Recipe Title: Seared Tuna and Pasta

Take the tuna, 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan, get it real hot and sear the tuna. Serve on a bed of angel hair pasta w/ oregano from the herb garden and a simple salad of greens and sliced carrots. I like to squeeze a lime onto the tuna as it cooks. I make it a buck a serving.

Recipe Title: Kitchen Sink casserole

Ingredients: Rice, Beans, lentils, split peas, beef bouillon, barley, and water.

Rinse the items that need it. Soak the beans, lentils, split peas, and barley for several hours in cool water. After soaking, bring to a boil. Add rice and bouillon, reduce heat, and cook for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on taste.

This can be a soup, or a casserole - it's sort of in between, depending on how much liquid you use.
