I have many fond memories of meatloaf. It smells so yummy when it's baking. It's super easy to make and best of all, it's relatively inexpensive. Below is one of my favorite versions of meatloaf. You can use different types of meat if you like.
Herb crusted chicken breast is easy to prepare using fresh or dried herbs. Ready in under 30 minutes, this is a good choice for busy cooks.
I am a huge fan of Giada DeLaurentis of Everyday Italian at the Food Network. Her recipe for Gourmet Italian Potatoes, Tomatoes and Green Beans has quickly become one of our favorite side dishes. It's super easy to make and for about $5, you have a delicious tasting, healthy side dish that will serve four.
Make a cheap, yet tasty gourmet lunch meat sandwich from a few simple ingredients that you likely already have in your refrigerator or kitchen pantry.
