I have absolutely nothing to make for dinner, except for corn bread, which I'm really in the mood for.



What's good to go with it?
Something cheap.
I'll be feeding 3.

My dad makes a good 15 bean soup, but it's a crockpot meal that takes all day.

idk about 15 bean soup, but this one only takes 30 mins:

I usually do a crock pot one too, and use a ham bone for stock, but i've done the quick one with water. It's still good IMO. you can google the soup your dad makes and see if there is a "quick" recipe.

Do you think this would be good with cornbread?

thats really similar to tator tot casserole, and i wouldn't eat it with cornbread just cos it's soo filling. But, if it sounds good to you, who cares? Sometimes i'll make two totally random things if i want both.

I'd just add corn and maybe diced ham to the cornbread if that was the main thing I was wanting haha. I always eat corn bread with soup beans though, and that's just the jar of beans with onions, soy sauce, and ham...because that's how my mom made it.

I already have chicken, so maybe I could use chicken instead of hamburger....
