This thread really needs to stay on the front page. I just got back from the grocery store and prices are all ready on a steady incline. I almost had a panic attack looking at the prices of the fresh fruits and vegetables. 7.99 a pound for strawberries. UNBELIVABLE! Anyway. I hope to continue to see this thread grow. We're going to need it.

Yesterday I bought grapes in my fruit/vegetables store and I paid $5.00 per pound. I used to pay $3.50, so I asked the cashier why it's so expensive? She replayed: "Just wait till summer. Most of our imports are from California". Of course, the drought and on top of that Florida had very cold weather with fountains freezing!

My grandmother had very big garden with vegetables and fruit trees. She used to marinate everything in jars and stored in the basement, like for example: Compotes, jams, fruits in syrup, tomato sauces, cornichons, carrots, green peas, small white onions, sliced cucumbers with salt/vinegar in juices, dill, green parsley, etc.

Irish Stew
(great to reheat over and over again)

potatoes
carrots
onion
beef pieces
Thyme
Beef stock or packet of beef soup.
Barley


Fill a pot with cold water and place on a heat to boil. Add to the water, 1/4 of your peeled potatoes, sliced carrots , A whole peeled onion, half cup off barley and beef. Portion per person as you see fit.

Bring to the boil Add add the stock or dried soup mix and 1/2 tbls Thyme.

Continue to boil and lower heat when the meat has cooked through. Add the other 3/4 peeled potatoes when the meat is tender.

Cook for an hour after on a low heat. Take the whole onion out before serving with crusty bread.
 Quoting: Vala


Vala, you got me with this one. LOL. I was thinking about posting pot of barley to be a good idea for recession meals. Fulfilling, healthy and tasty. In Canada we cook it without potatoes and add some green celery, and I cook my pot with chopped and fried onions inside.

I also cook barley soup the same way but with less barley and with potatoes. I like to add fried smoke bacon instead of beef but barely soup taste well with any meat inside. Once I made with turkey and it was good as well.

I love barley and lentils. I had a great lentil and barley soup in a restaurant when I was pregnant and I can't replicate it. It was mildly seasoned but perfectly tasting. Healthy and cheap too.

I don't have a Meijer near me, but I'm always looking at the local ads. You'll notice that there is a cycle that things go on sale. I try to stock up when the things we use the most go on sale.

Most of the meat we eat are from the buy one get one sales. Or from my monthly trip to Costco. Which carries excellent products by the way.

take a piece of chicken dip it into batter mix then drop it onto plate of breading with the hand you didnt pick the chicken up with flip the chicken over and the frying pan should be hot enough to set it in (never drop anything into a pan with hot oil or water because it will splash)

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Here is another inexpensive, fulfilling and easy dish. It may seems like a lot of ingredients but if you read the receipt actually is not – spices, but of course, it’s up to your taste. The best part is that you may use left over cold cuts like in Sauerkraut Stew.

BRETON STYLE WHITE BEANS:

1/2 kg dry white beans (I use Lima beans)
1 large white onion, chopped and fried in little bit of oil
1-2 cloves garlic
3 tsp. tomato paste
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 large bay leafs
1 tsp. dry marjoram
1/2 tsp. red paprika
salt and pepper to taste
dash of each: All spices, nutmeg, cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp. flour (optional)

*Option No. 1
smoke bacon and Polish sausage, cut in small pieces and fried in oil
*Option No. 2
sliced hot dogs and any leftover cold cuts, ham, etc.

- Soak dry beans in cold water overnight or at least for 5-6 hours, drain and rinse
- Put beans in a large pot, add fresh water to cover them, bring to boil and cook for approximately 30 minutes on small heat, stirring time to time and adding little bit of water during vaporization
- Add meats, onion, garlic and spices and cook till the beans become tender
- You may thicken the beans with mixing together 2 Tbsp. of flour and little bit of water and add at the end to the pot, stirring and boiling for another few seconds
*Tomato paste, ketchup and salt should be added at the end because it would harden the beans during cooking. Also it is recommended to add marjoram just 3-5 minutes before turning the heat off.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Ok GLP lets teach those on foodstamps how to stretch a dollar & where they dont have to eat potted meat or beefaronis or ramen noodles.

^^^these foods have near no nutritional value and contribute to obesity.

for one - every supermarket must DATE their foods. shop in the store and note the DATE OF EXPIRATION. come back that day of expiration and those meats will be reduced by half or more.

shop at bread stores, where most of the bread is either 2/1.00 or 1.00 a loaf.



ill start off with a few - this will feed a family of 6. and for 2 nights.

remember - this isnt mcnastys where you can "supersize it"....the only thing that will supersize is your waist if you dont cut down on portions.

