Suggest thread stoppage....similar post linked above. Even though the op didn't respond to any replies, this thread hijacker needs to be put down.


ChuckNasty,

Probably the reason why the OP did not respond to some of the replies (he did reply to some) is that he is not on the same time zone as you guys in the USA... there are other people on this great big planet of ours if you didn't know already!?

A little consideration from your behalf would have been very respectful methinks?

Kindest respects

Rodinus

Ps. We all make mistakes sometimes!

Rocking thread, just wanted to say thank you for the tip, growing up my
mother always made her own spaghetti sauce in a similar way, she
added oregano and a few other spices as well, not sure which ones
as i was very young lol

Another lower cost filling food is a homemade chili, add a little bit of
ground cumin for an amazing burst of flavor. that is one of my favs.

Nope

I just filled the bellies of kids with a cheap effective slow energy release meal
edit on 17/3/13 by cody599 because: (no reason given)


ehh, I just buy a 20lb bag of jasmine rice. Lasts long enough to make economical sense. You can add butter, pepper, soy sauce, vegetables. + the $7 dollar 10lb bag of chicken parts from walmart...

Ah, yes, I've used this trusty recipe myself a time or two... I think I used to call it...oh yeah, Pasta plus whatever's around that could feasibly or semi-feasibly go well with pasta, including preferably some sort of a sauce and maybe some spices, and some parmasan cheese if you're lucky... Oh only the fake yellow slices of cheese that come in those clear opaque plastic wrappers? To Hell with it... Throw em in!

Something that none of us here on this thread have come up with yet are the following :

Eggy bread (Gypsy toast)

Bean on toast (Skinheads on a raft)

I have my own version for both so if you are interested give me a shout and will try during the day to share.

Oh no, it's only 10:10 am here and my mouth is watering already!... Awww nuts... bang goes the diet i guess, time for a cheese and onion flavoured crisp sandwich!

Kindest respects

Rodinus

Hi guys

Been unemployed and screaming for a decent meal a while ago and thought what the hell do I do ?
Then I tried this

Soften some chopped onion in a little olive oil (any oil will do). Add a tin of chopped tomatoes and a squirt of tomato sauce (ketchup or catsup). Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes.

Cook the pasta

Adjust to taste with a pinch of salt, or pepper, or ground black pepper, or Worcester sauce or garlic (although it is probably better to add the garlic at the onion stage).

If you have left over meat and want to add it feel free

Stir into cooked pasta. Yum!

Cody


Oregano is a must gives a great flavour to your recipe

Sometimes you have to do whatever you can in order to feed your
hungry children and yourself.My husband was born at the tail-end
of the great depression.He remembers many times of just having
ketchup and bread to eat.


My mom told me they used to eat dandelion greens when they had nothing else. She was born in 1935. Thanks for the post, OP. I'll try it out

"Poor Man's Spaghetti".....

Sauteed chopped garlic and some red pepper flakes in olive oil....set aside as soon as the garlic changes color.

Boil pasta....and discard all the water EXCEPT enough to cover the cooked pasta.

Fry 3 or 4 eggs in a little butter....do NOT let yoke harden.

Slide the eggs into the pasta and break the yokes with a fork and mix in the water with fork.

Pour the cooked garlic/red pepper flakes with the olive oil into the pot with pasta and egg.

Chop parsley and add at last moment before serving.

Your plate would have some of the water from the pot so as to keep the pasta from sticking together.


have been with money and without......this recipe will serve you well.

Beans are cheap and nutritious - they can be the foundation of cheap eating. As one cowboy summed up his life on cattle drives: "Damn little pay, and damn many beans." On a more positive note, the ancient Egyptians used a depiction of a bean as the hieroglyph for "life." Here's my personal offering, and it makes a good meal with chips or crackers:

Laz's Post-Missouri Bean Dip

Now who put the “dip” in the “Dip-da-dip-da-dip”?
I did!

Here’s the backstory on this dip. Years ago, there was a little eatery in the Waldo area of south Kansas City called Sancho’s. Among other dishes, they served an appetizer called “Chilie Con Queso,” which was a concoction of beans, cheese, and chips. I loved it so well, I noted what it seemed to contain and tried to reproduce it at home. After a while I was making it just like Sancho’s, but after moving to New Mexico, I tried it once again. My wife made suggestions, and it underwent refinements. Most importantly, ingredients improved, and the taste got hotter, but better. Now, I have got it so well down that I can offer a recipe, as follows:

6 cups canned or cooked pinto beans, undrained
1 4oz can of diced green chilies
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of ground chipotle chilie
3/4 – 1 cup of salsa (cook’s choice)
1 –2 cups shredded cheese
1 bouillon cube (cook’s choice) Laz uses tomato/chicken
other spices/seasonings to taste
a little water if too thick

heat the lot in a saucepan, on low heat for the sake of the cheese
mash contents or (recommended) use a hand blender

enjoy!

Sounds good

I'll try it on the wife first though

Is it a bit of a blanket raiser ?
