Recipes or recommendations please?

I need some recipes or a web site for low cost recipes for 2. Nothing to fancy, my 17 year old daughter isn't exactly picky but she doesn't care for fancy. She likes casseroles, rice and pasta dishes, and chicken. Thank you.

For a website how about right here at DC?

Lots of great stuff when you take the time to look.
Yes it can be time consuming but don't all good things in life take time?

you can always just post a thread stating "iso something inexpensive to make with" whatever you have on hand that day, or plan for the next.

that way you can ask your daughter what she wants for dinner, then we'll help you pull it off.

If you have some pre-cooked seasoned hamburger on hand, you can do all kinds of things. In the good old days, I could stretch a couple pounds of hamburger to make a week's worth of meals. The night you cook it, season with your favorite seasoning....onions, garlic, salt, pepper and package it up in baggies for the freezer, leave a portion in the pan to make spaghetti sauce for that night and a night later in the week. During the week toss a baggie into the micro wave to thaw then make tacos, or SOS, any of your favorites that require cooked, crumbled meat. The same thing would work for shredded pre-cooked chicken.

Thank you, these are all good ideas! Never thought of the precooked seasoned meat. That's brilliant! :)
