Dinner Update

Tuna Noodle Casserole

GF macaroni (free sample from conference - the kids ate this better than any other GF pasta so far, plus it's paritally made out of bean flour, yay protein!)
Cream of whatever soup (.50)
One can of tuna in water, drained into bowl for spoiled and fat kitties (.50)
I just skipped the crackers (and the baking, actually), and it was fine

I served this with cooked green beans (.46), which no one ate because they were "rubbery and waxy." I wouldn't know because I can't eat green beans anymore after gorging myself on them the last time I was on a diet. Ditto Jell-O.

Total: $1.46

Verdict: The kids loved this. Loved. Three plates full of love. Maybe because I encouraged them to compete over who could take the biggest bite.

The simple meals are always the best, aren't they? Thanks for the info on the pasta, I'll have to try that one.

Where were you able to get GF cream soup of any kind for .50? I must be missing something at the stores because the cheapest I can seem to find them are over $1.00 a can. Some are over $2.00 a can. I love Tuna Casserole and it is one of my favorites from my childhood. Unfortunately my husband does not share this memory. So I tend to throw in canned chicken instead of tuna and he is much happier. Allthough that would bring the price up some. Amazing that an entire meal can be made for under $2.oo for a family of 5.

Howdy! I make my own cream soups. Just google "cream of anything soup" and you'll find a million recipes. That's the only way I found to do it.

That makes more sense as to how you were able to make it for such a small cost. That will have to be one of my weekend projects. Do you ever freeze the soups? I tend to do a lot of batch cooking and I thought that would make it easy to whip up a casserole in no time flat.

The kind I make is a powdered mix that I keep in my fridge. That way I can whip up as much or as little as I want at a time. It works great!
