From Raising Arizona

Ear-Bending Cellmate: ...and when there was no meat, we ate fowl and when there was no fowl, we ate crawdad and when there was no crawdad to be found, we ate sand.

H.I.: You ate what?

Ear-Bending Cellmate: We ate sand.

H.I.: You ate SAND?

Frankly I’m thinking that having grown up very poor will be an advantage for me. I don’t get stressed about what I lack.

One brick of ramen noodles(oriental flavor)
one can of corn
one can of peas (not sweet peas, the other kind)
2 eggs

Cook up the ramen noodles like normal. When they’re done, dump in the corn and peas(strained).

In another pan, scramble 2 eggs. Mix in the scrambled eggs when they’re done.

Tastes like a cross between fried rice and egg drop soup. You can improve it a little by adding meat of some kind. I’ve used a can of tuna before...also I’ve used some leftover turkey meat from thanksgiving. And now that I’m thinking about it, I’ve used bologna too.

Nothing cheap about Spam any more. You can buy canned ham cheaper. In fact Boneless Pork Loin at Food Lion is probably the best buy for the money anywhere. Friggin Chicken is out of sight. Turkey isnt too bad.

Yep. It is sick. It goes downhill from there I am afraid. My source is a minister who had to leave the area, they had lived there all their lives, and know exactly what the downlow is, EVERYONE who is anyone in Chicago is part of it, and part of the party circuit in Chicago. It’s the quintessential definition of “On the Downlow” Thats where the phrase comes from.

We have Meijer stores near us. They just had it on sale last week for $.50 a box.

Check out Sams Club if you have the card. I think its about $.60-.65 a box.

Aldis house brand ain't too bad, probably below $.50 a box

I now recall an episode of Law and Order where they talked about being on the “downlow” with respect to some adult married men having “relationships” and claiming they were playing poker. Hey, if adult men . . . None of my business. But young boys? These men should be pistol whipped.

We have two Meijer stores in town. Personally I prefer them to Walmart. I can actually buy locally grown veggies at Meijers.

Double Lives On The Down Low
By BENOIT DENIZET-LEWIS
Published: August 3, 2003
In its upper stories, the Flex bathhouse in Cleveland feels like a squash club for backslapping businessmen. There’s a large gym with free weights and exercise machines on the third floor. In the common area, on the main floor, men in towels lounge on couches and watch CNN on big-screen TV’s.

It was the cleanest article I could find to share. Now excuse me while I go shower. TMI

It’s less expensive to actually get real cheese, macaroni noodles and a little butter and milk and make your own. Tastes way better than the powdered stuff.

Sounds like a good idea.

I keep a lot of spices on hand, and then I can mix n match a lot of meals. In hard times I used to make a lot of cornbread and hamburger soup.

Hamburger Soup
It is an easy fix using same size of 1 can of mixed veggies, and 1 can of diced tomatoes, a can of water or chicken broth, saute 1 sm diced onion, 1 tblspn chopped garlic(opt) with 1/2 -1 lb ground beef (your taste) in frying pan until done, drain and add to soup pot with veggies, broth and diced tomatoes. Now I cheat and keep in my refrigerator a jar of chopped garlic...so a tbspn here or there is easy. I use pinches of cumin seed, dry basil and crushed rosemary to soups and with salt and pepper to taste (some like 1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes too) it tastes great.

We make a basic cornbread...simple:
Heat oven to 400 degrees
In bowl mix:
2 c. self rising cornmeal, sifted
1/2 c. self rising flour, sifted
1/3-1/2 tspn salt to taste
3/4 c. buttermilk
add some tap water (1/4 c?) to get to a cake mix consistency....pour in well oiled pan...prefer canola oil.
Bake 40 min to 1 hr until very brown...test with toothpick

Now, with chili, soup or beans you have a great bread....cheap...without a bunch of additives.

Yep. Growing up poor was a good thing; made me thankful for what I did have - and more so all the time. A lot of “stuff” is just redundant anyway.
