Hey, folks! When I first moved in with my girlfriend many many years ago I was a bit surprised to find that her and her dad rarely ever cooked homemade meals. The closest they'd usually get to it was a Stouffer's lasagna bake. Now I understand we don't all always have the money to cook the nicest fanciest meals, but many delicious recipes can be made for a rather reasonable price and it will feed you for a couple of days. Feel free to post your recipes, but try to keep the cost affordable. 10 - 25$ a meal is a preferable range, but if you've got something a little fancier be sure to tag it as such. I'll start with the Chicken Alfredo recipe I've been using a lot lately. Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Ingredients and approximate cost:Sauce:Milk - ~5$Butter - 2$8 oz Grated Parmesan Cheese - 3$Garlic Powder - 1$Cream Cheese - 2$Black Pepper - 1$Fettuccine Noodles or Wide Egg Noodles: 3$Meat:Two cans of chicken - 6$Total cost: ~24$Feeds two people for 2 - 3 days. Part one - NoodlesRequired Ingredients:One pack of noodles. (Fettuccine or Wide Egg Noodles.) First things first we'll want a pot big enough to house your noodles. Pour the noodles in the (Egg noodles work really well because they're fast, have a wide area for sauce, and you don't have to cook part of the noodle first and worry about breaking it like with Fettuccine)You can flavor the noodle water with a bit of oil, pepper, and salt.Bring the water to a boil and keep stirring to keep the noodles from sticking to the pot. Part two - SauceRequired Ingredients:Two cups of Milk1/2 cup of ButterOne 8 oz package of Cream Cheese6 ounces of grated Parmesan Cheese2 teaspoons of Garlic Powder1/8th teaspoon of Black PepperOptional: A pinch of ChivesSo you'll start by pouring 2 cups of milk into a sauce pan. Then you'll put a 1/2 cup of butter into it and bring it to a boil as you add the rest of your ingredients. Keep a whisk nearby and stir with it. You'll then add your 8 oz of cream cheese. Make sure to pinch off chunks and toss it in a bit at a time instead of all at once. The whisk will be your best friend here.As it begins to melt and all become liquid you'll add your Garlic Power, Black Pepper, and Chives if you opted them in.Part Three - ChickenPretty self explanatory. You'll remove the chicken from the cans, put it in a pan with a bit of water, and bring it to a boil as well so it will break down into strings. I usually jab at it with a spoon to speed up the process.At this time your noodles should be getting close to done, the sauce should be thickening up (turn it down off boil), and you'll just be waiting on the chicken to separate out into nice chunks.Part Four - Bringing it all together!So when your chicken is finished you'll pour it into a strainer. Once the chicken is strained you'll dump it into the sauce and stir well. Then you'll strain you noodles, pour them back into the big pot, dump the sauce it, stir, and serve!Enjoy, folks!Now lets hear your own affordable recipes!
