    Look for a book called, “Where’s Mom now that I need her?” by Betty Rae Frandsen. It’s on amazon…Written for students on a budget. Decent cheap recipes that require minimum tools and cooking skills, and lots of other practical tips for surviving away from home…

    Here is a a recipe from the book.

    Toasty Chicken Salad Sandwiches
    1/2 Cup Cooked, cubed chicken (use canned as a substitute)
    1/2 cup celery slices
    2 teaspoon minced onion (substitute dried onions in case you cannot afford fesh)
    2 teaspoon lemon juice (buy the plastic lemon at grocery store)
    1/3 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    bread slices
    butter or margarine

    Combine chicken celery onion lemon juice mayonnaise and paprika. spread butter on top; top bread with a scoop of salad and spread to cover butter. Bake on cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Makes 2

    Good luck with college!

    My girls used ramen noodles alot. You can cook them and add chicken to them and some vegtables. you can make a cream sauce buy using the packet of seasoning and adding milk and a few slices of cheese. What about bagged salad mix and grilled chicken breast. You can do alot with canned biscuit, like mini pizza’s with spagetti sauce and some lunch meat. Pizza pockets.

    Not sure what’s available at your local grocery store, but where I live, canned tuna in sauces or curries are great to add to salad or rice. My favourite is Tuna in a Thai green curry sauce.

    I hear college students on campus eat a lot of ramen noodles they are super cheap. Me, well I’d probably have that with a lot of butter bread. How about a large bottle of Ragu spaghetti sauce and about 3 boxes of noodles (and parmesan cheese). And a bottle of Kraft cheese and a couple of boxes of elbow noodles. You can always add hamburger and hamburger helper to either of those to make them last longer. Hunts makes a good sauce for sloppy joes and all you do is add the hamburger (remember to buy bread or buns). You can always eat a lot of snacks like bagels and cheese, cheezits, etc. How about crackers and put tunafish salad and egg salad on them. Just hard boil a bunch of eggs and mix them with mayo and a little paprika and put that on bread. You can always make a huge 12 ingredient salad and have it for two days. You can make potato salad in a huge bowl and have it for three days. You can open a couple of cans of Campbells stew. When in college you don’t need to make a three course meal like you would at home. Somebody could always bring home some donuts or donut holes for snacking. Pizza is expensive. Tacos are expensive. You can buy a couple of fryer chickens and have those for a meal with a side dish, then use what’s left for sandwiches. (buy the fryers where you either boil, broil or bake them yourself…if you boil them then you can use the broth for soup and add some potatoes. Potatoes go a long way as far as meals are concerned, they go with everything and even by themself if you’re hungry…either white or sweet potatoes. You can bake a yellow cake in a long pan and put some icing on it and eat for a day or two. Rice cakes are good too for snacking. Remember to supplement with vitamins, and look forward to eating back home with your family for the holidays and bring food back with you.

    I had a good chuckle about the long winded recipes people who answered gave you….what they missed is that you’re ON A BUDGET. You couldn’t possibly afford any meals with a lot of ingredients if you’re on a budget. Probably too your schedules won’t be the same and instead of eating together you’ll just be grabbing food from the frig while you study.
