Help! "Eat Like an Intern" contest at work.

My wife's work is having a food contest (and I'm the cook in the house, so of course I get to make this dish).
These are the instructions: "Eat like an intern"
The entire dish has to cost no more than $10to make. I can prorate staples.

This is definitely not my forte. Anyone have any delicious ideas?

What's interesting about this is that it's been years since I had an income like an intern, but I rarely spend more than $10 for the two of us for our entire dinner - and we eat really well. (That's not counting Mr T's beer or wine.) ;o)

I was thinking the same thing (although it's only been a few years since I was a resident)!

I'm wondering if the meal has to be for more than 2 people?

I calculated the cost of this, which I made last night with soba, napa cabbage and tofu that were all purchased at our Korean supermarket, at less than $4 for the two of us, with leftovers: https://food52.com/recipes... (I also added one carrot and about 1 1/2 cup of broccoli florets.) A satisfying dinner following a vigorous hike on a cool evening. ;o)

The Colcannon recipe on this site is a good one. https://food52.com/recipes... Red beans and rice (I make it without sausage sometimes) http://lonestargrassfed...
