  • Stir fry is easy. Just get some meat, doesn't matter if it's chicken, pork, or beef. Freeze it partially, to make it easier to slice, or ask the butcher to slice it thinly. Marinate with hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, and soy sauce, in equal measures. Stir fy just until cooked through, remove from pan, then add veggies to pan while still hot. You can use whatever your family likes. I use water chestnuts, broccoli, asparagus tips, carrots, snap peas and snow peas. Sometimes bok choy. Stiry fry the veggies, adding a little bit of soy sauce, until tender-crisp. Add the meat back in and it's done. Serve over rice. For an excellent sauce, mix 3 tbsp corn starch, 4 tbsp soy sauce, and 5 tbsp brown sugar with 2 cup of water and bring to a boil. Cook 1 min.

  • Beans and rice with chili tomatoes. (One can of beans and one can of tomatoes with chilis over rice); Tacoroni (one box of mac and cheese, prepared; add 1/2 lb. of browed, ground meat and about a cup of salsa); mommy cristos (one slice each of ham, turkey, cheese between two slices of french toast spread with currant or berry jelly); tomato soup with noodles; stuffed baked potatos (top with shredded cheese and broccoli); bean pie (layer tortillas, tomatoes with chilis, cheese and black beans).

  • I was thinking, lo mein and yakisoba are both easy (though yakisoba is japanese) and inexpensive. Stir fry whatever meat & veggies you have add noodles and stir fry with seasonings. Yakisoba comes with it's own seasonings. You can also use chinese 5 spice powder, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce or soy sauce. Sesame oil also adds a lot of flavor, and green onions as well.
