THIS WEEKS FAST & FRUGAL DINNER

TODAY'S FAST AND FRUGAL DINNER IS...
VINNIE'S EGG NOODLE STEW!

(Note: this is how WE make it for our family of 7 hungry people... 6 eaters are male! You may want to half it as we ALWAYS have leftovers!)

1 Package Egg Noodles

2 Large Cans Beef Stew

1 can peas
drained
1 can corn
drained

~ Boil noodles per package instructions and drain
~ put noodles back in pan
~ Add beef stew, corn and peas

~ stir under low heat until desired temperature


DONE!

Story behind recipe: Our 8 year old son came into the kitchen carrying items from the pantry that he thought sounded good to eat on his dinner night. I spotted that they were all good choices so we decided to mix them all together...Voila! Great Family Meal! :-)

Yes, it looks "interesting" but it tastes and smells so good!
HAPPY FAST & FRUGAL EATING!

Hi Shelly~
I love going to the cabinets and pulling out random items and trying to make something with them, thats how the best meals come about!! Great idea, I may try it but would have to cut it way back since the most that I ever feed at my house is 2 hahaha
