Hey Farrah,

I work for a water plant and there is no way those two cups of water are FREE, unless you have a well. Did you know that we only drink 5% of all water used for a household? Sincerely, Judith

PS: I'll try your recipe, sounds goooood.

This was delicious. Very easy and cheap. I just added a little garlic powder and seasoning salt.

Very funny Judith. LOL. We do have a well, so our water was free, but at one time we lived in the city & had to pay for the water, so I know all about EXPENSIVE water. :) Take Care, Farrah

WELL, Farrah, even you had to pay for the electricity to pump the free water out of your well.

Why not splurge. Tomato juice (unsalted) instead of water. Now it's a $11 meal. Serve it on Sundays.

Thanks Farrah! I will use ground pork since it's cheaper where i am and a little tastier.(it's pretty lean ground pork also)

It sounds delis. You could even have it over noodles or pretty much any kind of pasta. Even cheaper! :)
