  • Spaghetti.

    One of my family's favorite meals is

    The Dip
    2 cans refried beans
    1 pound ground beef or turkey
    1 bag mozz cheese

    Layer beans meat then cheese put in over till cheese is melted. Serve with salsa' sour cream and tortilla chips.

    This is so yummy and even though its called The Dip its a full meal it makes a lot and is very filling (and Soooooo good :)

  • French fry casserole

    1pound plain frozen french fries
    1 pound hamburger meat
    1 can corn
    1 big can cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken)
    1 onion

    Put french fries into bottom of glass dish and put in oven on 350. Cook meat with chopped onion. mix with corn and mushroom soup. Put on top of french fries and bake until hot and bubbly.

    This is another favorite. The french fries are a big turn off to people when they hear the name just because eating french fries in a casserole sounds weird but its just like eating potatoes and is really good :)

  • Chicken pot pie: 2 premaid pie crusts, 1 can chicken breasts, 1 can mixed veggie, 1 can cream of chicken soup....put all ingredients into one pie crust, pop the other pie crust out of the shell and turn over on top (upside down) to make the top crust, then bake until the crust is done.
    Taco pie.....same idea as above but use hamburger/ground turkey, taco seasoning, 1 can black bean, 1 can corn, shredded cheese......salsa and sour cream to top it when you serve it.
    Pasta salad: Spiral pasta, can corn, peas, beans, (cut up boiled eggs or chicken optional) cook the pasta, drain and add veggies, then use your favorite salad dressing. I prefer Italian or Red Wine Vinegrette.

  • Well first check your fridge and cabinet so you don't buy something that you have check to see if something is old.Also i would try to meat that can flow into meals like beef hamburgers on night and spaghetti another.A must is fruit and vegetables.Snacks and also a couple frozen or ready meals when tired.

  • meatloaf with baked pts, with baked beans is a favorite here. fish with coleslaw and hushpuppies and corn on the cob is another favorite, homemade pizza, chicken or porkchops with mac and cheese,rolls, ham with pts and then some sides, another meal is sausage and fried pts and corn and then add rolls, another meal is mashed pts and creamed corn and then add hamburger. Then most of the meals we add rolls, or cornbread or muffins. Then we add fruit for a side dish. we even have breakfast night like pancakes or french toast with bacon or sausage. English muffins and then add cooked bacon and add sliced cheese and then put in oven to melt, turkey hash with mashed pts. Hope that helps some.
