfriend.
Anyhow, I'd love to hear how others economize dinner when necessary.

When buying Kool-aid always buy a dark color flavor, especially strawberry. The flavor will hold up longer and when the jar is half empty you can fill it up again and still have the taste.

Ground Turkey-can be found at 1$ a pound. Three burgers, and add muenster or brie cheese to really make it good.

Collared Greens, you get a bunch for as little as 50 cents--saute some chopped onion in butter or oil, season, add some spices-bay leaf, garlic, etc, and add some smoked pork neck bones that are very cheap . Add the prepared greens, add water and/or chicken broth, and bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer. simmer for at least four hours with lid on. Find some vinegar.

Pound of beans, dry--cheap--soak over night, saute onion, season, smoked pork neck bones, bring to boil, simmer for at least three hours.

Alfalfa sprout and cheese sandwich-- very good.

Rice is cheap, boil in chicken broth-- add scrambled egg and bean sprouts.season.

Pears, bake in water, brown sugar, and some wine until soft. easy cheap desert.

In my true hippie poor days, me and my roomies thought buying bulk taters was a great idea, like a burlap sack full of the things. Didn't factor in rottage.......

scrambled eggs / toast
Peanut Butter & jelly
Ground turkey burger, tater, & veg.

I could eat the above menu every day if I had to, and still not hate it.

BTW, breakfast dinners are great / quick / & cheap...... love em....

Go to almost any mexican restaurant(not Taco Bell!) and you will find that they give you complimentary chips and salsa just for sitting down. Just order a beverage and look at the menu for awhile...they will keep refilling your chips and salsa! If you are wise in your decision of beverage(i.e. iced tea or Pepsi), your dining experience should only cost you around 85 cents plus tax!

Old college favorites:
1. Fried potatoes and ketchup
2. Grilled cheese sandwiches ( stolen cheese from late night grocery run)
3. Bread and butter with sugar ( sugar borrowed from from the campus eatery)
4. Ramen Noodles mixed in tomato soap ( ketchup and warmwater will substitute misssing tomato soup)
Broke and stoned is an ugly combination indeed!

Ramen is the way to go. $.10 a pack. Mac and cheese (the store brand kind) is good too. Jello for desert, can't beat that. lol

You could always add an egg to your ramen noodles.
Or get a box of bisquik/the store brand equivalent and make pancakes/biscuits.
I usually eat lots of canned fruit or a tunafish sandwich.
Storebrand Cereal is good too.
Or some of that macaroni and cheese where you just pour boiling water on it.

You can do the same thing that unclejon suggested at restauraunts that give you free bread, just order water.

Scrambled eggs on fresh tortillas with a little cheese and some salsa (or hot sauce). Considering that a dozen eggs, one pack of tortillas, a 59 cent bottle of Louisiana hot sauce, and quarter pound of cheese can make about 4 small or 3 decent-sized meals . . . that would probably come to about a buck apiece.

Sometimes when I'm feeling the pinch, for lunch at work I'll go to a grocery store and get a pack of ramen noodles, a bagel or hard roll, and piece of fruit. That's not much over a buck, either.

"Toaster Leavings"

A Bundy family favorite.

And look under the couch cushions. What is the half-life of a Pop-Tart?

Aren't ramen noodles really bad for you because of the high content of the sodium?

Pasta, garlic, olive oil, oregano, black pepper and a chunked tomato.

Keep a victory garden for the oregano, garlic and tomato.

Dinner under a Buck.

And I'm thinking Derek from Cinci will have a recipe for Venison Rocky Mountain Oysters.

Breakfast for dinner rules!!!!


Agreed. I could eat breakfast at any time of the day. And whenever I go to a diner I always get breakfast food.

Scramby eggs are my specialty. The secret (thanks to Ralph Cifaretto) is to put a little sour cream in them. Then I like to cover them with Frank's Red Hot Sauce and have them with a little toast, english muffin, etc.

NO recipe on the oysters. A while back I had a bunch of breaded turkey fries, which are, indeed, cheap. But, I believe I have had my share of that.

When I'm on a Digorno shortage I have a tuna sandwich and water or orange or something.

There's always those nights when the house is deprived of yum yums, so I munch on a mayonnaise sandwich and tap water.
