OK everyone, with the economy the way it is and with everyone trying to cut back, here's were we can share a little. Post one of your recipes that does not have expensive ingredients, or that doesn't require a large amount of ingredients. I will start with mine. Weiner Soup 2 small cans of tomato soup & 2 cans of water 2 cans of mixed vegatables (drained) 1 pack of hotdogs cut into small pieces red pepper flakes to taste (optional) salt & pepper to taste (optional) cook all these together in a large pot long enough so that the hotdogs are cooked completely. You can serve this alone or with crackers or grilled cheese sandwiches. This is really great on a cold or lazy day.

I like dried fruit, as a comfort food in the summer. I also make my own teas; using wild "weed" herbs and wildflowers. My headache tea is basically dried ground ivy (creeping charlie) leaves and clover flowers. The mixture's a quarter clover, and the rest if ground ivy. The flowers are to combat the HIGHLY aromatic (and not entirely pleasing to others of my household) smell of the leaves, and to make it sweeter. I get these things from my back yard, heh ^_^ for free.

LOL - actually the dish itself sounds pretty good, I'm just not sure that would want to cook "Weiner Soup" for my family.

Well that would be some ground beef, a jar of Ragu and some noodles. I don't really do much of the cooking any more. That or a can of chili, 3 hot dogs, 3 buns, and some cheese on top. Either that or I drive to Taco Bell.
