Budget Friendly Meals - Autumn Version

I thought I would start a list of budget friendly meals and dishes. Since the weather is starting to turn (at least in my neck of the woods) it is always great to be reminded of meals that can be frozen, large portions, and well just great home cooking... Plus it keeps us all on budget. Please feel free to list meals, recipes are also welcome!! Happy Cooking and more important, Happy Eating!!

Chili - my recipe makes 4 meals for 4 people (16 large servings) and costs approximately $8.00 or $.50 per serving...

1# ground beef
one green pepper chopped
one small onion chopped
48oz. tomato sauce
4 cans kidney beans
1 can chopped tomatoes
dash of worcheshire dash of hot sauce
chili seasoning

I take my onion, pepper, and beef and brown in the bottom of a large pot. When browned add all the other ingredients. Simmer for 2-3 hours.

Goulash - my recipe makes 2 meals for 4 people or 8 servings and costs approximately $4.00 or $.50 per serving....

1# ground beef
1 16oz box of elbow macaroni
one small green pepper chopped
one small onion chopped
3 small cans tomato sauce
dash of worcheshire, pinch or two of brown sugar, hot sauce

Bowl elbow macaroni to al dente, drain, set aside.

In a large pan brown beef with onion/pepper, worcheshire. Add tomato sauce, brown sugar, and hot sauce. Stir in elbow macaroni.

Please add more!! Diane

Would it pretty please be possible to leave budget related food/meal threads on the budget board? They seem to get a lot more replies over there. I love the recipes board, but budget related meals make more sense to me on the budget board.

I totally agree but for some reason all my posts are getting moved. I will just discontinue posting on the budget boards, so this should stop. Sorry for the inconvenience. Diane.

I much prefer having recipe threads on the budget board. The cooking forum is too difficult to find, at least for me.

I'm making beef stew tomorrow. The store had stew meet on sale in large packs; enough for two different meals. I'll just throw it in the crock pot with some onion, carrots and potatoes. Probably all together about $1 or less per serving. Most of the time I'll just do meat and carrots and have mashed potatoes. hmmmmm....maybe some apple crisp too.

I may try that goulash recipe. DH would love that!
