What do I make for dinner if I have no money and no meat or chicken?

I have no idea, we had spagetti already, and I don't have money to go buy meat. Any ideas what I could make.

  • is the website I go to in these times! you list the ingredients you do have and they give you some recipe suggestions! all I had one time was the basics like flour, sugar, butter, baking soda, etc and they gave me all these muffins and casserole recipes! what do you have to work with? if you have veggies, flour, eggs and spices you could bake or fry them, you could make a casserole dish, you could have breakfast for dinner.....

  • When Im low I make potato taquitos all you do is boil potatoes, warm corn tortillas and put the potatoes on tortilla and fold in three to make like little tunnles then fry in oil. They are soo good. and doesnt cost alot at all.

  • Eggs and toast, hard boiled, scrambled, omlete with cheese of veggies or nothing.
    Tomato and macaroni soup.
    Can soups, beans or make a pot of beans it takes awhile, but rather inexpensive. Follow the directions on the bag. Good lucky Sweety. Keep smiling.
