Question by Samantha: What are some cheap, easy, reasonably healthy dinners that a full time student can make quickly?
I’m moving out soon and will need to cook my own dinners, which i do already at home, so i can cook, its just that i’ll have to pay for it myself!
My favorite foods to eat are potato, eggs and any kind of meat, but i like anything that doesnt have vegetables in it!
If anyone has some good websites for cheap, easy recipes that would be good too!

Quick, cheap and very easy: ramen soup, but “soup” it up with a little leftover chicken, diced, and some frozen mixed veggies.
If you have access to an oven, baked chicken will make you very popular! Serve with roasted potatoes, onions and carrots. Then, you can use the leftovers in things like the ramen (above), or chicken salad sandwiches, or fried rice.
Fried rice: Take some leftover steamed rice, and fry it in a skillet. Add a lightly beaten egg, and some frozen veggies, and maybe some chopped chicken or ham. This is very good with oyster sauce and sam bal (spicy Chinese pepper paste).
Omelettes also make a great, cheap breakfast, lunch or supper. Add anything you like to the insides: cheese, fried onions and mushrooms and peppers, ham . . . chicken (you knew that was coming, didn’t you? LOL!)
Baked potatoes stuffed with spaghetti sauce or cheddar cheese or chicken and swiss are all pretty economical and filling.
Good luck, and have fun!
