Re: Craziest "thrifty" meal you've ever made?

Our frugal dinner yesterday was a $2 frozen pizza dough , defrosted, topped with .75 worth of sauce, about .33 cents worth of frozen chopped spinach, and $1.50 worth of cheese.
Baked and served the 2kids and dh and myself.

Today we had .88 box of ziti, mixed with $1.50 ground beef, $1 sauce, $2 cheese, ..55 frozen chopped spinach, and .70 ricotta. Mixed together in baking dish, and baked. "sloppy lasagna" it lasted tonight Nd tomorrow for dinner.

Real frugality comes through in a cup of red lentils, half onion, few garlic cloves and a bit of ginger if on hand, one tomatoe, lots of dif spices. Pressure cooked, ladled atop the rice.

Super frugal/poor
Or Mac n noodles for the kids, and ramen for us.

Ps....what's with the soup that's made entirely of butter? I guess butter was much cheaper than it is now. Lol
