Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~

Tuna noodle cass.

can of tuna
2cans of cream of mush soup (or use big can which is what we do)
pasta of your choice
salt+pepper to taste

cook pasta. Mix in soup and tuna and simmer for a while. Put in baking dish add shredded cheese to top and put in oven until cheese is melted. Can also be eaten without the cheese if you prefer I didnt put measurements in because you can make this recipe as small or large as you want.

Pork chops

pork chops
2cans of cream of mush soup(or 1 lg can)
WHITE onion
salt+pepper to taste

Brown pork chops WITH the chopped up white onion. I cover it for 1/2 the time (to help cook the onions, if the onions brown a little its SUPER yummy!) and 1/2 the time without the lid. Add soup and simmer for a while. Serve over rice. (you can use above recipe for chicken that is really good too, but I dont add the onions)

Those are 2 cheap ones I can think of off the top of my head. I have a BIG OL' list of cheap recipies (I took a SUPER frugal cooking class a couple years ago) but, I cant find them..I lost them in the move

Something else that is cheap and good is the chicken pot pie recipe on the side of a bisquick box. I use a bag of california veggies and bake a potato or two and chop them up.
