If you are looking for easy and affordable recipes , you can always turn to Campbell's Soup! I love these vintage cookbooks I have collected over the years. Easy Ways to Delicious Meals, 1967:
Cooking With Soup, 1969:
And Most-For-The-Money Main Dishes, 1975:
Eighteen years later, Quick and Easy, featuring recipes utilizing Campbell's entire "Family 0f Fine Products", below. Savory Chicken and Mushrooms, there on the cover, looks really good to me :
And then there's also this one - Easy Summer Recipes from 1995:
If you don't have the cookbooks, just go to their website for lots of recipes. I love Campbell's soup - we always have a ton of it in our pantry. I enjoy soup for lunch in the summer, too - the choices are so plentiful!
