how many people have been so low on their budget that the only thing you possibly would be good for you was to make a dinner basically made of beans, like a 4 bean casserole like i did tonight.

 When we are low on budget, our go to meal is eggs and bacon. Either on bread or toast. My DH would not eat a 4 bean casserole, so that is out of the question. A 4 bean casserole is good for you, all that fiber.

Not budget related but one of my fav meatless meals is black beans and brown rice. When I don't feel like cooking its my default

Yes, when my youngest two kids were little I lived that way for three years. Hard. Keep at it mama. You can do it!

Ww pancakes
Eggs and toast
Beans and rice
Baked potato bar (my kids still love this!)

Check your library for "Not Just Beans" cookbook and also the "More with Less". Both are great.

Been there, mama.  It sucks.  Are you able to grow a garden?  That can really save you!!  =)

We've been there and most of the house went to bed hungry because they don't like beans
