I start by making a white sauce, Texas. Melt 2 tbls butter or margarine in a saucepan, stir in 2 tbls of flour, then whisk in 2 cups of milk. Cook on medium heat, strring frequently, until thickened. Add torn pieces of dried chipped beef (I like the jarred kind), a can of drained mushrooms, and a can of drained peas. Season with a grind of black or white pepper. Serve over biscuits or toast.

Some people use cream of mushroom soup as a base, but I find it too salty with the already salty beef.

To make my white sauce, I usually beat the flour together with milk until smooth before I put it in the sauce pan (actually I use a double boiler though) this works for me to keep the flour from forming lumps...

I just make it the way my grandma taught me, and it's always good. Everone has their own way of doing things.
I've noticed a lot of you talk about cooking the flour for a few minutes, but I've never done that, and have never noticed any "floury taste". I guess it's all in what you are used to.

I'd always worried about a floury taste, but someone gave me a recipe for a cheese sauce that isn't even cooked. The cheese and flour are shaken together til the cheese is coated, then scalded milk along with the cheese/flour mixture is put into a blender, season with a bit of salt and ground mustard and blend. The sauce comes out great and never fails. Just use the regular amounts that you would use to make the usual cheese sauce.

I've got another "poor supper" that has been in my family forever....my grandma served it, my mom served it, and now I serve it. A lot of people have never heard of it.

Soupburgers - brown about a pound of ground beef, add two or three cans of vegetarian vegetable soup (depends on how far you need to stretch the meal), add some ketchup, mustard, and worchestire sauce to taste, and serve over cheap hamburger rolls

Nothing special, but its so good. And quick, easy and cheap. Sometimes I'll do a bag of french fries with it.

beans and rice with ham hock and greens of some type or pasta with red sauce and also greens (kale or chard is very good with pasta.) cheese isn't cheap, but if the rice and pasta were already in the pantry along with cans of tomatoes and beans, then I could spend the money on the ham hock, cheese and or a little ground meat, and the fresh greens. It can be done even today.
