  • Some chicken, some rice and cream of mushroom or scream of celery soup... makes a great baked cassarole that is inexpensive. You can make it for 2 or for 20. Add a salad or broccoli..something green on the side.

  • Casseroles. Mac and cheese, tuna, etc. Also, meatballs with gravy or buttered noodles, rice or potatoes. Spaghetti, tacos, chili, soups and sandwiches, breakfast for dinner, meatloaf. Check out or ($10 Meals or Rachael Ray). Kraft Foods website is good too.

  • The easiest thing I ever found, that everyone would eat, of course, is Hamburger Noodle Casserole.  So easy, but yet yummy.  You can read how to make it here:  How to Make Hamburger Noodle Casserole.   Yes, that's my article that I wrote, I just can't paste the whole recipe in here.   LOL!!
