    Frugal20, your soup recipe sounds delicious!

    asdazy, how do you make your chicken? that sounds wonderful too!

    Nakabi, soooooooo nice to see you. :)

    Old faithful for dinner tonight: homemade (broiled, not baked) mac & cheese, steamed broccoli. Cabot cheese was from the sale last week at Lowes with a coupon, broccoli last week's sale at HT, pasta from the stockple. The priciest item on the menu is a not-on-sale purchased cherry pie from HT. You all know I don't often buy anything premade, especially dessert! It was definitely a splurge.

    Barbiedoll - Never been one to use/follow recipes. I just add stuff to the pot...but here's a general idea.

    Ingredients: 1 roll pork sausage (we prefer sage sausage but any will work), 1 diced onion, diced potatoes (quantity depends on kind you use - red, gold, russet, etc.), 1 can cream corn, 1 can kernel corn, 1 can evaporated milk, potato flakes.

    Brown sausage (drain, if desired). Add onions and cook until soft. Add all other ingredients, except potato flakes. Simmer until potatoes are soft (~15 minutes). Add potato flakes as you go, for thickening only), until desired consistency.

    Very easy and fast meal. I get the chowder and cornbread on the table in less than 30 minutes total.

    This is enough to feed 3 adults and my 20M-old for dinner AND 2 adults and my 20M-old for lunch.

    (We like hot lunches (rarely have sandwiches for lunch) so the dinners I make always have to be portable for lunch as well)
