Everyone's gone through a period of being super low on cash and as a result had to make due with whatever random ingredients are hanging out in the kitchen. I know my boyfriend and I have thrown together our share of weird nasties.
The one that sticks out the most to me is Spaghetti Sauce Soup. Buy some cheap store brand sauce, water it down and toss in whatever spices you have on hand. The sad thing is that after a little while it starts to taste really good It's dinner for two for $1!
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to see what other poor people meals people have come up with.
