What is the same old thing?

Beans and rice are cheap.

Anything with eggs, is usually fairly cost-effective, too.

Meatballs and spaghetti. Baked beans and hotdogs. Chili. We don't know what the same old thing is to you.

You can roast a whole chicken and make stuff from it for days, including using the carcass to make stock for future soup.

Well, I like to cook lentils, add a can of creamed corn. It is not pretty, but it is cheap, yummy, filling, and protein rich.

Hot dogs stir fried with onions and peppers, add some soy sauce serve on rice. Or ramen noodles drained.

Easy Chicken Casserole Recipe - Allrecipes.com

This is easy, cheap, and good. Add what ever kind of herbs you like to spice it up a bit...I sometimes use garlic powder and paprika...etc It just depends what kind of mood I'm in.

Stuffed bread is inexpensive to make and delicious. I either make my own bread dough or you can buy it frozen (right now it's about $2 for 2 loaves of frozen dough at my supermarket). Roll the dough out then put on toppings, I use leftovers from sunday dinner such as ham or turkey and the veggies, add some cheese and roll it up tucking in sides as you roll. Put on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
