What is your cheapest and most delicious meal?

The other day i was reading about how to make $50 last a long time. One mom suggested cooking a chicken one night, then making soup with the bones the next night. What a good idea. Any of you have any other good ideas? If so i would love to hear from you.

  • You get the biggest, cheapest meat you can. (It's usually a whole chicken, or this time of year, a whole turkey). Cook at as a roast, day 1. clean the bones and store... with a five or six pound bird you can get the same amount of meals. Make a large pot of broth with the bones, and don't use it all for soup.

    I made a turkey friday. We had turkey friday night, turkey taquitos for lunch today, turkey pot pie for dinner tonight, probably soup tomorrow night, or maybe I'll tuck some turkey into a hard roll dough with cheddar cheese and bake it, possibly adding some broccoli to that...

    and then, the next night, stir it into hot pasta, with cream, garlic, parmesan cheese, and peas, top it with bread crumbs and bake it. Yumm...

    the key is to use a bunch of different styles of recipes, so it doesn't feel like reheated leftovers.
