No money - 2 weeks til payday. What to make? - Page 2

post #21 of 31
I like to make a soup with white beans, black beans, 3 potatoes, chicken broth (I usually add garlic and onion too), spinach or kale, and leftover chicken/turkey. Sometimes I add in orzo to stretch the meal even further. sounds like you would have most of the ingredients needed to make this soup. It's yummy too!

I don't have a recipe but this is the basic idea:

I soaked some dried black beans overnight and then rinsed and cooked them the next morning on my stovetop. After they were soft I pulled out 8 cups to freeze for later. To the remainder I added salt, pepper, onion, bell pepper, garlic, cumin, chili powder and Tabasco sauce and cooked them for another hour or so on low. Right before I served them over rice I added a little dried cilantro.

I just added the spices until it tasted yummy to me.

They were DELICIOUS! My 4 year old couldn't get enough of them!

They would also be great pureed into a black bean soup.

If you have eggs, you can make spinach quiche. I have a recipe I'll post if you want it.

Your beans sounds great!!

Heres to a better financial future. Good luck momma!

Make some homemade bread. It's really hardy and you can almost eat it out of the oven for a meal!

Fine. Thanks for asking. My mom bought us a few staples (like milk) and we actually got by for almost a week longer than initially thought. And we really didn't eat too poorly.

I'm using a lot of the suggestions for everyday meals so I really appreciate all of the ideas!
