Favorite Gourmet Meal... for a dollar or less?

I'm thinking mine is buttered basmati rice, flavored with cardamom.

What's yours?

  1. White beans and greens on homemade rustic whole wheat bread. Gorgeous. Might have that for supper tonight, now that I'm thinking about it! :)

          And if we're using store brand grits and a factory farm egg, I think I can sautee some onion in butter in the bottom.

          1. Spaghetti with sauteed Dandelion greens, garlic and grated Pecorino.
