Help me stretch my budget with new 'old' recipes?
Looking for 'heritage' meals that might be technically challenging or time-costly, but use cheap ingredients.

I have all the time in the world to make meals from scratch (making stock the day before, simmering things for hours, and so on), but not a lot of money in my grocery budget.
Metafilter cooks of all cultures, do you have any low-cost traditional or regional dishes in your repertoire to suggest? For example, meals that use little meat, or cheap cuts.
I really want to hear about dishes if you regularly make them yourself, and that have a bit of history behind them - (more red beans and rice, less quick tuna pasta).
