One bag of dried pinto beans cooked two days earlier as part of a larger batch (most delivered to sick relative last night, spiced without salt). – two bucks.
One kielbasa, purchased at farmer's market – four bucks.
Two cups rice – one buck or less.
One onion, one tomato, purchased at same farmer's market – one and a half bucks.
Two large spoonfuls Chinese mustard, paprika – half a buck or less.
Cooked the sausage and the onion in a cast iron skillet, seasoned the beans with the mustard, paprika, and the tomato, which was chopped after a short boil. Tossed in the sausage after cutting, and onion, mixed well. Served over rice.
Best meal I've had in weeks.
