    Here's another budget recipe and it's yummy (I'm making it tomorrow!)

    Tuna Apple Curry
    1 large can of tuna
    1 tbs marjarine/butter
    2 onions sliced
    3 - 4 apples, peeled & sliced (or you can buy a big can of pie apple from the supermarket)
    1 tbs plain flour
    2 tsp sugar
    2 tsp curry powder
    2 cups of stock or water
    2 tsp tomato chutney (optional)
    250g mushrooms or champignons (optional)
    2 tsp sultanas (optional)

    Melt marjarine/butter over low heat in frypan. Brown apples & onion until soft. Stir in flour, sugar & curry powder. Add mushrooms (if using) and cook for 1 minute. Add stock/water and stir under boils. Add tuna, chutney & sultanas and stir until heated through. Serve with rice/pasta/bread.

    Serves 4.

    Baked potatos- couple slices of bacon diced and cooked with a diced onion add to a thing of sour cream and some grated cheese and mix together. Pop the sauce over cooked potatoes, rewrap in foil and bake for another 10 minutes. If its your flavour (its ours lol) its so good, pretty fatty though
    Another recipe I found online involves a can of baked beans, sausages and some sliced cooked potatos layered in like a casserole/hot pot, sprinkle with some cheese if you have it and bake. Its really filling.
    My sister boils some chops in a tin of tomatoes throw in carrot/potatoes whatever you have thats good to.
    Finally this was my DD's fav food was a tin of tomatoes, red lentils then lots of diced vegies- carrot/onion/celery etc cooked togther. Kind of makes a soup, make it as thick as you like, meat could be added.

    i do these but i also grate carrot, zuchini, pumpkin, sweet potato, even throw in some corn somtimes. Oh and maybe bacon... They also freeze well, I freeze them and put in DS day care lunch box.

    I dont add flour just grated potato , veg ect and eggs

    Another one is cut up carrot, onion lightly browned in pan then add chops on top, slow cook until chops are done. Serve with mash! Sooo yummy, oh and cut off fat from chops!

    Spread two pieces of either bread or fruit loaf with marg cut up roughly into quarters or a little more and put into an small oven proof dish.
    Mix one cup of milk and one egg together poor over the bread in the dish
    optional of a small sprinkle of sugar or cinamon/nutmeg.
    Cook for about 15mins and serve as is or with some cream/icecream

    **2pieces of bread to every one cup of milk and 1 egg.

    for $3 (the cost of an average small pk of garlic bread) we can do a whole loaf of regular bread dressed up as garlic bread and the kids *love* it.
    Hmmm that sounds nice and we have a few of those crushed garlic jars in the pantry. Fresh garlic bread, yum, We're having pasta tonight too.
