Above is one of the soup meals I often make. This is a chili soup with homemade bread. It is really good on a cold day.
For dinner I fixed chicken and rice soup. I had some chicken stock in the freezer from a chicken we had last week. I added some carrots, onion, celery, garlic and some rice bought in bulk at Sams. I also added two chopped up chicken breasts. I made grilled cheese sandwiches to go with it. I buy bread at the outlet for $1 a loaf and bulk buy sliced cheese from Sams. It is a pretty cheap meal. Plus there is plenty of leftover soup for Steven and I to eat for lunches. This is one of the many ways that I make the budget stretch.
