Recipe by lazyme

I was looking thru some of my old recipes and ran across this one. Wow - what memories this brings back! I was in my early 20's, and lived in Texas. We had little money while my 1st DH was in the Air Force. We only got paid once a month, and so we and all of our 'Air Force' neighbors would have lots of potlucks for dinner the last week of the month, lol. Someone might have a little bit of meat - but nothing else. Someone else might have a little bit of veggies, or rice, or beans, or pasta, but no meat. We got very creative with our meals by joining efforts and ingredients! And to this day - some 40 years later - I still recall these memories with warmth, a big grin on my face - and alot of humor, lol. Some of the best meals I've ever had - and some of the worst! This recipe reminds me of those days. This one is simple, cheap - and good!!
