that is a hard question. it is never cheap to eat outside here. veggie dinners are usually cheap and healthy. so i like them mostly. pumpkinpuree soup is my latest find.

My favorite cheap meal would be black bean soup:

In a crock pot, add 2 cups dried black beans, 1/8 cup brown rice, 1 small jar of salsa, 1/4 cup frozen corn, and 4-6 cups of water. Cook all day on low. Can add cubed chicken if desired. Enjoy!

Could you post exact recipe. I just made my mom's recipe using stock, onions, broccoli and evaporated milk, but I think it would taste better with cheese!

Thumbs up Broccoli and cheese soup

I'd be happy to!

1 (10-oz) package frozen chopped broccoli or equivalent from your garden
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup flour
1-1/2 cups milk
14-oz. can chicken stock or equivalent that is homemade
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (you can always add more)

Cook broccoli until thawed; drain well. Meanwhile, saute celery and onion in butter until tender; add broccoli. Stir in flour; add milk and broth in small amounts, stirring after each addition. Add seasonings and heat, stirring occasionally until thickened. Add the cheese and stir until cheese has melted. Makes 5 to 6 cups soup. Enjoy!

I recently tried the cottage cheese over egg noodles that Stellajean mentioned. I have had cottage cheese over a baked potato before but never noodles.
THAT was really good!

Seems someone else mentioned something about cabbage and noodles together?

hugs, train

I bet that was good, Donna. I will have to try it!
Today for breakfast, I had sliced apples with peanut butter and honey dip...A few Tblsp. of peanut butter with honey mixed in.
Take care and God bless!

train, do you need a recipe for the cabbage and noodles? It is always a big hit here. They sell it at fairs, festivals, serve it at church gatherings.
I make it every couple of months. My family eats it up.
