Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...
Sorry if this is a repost, I didn't see it anywhere though.
1 can tuna
1 box mac & cheese
1 small can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of vegetable (I used corn)
*I used all off brand items in this to save $$, but if I was to do it over I think brand name mac & cheese would have made it better, or maybe adding just some shredded*
Make mac according to box instructions, add other ingredients and heat through.
*To make this dish more filling I can see putting some bread crumbs or crackers on top and maybe baking it*
That's the dish, my 3 year old loved it! I was actually shocked she ate it all because she usually doesn't do very well with any fish including tuna. I guess she loved it for the cheese.
Also, this recipe made enough to feed my preggo self, my DD, and my hubby with a bit leftover.
