I'm a single dad and my son is a very picky eater. For the last several months I've been living on a mighty tight budget. There are things I wanna cook because they are super cheap, but my son won't eat.

Recently, my son made a series of errors in judgement that led to the need for something ... punitive. In the end, he agreed to heartily consume five cheap meals.

First up: tuna hot dish!

It has been ten years since I made this. My memory is that I cook up some noodles, then in a casserole dish mix the noodles, one can of tuna, one can of cream of mushroom soup, one can of corn and bake for 45 minutes at 350.

Good enough?

(next up: chili!)

cooked noodles
throw in some cheese
can of tuna
peas or corn or neither
1/2 cup milk or cream
can of cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, or the cheddar soup depending on my mood
Sometimes I add bread crumbs to the top with parmasean cheese
bake around 30-45min at 350

I like to use canned chicken also in replace of the tuna

I have to say that as I read the title, my stomach actually flipped.

My mother used to make something similar to what you described, minus the corn. And she topped it with potato chips!

I guess I was a VERY bad child. I was punished this way 2-3 times per month!! (even worse: I was subjected almost as frequently to "Nut Loaf")

:roll:

Stir in a hand full of cheese and drop some more on top.

1: I thought struck me! When I was in high school, I was elected to "cook" in the school rock climbing club. Not because anybody had tasted any of my cooking, but only because I knew a lot of dirty jokes. I didn't realize that I would actually be required to cook anything (Later I learned that "cook" was the same as VP when I was promoted prez since the prez moved on - but that's another story for another day). So there was only one food substance that the cook makes: Glop. Noodles with tuna, soup and any other loose food ingredients tossed in (and three rocks - whoever gets the rocks does the dishes). Glop with marshmallows in it isn't as bad as you might think. So ..... last night, my son ate glop. I thought it was pretty good!

B: Button mushrooms - I'm gonna start a new thread.

you can instantly double your arsenal by taking whatever variation of glop you're making, sticking it into a pie crust, and calling it a "pot pie" - yum!
