    We had chili, made on the woodstove. Being laid off is really tough but thankfully many have been helped with the extended government help. Still many losing homes and that is really sad. I hope things pick up for you soon Dave.

    Big pot of brown rice, canned corn, canned chilli beans, and spiced tomatoes/sauce. Maybe $0.25/serving. Very good.

    Southern style pork chops (very inexpensive - 1.49lb) lightly brown w/ a little olive oil in the cast iron dutch oven, not too hot or too long - then pile on top onions, carrots, and potatoes- if small they can be done whole but usually I have medium sized and slice the potato and onion in half. Cook at ~300 for a couple hours, covered - meat will be fall off the bone tender. Cheap, delicious, easy - whats not to like!!

    in one of your previous posts, you were amazed at the price that people charge for their services...i guess it was more of what people pay for services. i also am in constant awe of the cost i see members from this site incurring. but, ya gotta do what ya gotta do...you know? when in rome.....

    jebatty, i think i'll try the brown rice concoction.

    now...has anyone on this site ever heard of a "PASTY"? no it's not something an exotic dancer wears!!! just a local favorite

    If you haven't heard of a pasty, then you've never been to northern MI! But I still don't like them.

    Yup. I remember having them in SW Wisconsin some yrs back while on holiday.Found in a few other US spots as well.The immigrant lead & zinc miners from Cornwall,England & Wales who settled there brought the recipes over with them.Damn good if you ask me.Basically a turnover/pastry- but instead of fruit its got beef,sometimes onion,cabbage,or turnips with a bit o' gravy inside.One of these days I'll attempt to try my luck at making them,does anyone know if ready to bake pie crusts would work?
