Buddy Friday - Cheap and Cheerful Meals.........

I put "Cheap and Cheerful Meals," into google and came up with some really interesting sites.

This is a Vegetarian site with a lot of yummy looking meals. I am not big on eating a lot of meat, so we try and have a vegetarian meal at least once a week.

Here is a yummy recipe for Cheap and Cheerful Chicken Pot Pie - uses chicken thighs which are a lot cheaper than chicken breast.

Students know how to stretch their money for meals and here is a neat site called Student Recipes I am sure there are ideas on there that we can all use.

Cheap and Cheerful Easy Dishes is a variety of dishes, the soup sounds good.

One thing that is super cheap is Ramen Noodles, here are some great sites/recipes.

I hope there may be a recipe or two you would like to make.

Ones we can afford LOL

Tried the Chicken Pie tonight. It was delicious. Instead of the pastry top I used mashed potatoes, really nice.
