Favorite Poverty Meal?
« on: August 07, 2018, 12:38:54 AM »
As a little kid (heck I still dig it) I remember us doing the really cheap minute rice, the real cheap bar s franks, and either ketchup or some other kind of sauce to give it some kind of flavor. What was/is your favorite poverty meal?

Not really a "poverty" meal, but standing joke in our house that we are down to eating Salmon and Avocado pizza. 

Look it was the night before we usually go to the supermarket, and we were a bit low ingredients. I had a scrounge around and found the last avocado in the fridge, and a small tin of Salmon in the cupboard. Home made pizza base and some cheese and tomato and we were good to go.  :D

We go "upmarket" on the instant rice and get the pre-flavoured stuff. We keep a few packs in the cupboard as it bulks up a quick simple meal when you can't be bothered really cooking anything.

Growing up on a farm, with a Dad that was a keen hunter, we also get the venison and wild pork, and yeah, you didn't have to buy it, so I guess it counts. Along with the rabbit and eel I would catch, we ate pretty well really.  :D

Back when my family was young I fed us rabbit.
In the winter I would cruise the back roads at dusk and shoot them as they sat by their holes.
Got 43 in about 3 weeks and we had rabbit every way imaginable.
Cant stand the thought of it now.

   I can remember when we first got married and times were tight buying lots of turkey necks which were pretty cheap. They made really good turkey & rice or T& dumplings and good turkey stew or soup.

   Seems like back then we could buy a 3 lb box bacon pieces real cheap. We'd use it for seasoning on salad or to grease the pan to make fried rice or such. Another cheap meal we still like is fried cabbage & hot dogs.  Fry a piece or two of bacon to grease the pan and for seasoning, cut a pack of hot dogs crossways into cubes then fry them brown, coarsely chop a head of cabbage and cover with a lid and simmer till it is soft. Lightly salt and go heavy on the black pepper. Serve with cornbread. Makes a great one dish camping meal except for the cornbread.

Shepards Pie. Ground beef, potatoes, frozen peas, carrots, and onion. Leftovers were converted into soup by adding broth and blending into a puree. Cost was about $5 to feed a family of 6 for two or three meals.

anything we could catch or kill.  I am told during WWII my father killed jackrabbits out in Colorado, and mom would can them for later use.  Mom canned everything, so not unusual to see a mason jar sitting on the sink.

When we first moved out here, my wife never had sour cream or black olives before - and she loved them at first taste!  We were young and poor - we ate a lot of bean-cheese-black olive-sour cream burritos.  Like 2 or 3 times a week.  Probably less than $2 a meal for the two of us!  To change it up, pan fry them and have chimmichungas (sp) served on a bed of lettuce.
