   As I remember it was often included in Indentured servants contracts in New England that they promised not to feed them lobster more that twice a week.

   Kind of like treatment of African slaves giving them the ribs and shoulders and such off the pig. They figured how to make slow cooked BBQ to make it tender and edible and the owners found out how good it was and they started keeping it for themselves.

Regular barn pigeons have more meaty breasts than most people would believe and with a small fishing net taped to a long pole they are easy to catch at night.

I'v heard the generation before me talk about being embarrassed about having to take lobster sandwiches on homemade bread to school, if they had the chance the would trade up to bologna sandwiches with store bought bread. 

Apparently it was not uncommon to put lobster in the garden as fertilizer, some still do but use culls from the lobster pound.

Roxie's meal, except in our house it was called SOS (military term).  It was actually THE weekend meal.

People in tennessee will sure trade pinto beans for lobster. 

Pickle wraps are pretty decent.  Spread mayo on a piece of bread.  Drop on a pickle and make a fist.  Its the corndog of the garden.

Fried squash sandwich with ranch.  The bacon is for frying grease.

Sorry Mike, but I gotta call a foul on that sammich.  There can be no poverty in anything that includes bacon or cheese.  Now if you were eating just the squash on bread...well yeah.  :)

I vote we give Belben a "Pass" on the store bought Bacon (he only has about 1/20th of a pound on his sammich). He has too many other "good idea" posts that make up for it.
Thanks, Mike (That does look good).

Fortunately the lobster sandwiches became defunt when i was about 10( father was no longer able to tend the pots due to nosey fisheries officers) 

My favorite poverty meal occurred on saturdays. Supper was home fried french fries . The cooking oil came from the lard pot,bacon fat etc that was saved overtime . These were the best tasting fries ever .
Nothing else was served with them except ketchup and vinegar.

My family always called that "Muskgo" You walk into to the kitchen and open all the cabinets, and start picking out all the things that must go, "This must go, this must go, and this must go"  :D
