Cheap & Cheerful Suppers for Mid-October

  • nachos platter with chips, beans, rice, beef, peppers, tomatoes (no cheese -- all out)
  • apple wedges
  • celery sticks
  • oven-roasted sausage, vegetables, potatoes
  • pumpkin and sausage soup
  • brown rice or crackers
  • waffles with blackberry sauce and yogurt topping
  • bacon
  • applesauce
  • a delicious casserole of leftovers -- bacon, sausage, mushrooms, rice, zucchini, green onions, and turkey stock. You can't go wrong when leftovers are bacon and sausage.
  • steamed cauliflower
  • pecan pie
  • beef and bean chili from the freezer
  • baby carrots, celery sticks, olives, ranch dip
  • toast
  • looks like it will be another Friday night, frozen corndog and sweet potato fries dinner tonight. It's easy, quick, and had minimal cost. I'll also add some steamed cauliflower.
As this third week of the month winds down I am turning to treats hidden in the "secret" pantry, frozen goodies, and canned items. I bring a couple of packaged treats out of that secret pantry once per week. Yesterday I pulled out a box of granola bars and wheat thin-type crackers, as well as a can of frozen pomegranate juice concentrate from the freezer. We still have a lot of tasty foods in the house, so all is well. 
Anything especially good on your menu this past week? Have a wonderful weekend!
