and I bought Mac & Cheese for the first time in 20 years!!!!
LOL wait till you get to the point of making ketchup tomato soup.
Crack and meth parties?
when we ate mac and cheese three times a week it was .18 cents just bought two boxes now $1.75
probably more like coke and Dom perignon
Hey, my kids just got their new snack this week. Ramen noodles.
Thank goodness they like it.

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?
Ear-Bending Cellmate: That’s right!

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.
And dont’ forget the 50 million spent for the 5 retreats for democrats working on the first stimulus bill....
Keep in mind that The One is from Chicago.
Hey how about a thread of cheap great tasting recipes for those who are struggling. I have many, as I was a single parent for years...and I will share if others will????
Hey they can party free, we get to pay. Typical, so typical and yea, I mean what you think I mean.
One brick of ramen noodles(oriental flavor)
one can of corn
one can of peas (not sweet peas, the other kind)
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.
Add thyme, it makes it a bit more savory.
You forgot the little boys.
I mix leftover spaghetti sauce into my mac n cheese to make it more palatable. I also mix tuna and peas in with mac n cheese.
Not you... lol Sorry I was being sick and honest. The down low which the Obama’s are part of in Chicago is known for its use of young boys.
No I am not making it up.
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.
Oh, Crap. Seriously? That’s just sick.
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.
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.
I am thinkin thats a bit too light a punishment. Eye for an eye, or a broomstick.........
Depends upon how you use the pistol.
Either this is just damned funny, or it’s racist (depends upon who is being asked).
I made that one on election night. I considered the Jeffersons but George Jefferson was a rabid capitalist.
Well, oKAY then!
Ayers with the shotgun had me rolling.
I had to educate myself.

Double Lives On The Down Low

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’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.
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.
I hear ya man.
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good point. You win! lol
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.
Oh and I bake the cornbread in a stainless steel round cake pan.
Its very good with ground beef, too.
I forgot to mention, THAT’s the guy now living in the White House.
No wonder the world is LAUGHING it’s collective ass off at us.
Thanks for recipe as I love oriental food..the easier the better.
Sad that us common folk are discussing how to make cheap food while we fork over our hard earned dollars so the O’Dictators can live it up and eat $100.00 a lb steak.
Damn! I suspected something like this.
I wonder if the Reverend Wright is in on this activity too??
