beans and budget
May 17, 2013 at 8:07 PM

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

    Good cheap and healthy stuff:
    Tuna
    Pb and j on wheat
    Ww pancakes
    Eggs and toast
    Beans and rice
    Baked potato bar (my kids still love this!)
    Homemade pizza

    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
