My husband goes in for a total hip replacement tomorrow and I just had a C-Section 4 weeks ago. I need some good, hearty, easy and cheap meals to make when he gets home. Ideas PLEASE. Thanks!

He doesn't like lamb, no allergies.

Spaghetti and meatballs, chili, baked chicken (BBQ, lemon pepper, etc) and rice, hamburger helper. Those are my go to's when I need something easy. The first two are cheap, fast, and you can make a lt then heat up leftovers.

Anything in the crock pot ... I like to make beef, pork, or chicken w tons of veggies I like to add cream of mushroom soup to make it heartier. You can turn the left overs into a pot pie a couple of night later even.

Do you have any recipes you care to share?

Sometimes we buy beef stew and just pour it over rice. Or put chili over mashed potatoes to make it last longer

I make meat loaf. 2 lbs of meatloaf, one box of stuffing, 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup bbq sauce, 1 egg. Mix it all together. Form 4 small loafs and bake in a cake pan at 350 for half an hour. SOOOO good. put more bbq sauce on top if youd like.

I just use what ive got! I try to always use fresh veggies, if you only have canned or frozen just add them a little later. Ill tell ya what Ive got in the crock right now ... 1lb beef roast (whole), 4 carrots peeled and chopped, 1 large onion, about 6 red potatoes (quartered), 2 small cans of cream of mushroom soup, and about 2 cups of water. When its almost ready I will add a can of sweet peas! I cook the roast on high for at least an hour with just the water and cream of mushroom, then I add the veggies and let it cook on low for how ever long you feel! Usually about 4-5 hours! I hope this helps some!
