Weekly Recipe

When you're penny pinching (like I am this week), fancy food just doesn't make it. Here's one way to stretch your grocery budget (and it really isn't that bad!):

Knuckle-Down Soup

1 can chicken noodle soup
1 package of ramen noodles (any flavor works)

Heat chicken noodle soup over stove. Add 1/2 can water (in addition to the can of water the directions call for...because you're using instant condensed soup, right? Right, because it's the cheapest.) When it boils, add in the instant noodles. No need to add the flavor packet. Stir occasionally for 3 minutes, until done.

Now you have enough chicken noodle soup to go around.
Delicious with saltine crackers, but even better with a grilled cheese, turkey, and tomato sandwich.

Good for a quick lunch, or unbelievably inexpensive dinner. Enjoy!