1.5 lbs ground chicken
one onion chopped.
^^cook til browned & onions tender. drain.
add 8 slices of cheese (or 1 can of campbells cheese soup)
low flame, simmer til cheese is melted.

pkg of wraps.
finely shredded lettus

spoon the meat/cheese into the wrap, add lettus,

makes a crap load. 2 maybe 3 nights worth.

Buffalo Popcorn

Ingredients:

8-10 cups popped popcorn (1/2 cup pop corn kernels if you're making it the old fashioned way like I did + a couple tablespoons of olive oil)
3 TBSP buffalo wing sauce
2 TBSP butter
salt to taste



Preheat oven to 325(F).
To make the popcorn the old fashioned way (via Simply Recipes), simply heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a 3-quart saucepan on medium high heat. Add a couple kernels to the pan & cover.

When the test kernels pop, add the rest of the popcorn kernels in an even layer. Cover, remove from heat and count 30 seconds. This method first heats the oil to the right temperature, then waiting 30 seconds brings all of the other kernels to a near-popping temperature so that when they are put back on the heat, they all pop at about the same time.

Return the pan to the heat. The popcorn should begin popping soon, and all at once. Once the popping starts in earnest, gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner. Try to keep the lid slightly ajar to let the steam from the popcorn release (the popcorn will be drier and crisper). Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat, remove the lid, and dump the popcorn immediately into a wide bowl.

Melt the butter and buffalo wing sauce together in the microwave, approximately 20 seconds.

Drizzle wing sauce mixture over popped corn and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt.

Pour coated popcorn onto 2 baking sheets.

Place baking sheets in preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until crisp, stirring half way through for even baking.

Remove from oven and allow to cool. Popcorn crisps as it cools.

Here is my receipt for warming and healthy soup. When I said warming I really meant it and you will know why when you eat the soup. Perfect if you are felling under the weather or have cold/flu but in this case you may consider replacing bacon with chicken broth or chicken cubes and puree the soup if you wish.

GARLIC SOUP:

10-15 garlic cloves, sliced few times long side
1 white onion, chopped
4-5 large potatoes, cut in small squares
1/3-1/2 cup sour cream
1 large bay leaf
dash of each: all spice, nutmeg and cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. dry marjoram
1 Tbsp. lemon juice or 1 tsp. vinegar
1 Tbsp. each: green parsley and dill, chopped (optional)
1 Tbsp. oil for frying
smoke bacon, cut in small pieces

- Fry lightly bacon together with onion, remove to pot with boiling water, add garlic, bay leaf, salt/pepper/all spice/nutmeg/cayenne pepper and boil for approximately 1 hour
- Add potatoes with marjoram and boil 5-8 minutes longer till potatoes are tender, turn the heat off
- In a small bowl mix sour cream adding slowly little bit of soup, this way sour cream will not go bad
- Pour sour cream/soup mixture to the pot with soup stirring it together
- Add lemon juice and parsley with dill

10-15 cloves of garlic would not even keep our Dr. Acula away, so unless those cloves are very large, I would suggest 20 cloves! That's what I do, but I didn't want to scare people in here...

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
My two favorite receipts for tomato sauces with meat. I like to use “Catelli Onion and Garlic” jars and just add 1 dash of dry basil per jar while cooking, but Ragu jars are fine too and you can buy them and spaghetti packages on sale for $1.00 each. For “Ragu with Garlic” add 1 dash of dry basil/jar and for “Ragu with Basil” add 1 chopped clove of garlic/jar. Green pepper goes very well with tomatoes and adds nice flavor. I use deep pot for cooking tomato sauces to avoid “tomato mess” in the kitchen.

TOMATO SAUCE WITH MEATBALLS:

2 jars Ragu sauce (garlic or basil)
3/4 jar water
1 Ib ground beef or chicken
1 large green pepper, cut in small pieces
1 egg
3 Tbsp. bread crumbs
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
dash or two of cayenne pepper

- Pour tomatoes sauce and water into deep pot and bring to a boil, reduce heat to very low
- In a bowl mix ground meat with salt, pepper, egg and bread crumbs. Form medium size balls and add slowly to pot one at time
- After 1,5 hour of simmering add green peppers
- At the end add Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper

*IMPORTANT: The sauce should NOT boil only MINIMALLY simmer in opened pot for approximately 3 hours being stirred delicately (to not break meat balls) time to time. It will change its red bright colour to light brown and loses acidity – That’s the secret to this sauce nice taste! You may add little more water during simmering to not burn the sauce but all the added water should evaporate till the end of cooking.
*If you have more time, you may lightly brown/fry meat balls first with little bit of oil in frying pan before adding it to the pot with tomatoes. They will be even more tender this way.
*If you wish then besides meat balls, 20-30 minutes after simmering the sauce, you may additionally add package of “Johnsonville” regular or cheddar sausages sliced first in 2 cm pieces. If you do it, you should use 3 jars of Ragu sauce. This sauce freezes well.
*Serve with pasta or spaghetti. You may add cooked spaghetti to the pot with the sauce and mix everything together, but then, do not freeze it.

