he he i fixed my original post it didn't lay out the way i typed it out.
but here it is again, you can use sourmilk in place of butter milk in recipes.
1Tbsp lemon juice or key lime (we have a key lime tree so we replace all lemon juice for this)
enough milk to make that 1 C
let sit 15 min

Does the OP mean $2 for the whole meal, or $2 per person? That makes a difference
I would just interpret it however you want. I took $2 to fit my own family - feeding me, DH (big eater), and DS (9 months old). Feeding a family of 6 or more, however, and you'll probably have to double up many of the recipes in this thread.
Here's one I made tonight:
Vermont Curry Mix - $1.80 (this is the kind that comes in a "brick" like S&B)
Chicken breast - I use about $1 worth in this dish.
2 Potatoes - 50 cents?
2 Carrots - 10 cents?
Onion - 10 cents?
Brown rice - 25 cents (I pay $1 for a 1 lb bag)
However, this easily makes enough for 2 dinners for my family so divide by 2 and you get less than $2 per meal.
Here I was coming in to post my lentil recipe, okay so you have that one already.
Another favorite of mine is not the healthiest but the reason why I make it is because it reminds me of my grandma who use to make it all time during lent. Oh we only eat it during lent.
tuna patties. Canned tuna (4 for $1.00 during lent. Its always a loss leader item), bread crumbs, one egg, and seasoning, shape into 4 patties and fry.
Mac and cheese boxes (4 for $1.00 durning lent)
Canned Peas, 33 cents
stewed tomatoes in crackers which consist of stewed tomatoes, crushed up soda crackers and seasoning. I can get the tomatoes for 40 cents without a coupon and crackers 1/2 of a sleeve which cost 12 /12 cents.
So this meal is under a $1.00 during lent.

This reminds me of my DH's all-time favorite meal (for breakfast, lunch, or dinner)--black beans and rice in any form with an over-easy egg or two over top. The egg yolk breaks down into the beans and rice, which at first, I thought was soooo gross. Boy, was I wrong
I posted a similar version of this on another thread, but sometimes I combine one can of corn (drained, or an equal amount frozen or fresh, cooked), one can of black beans (drained), and half a jar or a whole jar of salsa, heat it all up in a pot, and combine it with rice. Then dish it out and put the eggs over top. We also add a liberal dose of Tabasco on top !
