Sandwiches

Sandwiches are a great frugal, and thrift friendly meal.  Too often we only eat them for lunch.  They are also great for dinner, with a bowl of soup.  We are usually rushed for time and serve pretty simple sandwiches for lunch.  You can take them up a notch by serving them with fried onions, or toasted specialty breads.

Or you can mix together the ingredients for sandwich filler recipes.  Save leftover meat for sandwich filling. Put it in the blender to chop it into small pieces, and then add a little mayonnaise.  Save money having sandwiches for dinner.
