Since most of us have had to tighten our budgets with the rising cost of "stuff"... Are you eating more spaghetti? Beans and rice? Five dollar pizza's?

Can you share a really good, budget friendly dish? TIA...

I wish we had an Albertson's here in Michigan; but I will share this w/ my brother who is Fla... LOL That's a great price.... TFS
Here's another recipe, Easy Enchilada Pie Recipe
I listed a menu of most of what we eat. It is all vegetarian and most of the meals are very cheap and easy! I will be adding more to this list in the future! I have found allot more, just have not had the time to add them :)
We have to live on a very small budget right now. I can take 3 chicken breasts and make three meals out of it for my family of three..

Breast 1.

Cheep Chicken and Dumplings
(My family loves it despite the cheating)

I use this as the first meal so I can use the stock from boiling the chicken. My family only eats white meat.

Boil all three pieces of chicken. I add a can of chicken broth to the water after I'm done boiling and break up one breast by hand into the pot. I put the other two away for the next two days.

Then I use Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits (in the 4 pack rolls) and pinch off little balls and drop them into the pot (while still boiling, but turn to medium heat). I use all four rolls because my family eats a ton of it. I add a bit of salt and pepper and let it cook until the dumplings are done and the broth thickens a little.

Open a can of green beans, makes some stove top, and voila. Dinner is served.

Breast 2.

Chicken Tator Tot Casserole
Preheat Oven to 350

-2lbs Tator Tots
-1 can peas
-Leftover Chicken (even layer)
-1 can cream of mushroom soup
-1 can cream of chicken soup
- grated cheddar cheese (enough to cover pan)

Cover bottom of cake pan with tator tots. Drain the peas and spread them evenly over tots. Add a layer of chicken on top. Mix together your cream of mushroom soup & cream of chicken soup with 1 can of water. Spread evenly over the top of chicken. Top with cheese to taste. Bake until cheese is starting to brown. (approx 30 min)

Breast 3

Chicken Stir Fry

Break the last breast up and make a big stir fry. I usually use broccoli, peppers, and onions. You could buy bagged veggies already mixed for this sort of fry or cut up your own. It's amazing how far that breast will go, but be sure and save a good sized one for this meal.

Steam or boil some rice and you're good to go.

Well compromising with diet, is not at all healthy idea. Though rising price of every commodity have somewhat put pressure on our budget. But all efforts needs to be made to maintain healthy diet, at the same time taking out irrelevant things from budgeting.
