I forgot my *world famous cabbage soup. A couple sausage links cut up and browned, or not. A pot full of water, half a head of cabbage, about .5C wine vinegar, a bunch of Tabasco, a bunch of black pepper, and some salt. Simply heat until cabbage is tender and/or sausage is safely cooked.

*World famous is a bit of an extrapolation. My daughter really likes it  :^D

poor folk food for me growing up was, whatever we could find in the woods within a mile of the house, some during the day, like deer, squirrel and rabbits, but the rest were night animals, like coons, possums, hogs, frogs and other such 4 legged critters and not to mention, aquatic swimmers, both day and night. 

nowadays, it is cabbage and ham hocks, or sausage, or what a former supervisor would cook, taters, onions, garlic, some kind of meat, but i added shrooms to it, and cabbage at times. 


granted i wouldn't call it poor food, but i ate on that pan of food for 3 days, 2x a day, but took a break and made lettuce wrap burgers, which i ate for 2 days 2x a day to mix the meals up. the tater surprise and lettuce wraps cost me $25 and supplied me with chow for 5 days, 2 x a day, for a total of $2.50 per meal. and with $50 a day per diem, i was able to repurpose the rest for something else.
