Easy - steamed vegetables.

Broccoli, carrots, onions, potatoes (or whatever vegs. you like).

The only strenuous part is peeling the potatoes, if you want.

Wash vegs. and put them on top part of a steamer on stove. Salt and pepper if you want and add butter to finished product.

This can make a meal or two around this house.

Is that good?

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Not so much a recipe as a tip....if you don't fish, consider buying a sport fishing neighbor a yearly license in exchange for fresh fish....it's a good investment for fresh fish...

I'm a avid fisherman and used fish to barter for everything from car repair to haircuts and even steaks....have you seen the price of fresh fish at the markets lately?.....I also keep my deep freeze stocked...use a vacuum sealer and the fish last a long time....

I went to a slow cooker (Crockpot) website and printed out their cookbook once and still have it. If you don't want to print it, just borrow some recipes from there.

Ingredients

1 1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
2 (12-ounce) cans root beer, divided
2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything.

Get dried beans - any kind you like - black beans, black eyed peas, navy beans, butter beans. The are cheap. Follow directions on bag. If you soak first, they will cook faster. Can season with some kind of meat, optional, or use some spices from your rack.

Make a big-arse pot of rice.

Will last for a long time, depending on your family size. Or, can freeze the leftovers in freezer bag for lazy night dinner.

Maybe add some sort of bread to fill those little tummies up.

So true.Just a plain ole egg sandwich or on a biscuit is so good.A couple strips of bacon or a slice of ham and its all you need..Loved deviled eggs too.


I know a lot of people eat ramen noodles..I have found if you add just a spoon full of meat pieces it seems so much more filling.
I fry hamburger or diced chicken,usually a lb at a time,drain it well,then put it in a freezer bag.It is so fast and easy just to get a small amount from the bag and add it in since its already cooked.Can use it for a lot of other things too as an add in..

Also I bake extra biscuits to freeze.Once baked you can put them in a freezer bag in a flat layer and take one out at a time when needed.Taste about he same as when they were baked.
Also saves energy by making enough for more than one meal at a time.

Homemade chicken pot pie:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1 or 2 chicken breasts of whatever chick you have. Cook until done. Shred it up.

3 or 4 medium potatoes, diced.
3 stalks of celery diced.
4 medium carrots sliced.
2 medium onions sliced and diced.
24 oz chicken broth (you can make this yourself by boiling chicken necks and backs, etc.) Just make it nice and rich for flavor instead of buying expensive broth in a can. (Add salt to taste for the homemade broth.
1/2 stick butter (optional but makes it richer).
1 can cream of celery, chick or mushroom soup.
1/3 cup of all purpose flour.

Put all of this in a large skillet and cook until veggies are done. Add flour LAST and cook for a few more minutes. If you have too much liquid, let it cook down until it is the thickness you want. Or add some more flour if you want to thicken more. (This is a kind of seat of the pants recipe and very forgiving, you can add more veggies if you desire.)

For the crust, make your own if you are industrious OR;

1 1/4 cup bisquick
3/4 cup milk
1 egg

Pour your filling into a large casserole dish, no bottom crust. Then mix up your bisquick mixture and pour over the top of your filling. Bake until bubbly and golden brown.

This makes a ton of food, will feed 6 people, at least. If you are not piggies, it'll feed 8.

I could post here every day. Freeze everything.

Essential item: freezer bags

The day you shop, cut your fruit and veg up into portionsand freeze. Rub a little olive oil on your veg to prevent freezer burn (nasty taste you get from frozen pizzas)

To prepare for dinners chop:
Bag of Onions
Bulb of Garlic
3-4 tins chopped tomatoes
Bag of potatoes
punnet of button mushrooms
Carrots
Any frozen veg
Thyme
Rosemary
Cajun Spices
Olive Oil
Curry spices

Take a giant spoonful of the veg (according to your liking) and add one tiny spoonful of spice to a freezer bag, label to your recipe and freeze. You can take a bag out each time, fry your meat, add a bag and boil some veg and pasta.
With meat, rice and pasta sheets, you have the ingredients for Curries, Spaghetti Bolognaise, Stew, Lasagne, Cajun Risotto, and Soups.

Add Tuna & breadcrumbs for a tuna bake.
(Put bread in smoother maker)

Add Eggs, Bacon & Breadcrumbs for Breakfast, French toast, Omelettes and meatballs.

Keep yourshopping list simple, freeze everything on the day of purchase and Google recipes on your favourite foods.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
I could post here every day. Freeze everything.

Essential item: freezer bags

The day you shop, cut your fruit and veg up into portionsand freeze. Rub a little olive oil on your veg to prevent freezer burn (nasty taste you get from frozen pizzas)

To prepare for dinners chop:
Bag of Onions
Bulb of Garlic
3-4 tins chopped tomatoes
Bag of potatoes
punnet of button mushrooms
Carrots
Any frozen veg
Thyme
Rosemary
Cajun Spices
Olive Oil
Curry spices

Premade dips are expensive as heck. Here's a great recipe. I HATE cottage cheese but with this recipe, you won't even know it's in there!

12 oz cottage cheese
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
2 cloves fresh garlic.

Blend until completely smooth, refrigerate until chilled.

Dip fresh veggies or chips into it and it's pure heaven I tell you. If you love garlic.

Low calorie too and you can use whatever cottage cheese you want.

Being a Celt, I'm not much of a cook - although I bake a mean potato - but one thing I recommend is the Incredible, Edible Egg. Baked, boiled, fried, scrambled, omelettes, over easy, with bacon or some veggie soy shit, broccoli, peppers, onions, garlic. There is NOTHING you can't do with an egg.
