Dinner in a Dorm--Recipe Ideas for College Students, Please!

I used to live in a house with like...15 other people and I had a couple of standbys:
My dad's shepard's pie: Layer in large (tin) roasting pan
Brown 1.5 pounds of ground beef with 1 medium diced onion. Season with salt and pepper: layer 1
Cover with 2 cans cream corn mixed with one corn of regular corn
Top with garlic mashed potatoes (one 5lb bag mashed with butter, garlic, and milk, sometimes I add shredded parm)

Run fork over top to create little ridges (get nice and crispy) Dot top with butter before baking at 325 degrees for about 1 hour until top is browned. Serve with crusty bread.
I made this last week and it cost me 13 dollars. It is sooo much food and it is super simple and amazingly yummy. Everyone I lived with loved it (from picky guys to foodie girls)

Also: spaghetti with a good red sauce is delicious. I brown sausage, add red sauce, chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions and garlic and let it go all day until dinner.

My favorite cold cereal is _____

Anyone ever had cracklin' oat bran? It is pretty much the best thing EVER.

Sample Thanksgiving Dinner Menus

*Brined Turkey (Alton Brown's recipe is perfection)
*Bread stuffing with onions, green and red peppers, and chestnuts
*Mashed potatoes with homemade gravy
*Roasted asparagus and tomatoes with evoo and garlic
*Arugula and endive salad with pecans, dried cranberries, goat cheese and a maple balsamic vinegarette
*Pecan, Apple and Pumpkin Pie

I love brussel sprouts too so some years I will serve roasted brussel sprouts and onions with real maple syrup or port wine reduction


Sausage Kale Soup. I put kale in everything lately and this soup turned me on to it.
Brown one pack of sausage in soup pot (sweet or spicy- ur choice) until almost done. Add chopped onion, garlic, red and green pepper. Saute 2-3 minutes. Deglaze with splash of white wine. Add s+p, pinch each of rosemary, thyme, and cumin. Add red pepper flakes to taste. Pour in low sodium chicken or veggie stock and simmer for 20-30 minutes Add a bunch of chopped kale to the pot about 5 minutes before serving. Top with a bit of grated parm cheese. It is so so yummy. I always adjust the seasonings a bit and I've done it with beef broth and red wine and it was just as good. I change it a little bit each time I make it (which is like once a week haha)
