I'm not a huge fan of cooking. But a girl can only live off sandwiches for so long. And I can't afford to eat out.

Any suggestions.

Garbanzo Bean salad.

-Cucumbers
-Garbanzo Beans (chick peas)
-Red Onion
-Lemon Juice
-Olive Oil
-Garlic
-Black olives
-Garlic salt
-Salt
-Pepper

This is a very healthy salad that you can eat as a meal or snack. It's cheap too if you can get your produce for a good deal. You can get the beans canned. If they're canned, rinse them before hand. Bagged beans are cheaper, but you need to boil them for a couple of hours before hand.

For me this meal would cost about 4 dollars assuming you own seasonings, lemon juice, and olive oil. And you can eat it 2-3 times a can. So that's a bit over a buck a meal.

Basically, you throw everything in to a bowl. Mix it up and adjust the taste to your preferences. It stays cold in the fridge. You can also use italian dressing if lemon and olive oil is too boring for you

Hope you like!

Roast root veggies like potatoes, beets, or whatever you like!

Just cut them into bite-sized chunks, toss them into a big bowl with seasonings (whatever you like - I do one random herb, whatever you have, dill or whatever, with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne if you like it hot!) and toss in olive oil. Transfer to a baking sheet, or a few pieces of tinfoil if you don't have a cookie sheet. Roast at 400 until they're fork-tender!

I second Mwar's bean salad. I make this all the time. It's just as awesome with a mixture of other beans. For a party, I'll use one can of cannellini (white) beans, one can of red kidney beans, and one can of garbanzo beans.

Like Mwar said, it's affordable, quick, no-cook, and delicious!

The longer it sits in the dressing, the more delicious it will be!

A meal that I think would be easy to make and quick that I love to make.

Get some already cut boneless chicken
A bag of broccoli
Some penne noodles
Jar of Alfredo sauce

You can make chicken Alfredo and it is delicious. I would pick up two packages of the chicken. 2 jars of the sauce. With the Penne and the broccoli you can get two meals out of that but if it is just u by yourself I would just use half of the chicken and save the rest for another day.

The recipe I made tonight is a good, easy one. First I seared pork chops until just done (you don't want to overcook them because they'll later simmer in the sauce for a few minutes.) I removed them from the skillet and sauteed sliced onions and green bell pepper until soft and onions are translucent. Add some salt, pepper, thyme, and crushed red pepper to taste when you add the veggies. At the last 15 seconds or so, add a clove or two of chopped garlic (you don't want it to burn..burnt garlic is nasty!) Then add a 15 oz can diced tomatoes and a 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes. Simmer, covered, for 15 mins. Add chops back and simmer a few mins just until chops are reheated. Serve over white or brown rice.