2 jars Ragu $2.00
ground meat $4.00
spaghetti $1.00
other $2.00
____________________
TOTAL $9.00

2 days dinner for family of 4-5 = 1 dollar meal per person!


HOME MADE TOMATO SAUCE:

2 cans peeled tomatoes
1 can water
1 Ib ground beef
1 large white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 dash of each: dry thyme and nutmeg
3 dashes of each: dry oregano, basil and red pepper
salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. sugar (added at the very end)
2-3 Tbsp. oil for frying meat

- In a frying pan, fry lightly onion with oil, add ground beef and fry together till the meat loses it’s red colour separating “lumps” with spoon
- Remove meat with onions to a large pot, add tomatoes, water, garlic and spices
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on very law heat till the added water evaporate, approximately 1-1,5 hour, add sugar

*I use this sauce for baking lasagna, cannelloni and rigatoni but you may also eat it with whit spaghetti, pasta and penne.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
I like cabbage rolls but there is lots of work with doing them, especially with separating all those cabbage leafs, simmering them first and then stuffing/folding, so I “developed” my own receipt and call it “lazy”, LOL. Different look but the same taste and you have there full dinner with cabbage/tomatoes/carrots for vegetable, meat for proteins and rice for carbs. if you are on really very tight budget, you can replace meatballs with package of hot dogs sliced in 1 inch pieces and don’t add optional ingredients. And if you are vegetarian, then you can replace meat with sliced mushrooms or just cook the cabbage this way on its own. Ok, here goes another easy and cheap meal...

LAZY CABBAGE ROLLS:

1 head white cabbage, chopped
1 white onion, chopped and fried in oil
1 carrot, cut in small pieces (optional)
1 tomato (optional)
1-2 tsp. tomato paste
4-5 Tbsp. white dry rice
1 Ib ground pork or chicken
1 egg
3 Tbsp. bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
dash of each: Allspice, Nutmeg and Paprika (dry red pepper)
2 Tbsp. sour cream (optional)
2 Tbsp. fresh dill, chopped (optional)
2 Tbsp. green parsley, chopped (optional)

- Mix ground meat with egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Form small meat balls and put aside
- Place tomato in a bowl and cover with boiling water, after 10 minutes drain the water and peel the skin off, cut tomato in medium pieces
- Place cabbage in a large pot, add 2 cups of water, carrots, fried onion, bay leaf, allspice, nutmeg, paprika, black pepper and bring to boil, reduce heat
- Add meat balls one at time and cook everything together for 20 minutes on low heat
- Add tomatoes and rice, cook for another approximately 15-20 minutes
- Add tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, salt to taste and cook for another 5 minutes
- Turn the heat off and add sour cream, dill and parsley to the pot, mix everything together

*If you want to be more “adventurous” you may additionally fry 4-5 slices of smoke bacon cut in small pieces and add at the beginning to the pot for even better taste
*The rice will thicken the cabbage but if you wish, you may additionally thicken it with home made thickener adding it at the very end to still simmering cabbage
*Eat “lazy cabbage rolls” with mash potatoes or with bread

HOMEMADE THICKENER:

4-5 Tbsp. oil
4-5 tsp. flour
*No water

- In small frying pan heat oil and add flour. Mix well and fry till it becomes golden in colour. The mixture should be very dense. If it’s not, add more flour. Do not add water to it because if you do and then add this thickener to the soup, your soup may have dumplings.
- Add very hot thickener at the end to still boiling soups or another dishes, stir and boil for few seconds more. It works all the time perfectly, no dumplings!
- If you have to thicken very large pot of soup then, of course, you need to make thickener with more oil and flour.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Very simply recession-proof dish : cabbage soup

Cut white cabbage in small pieces or very thin strips.
Put in kettle with a bit of water, some sea salt. Add some olive oil. Lid on kettle.

Heat to boiling temperature, then lower flame to minimum necessary for keeping the cooking going.

Ready after about 20-30 min, or depending on how you like your cabbage. Stir in some flour a minute before finishing, also spice you like. Add water as needed to make a good soup, add soy sauce (natural tamari) after cooking, in bowl or plate while still hot.

Very nourishing, very healthy. Feels good in stomach.

Cabbage is particularly good for stomach ulcers.

Very simple recipe, prepare large quantity and fill in glass pots. Put some oil on top to preserve against mould, if necessary.
