Re: ~$5 Meal Ideas~
I'm still reading through this thread, but LOVE all the great meal ideas.
One of my fave cheap meals is chop meat & water gravy (my dad calls it boot soup)
*Saute 1 green pepper, 1 onion, some minced garlic (to taste), and a can of mushrooms (optional) in EVO until soft.
*In another pan cook 1 lb ground beef. with some spices. I use some parsley, oregano, garlic powder. Drain off fat. Then mix in with the green pepper/onion mixture.
*Add 2 cans of beef broth and allow to cook on med heat for like an hour.
*Serve over elbow noodles
An easy, quick, and cheap lunch are deli wheels.
*Mix together some cream cheese w/ chopped up green olives.
*Spread mixture over flour tortillas
*Place deli meat (ham/turkey) over mixture
*Roll tortilla over like a burrito and place in fridge to chill for 5 mins
*Take it out and cut into spiral slices
