Yep, or canned chili.  
PBJ
frijoles
tortillas
hot dogs
eggs (these used to be cheap)



Rice. Rice with everything. Especially eggs and frozen veggies. Add a hamburger patty if feeling spendy.

Same here. If I had a more expansive budget, I'd move up to Hamburger Helper and actually buy some hamburger to add in.

I cooked on a single electric burner on my window sill and had a pot and a skillet. Ramen drained over frozen vegetables was a favorite. If I have a little extra cash, the local grocery store sold odds and ends of meat in packages labeled stew cubes. I would stir fry that in the skillet with frozen vegetables.

I loved:



- Chicken breast cooked on my George Foreman, paired with a bag of chicken flavored rice;

- Tuna Helper, but with canned, cooked chicken instead of tuna;

- Tacos.




I worked a lot (3 jobs) so I didn't have to resort to Ramen.

Ramen noodles. Tea. Buttered noodles with some garlic.

All made in a little electric teapot type of thing.

Two packs of ramen noodles--throw away seasoning packet.  Strain out the water.
A copious pat of butter or margarine.

I had two full time jobs, a part timer at the mall, and twice the credit load as any college student I met. It was hard making time for my super model girlfriend though. LOL, seriously, I feel bad for anyone that missed out on being a poor college student.  

If I had milk, bread and bacon, I could eat for weeks.

Quesadillas, cheese is cheep, so is salsa, tortillas last a good long while in the fridge and are also cheep.

There used to be a gut truck outside my voc tech school that sold $1 rice bowls with a little chicken (Cat maybe )  in them. They had a line a mile long.

I lived on $10 a day in college.  I got a $5 dollar Mad Mushroom single topping large pizza and a $5 twelve pack of Beast Light and made it last for lunch and dinner. I changed the pizza topping, but did this almost every day in school.

Boiled potatoes because that's the only way I knew how to cook them.

In between jobs, my grandpa bought me a 20lb sack, boiled potatoes is what I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two weeks.

Ramen in a hot pot with an egg thrown in and stirred up.

Veggie sub from subway. Not because I was vegetarian but because you could buy one with spare change fished out of seat cushions and under the floor mats in the car.

I used to raid the dumpsters at McD's then sell the still boxed and wrapped burgers to students in the dorm.  I wasn't a poor college student then and would buy groceries and good shit to eat.

I fucking loooved Dinty Moore Beef Stew!
Link Posted: 1/2/2016 5:36:15 PM EDT
I did dish and pan washing in a cafeteria so I usually had a decent meal provided every night.

Couldn't bring food home, though- as I'd be dumping entire pans of lasagna down the disposal, I'd be thinking of the Mac and Cheese, ramen, or Totino's Party Pizza I would be having on my days off.

I remember a buddy and I would go hit the Godfather's Pizza buffet after not eating all day and attempt to get our money's worth, plus some!

There were several "salvage grocery" stores in the area so I'd load up on institutional-sized cans of tomatoes, pasta, etc. And hit the "discounted for quick sale" vegetables in the produce section.

Tons of spaghetti sauce

Italian lentil soup

Pasta Fazool (do you see a pattern here?)

Vegetarian "chili" using TVP to extend the ground beef.

don't recall ever eating ramen during college. That shit is awful.
