I’m a single mother and I receive no child support. I “help people” for a living which means I don’t make a lot of money. I am now an expert grocery shopper. I’m not crazy and obsessed like those people on the extreme couponing shows, but I know my way around a bargain. Inexpensive recipes can keep meal time interesting for picky eaters, which is important. From time to time, I’ll share a few cheap-to-make recipes that I’ve had and some that I’ve come up with myself. Here’s the first one (thought up by me, when I had to rely on what was in the pantry and freezer). It doesn’t have a title; I’ll have to think of what to call it. Anyhoo, here it is:
1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
Some egg noodles—I’m not good at measurements so just decide how much you need. I used one half of a bag
1 can of tomatoes, okra, and corn (like this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Margaret-Holmes-Tomatoes-Okra-and-Corn-14.5-oz/10451145)
Season and brown the meat and drain the fat. While you are doing this, cook the egg noodles and strain them when they are done. After you drain the fat from the meat, add the tomatoes, corn, and okra (with the liquid). Then, add the cook egg noodles to the pan and mix it all together! Add the seasonings of your choice. (I hate unseasoned, bland food). Stir in some shredded cheese and heat it on low for a minute to melt the cheese. Yum!
