NPR is asking for readers to submit meals that will feed four that come in under $10. There are over 300 recipes submitted so far!
Many of the recipes contain rice and beans -- the cheap pantry staples -- but some are so creative and fun! Sweet potato kale quesadillas, brined pork with strawberry chutney, Moroccan chicken tagine, and on and on.
An entry from William Hovey Smith takes us way beyond rice and beans with a recipe for road kill deer stew. Luckily for us, William has a book coming out soon: Backyard Deer Hunting: Converting Deer to Dinner for Pennies Per Pound! I think I speak for everyone, William: Thank you for this amazing gift to literature.
