What? I thought my mother made up this recipe! She told me she did! You mean.......this has been done before?

BBFT, btw, has your baby gorilla stolen BH's new puppy?

well...putting chicken in the oven...i think it goes back aways. LOL


When the wife and I first got married i had a congressional recipe book with someone's chicken recipe being to put chicken thigh (with skin) into a dusting of flour, set it on a cookie sheet with a pat of butter on top and a sprinkling of lemon pepper. Roast for 45 minutes.

After I tasted mother's I've always thought chicken thighs were underrated. They are actually quite good. I think she removed the skin because, cholesterol, and junk. Haven't tried them with the skin on.

Anyway. It's a cheap meal. Buy a big family pack of them for not a lot of money. I still like 'em.

soups and stews are in my opinion very cheap food. Not only cheap but very nutritious and easy to make.
If you have a wood-stove or such you won't even need electricity or gas.
You can put in what you like and just leave it on the stove for couple hours and voila.
Easy to store in the fridge or freezer and you can even use parts of it to make sauces.

Another cheap veggie i like is potatoes. Cheap to buy and you have lots of possibilities to prepare them.
Boiled, mashed(with or without other veggies), french fries, in the oven or on the bbq, stuffed, you can make chips,... i'm sure i forgot some.

Making your own bread can be cheap but it depends on what bread you want.
The cheapest and fastest off course is flat bread, water and flour and you're good to go(fun to do with the kids also).
But it's not just fun to make your own bread, there is something "ancient" about it

And after you made the perfect hamburger buns and baguettes, you're sold.

Got a bunch of cheap healthy recipes. The problem is i rarely write them down.
If you been cooking for years it all gets very familiar and you just invent recipes on what you have in the fridge.

Don't freak too much with expired food. If it looks good, smells good, it will probably taste good

I love this thread. I find I'm the most creative with food when there's little food in the house. It's what got me into cooking (somewhat) when my family dealt with borderline poverty and I had to cook for myself.

Here's what I like to call "Irish breakfast".

You set a non stick fry pan to mid high. Fry up 4 pieces of bacon. Leave the oil. Dump a bunch of sliced up raw potatoes and flip repeatedly to make hash browns. Once they are brown and crispy, push the hash brown's to one side of the fry pan. Put some oil in the other side of the pan and drop a couple eggs to fry. Put a lid on it so the yolk's cook. I like to break the yolks in my hash browns. With a little sriracha or texas pete.

Then you would have cooked the booze out!!

Just pour yourself a glass of whiskey before I revoke your Irish membership card.
