Re: The "~$5 Meal Ideas~" thread...
Easiest meal I make; Hubby's favorite for lunch since it reheats well.
1lb ground meat
1 Can tomato sauce
Tomato Bouillon (I use Knorr)
Brown meat while peeling and cutting up potatoes (less time? cut smaller!). You can add seasoning to meat, but I like to keep the sodium low. Add a couple cups of water, about 2-3 tbs of bouillon, can of tomato sauce, and potatoes. Simmer for as long as you have! I love it super duper simmered, about 40 mins (you'll need to add more water), but it is done whenever potatoes are soft. This probably serves 6; I usually do half of this for us two plus his lunch for the next day.
