Cheap Eatin comes in all forms. Me I cooked a chicken, sausage, tasso, shrimp gumbo with a side of potato salad.

Hey, even I remember 5 cent hamburgers (very basic, but still).


LOVE the canned Thanksgiving dinner! For next month there's this:

And it has a pop top lid, no can opener required!

I was poking about the pantry and found a small can of jellied cranberry sauce, Ocean Spray; think will have it with my pork steak tonight, it cuts the richness nicely and I love that stuff anyways!

If cranberry doesn't have the can rings then it's Greek to me.!!!

I had a sweet tooth and started digging through the cabinets. I found a box of Cafe du Monde's Beignet mix.

These things are so easy to make.

Maybe easy, but so good with a great cup of coffee, too. MMMMMmmmm.

Yes, I like canned smooth cranberry sauce and try to remember to keep some on hand, as it is good with many savory dishes. Good on a hot buttered biscuit, especially with a piece of ham in there.

Worth those look good, what are you using for the sauce to steam them with?

Does homemade breads fit into cheap eating?

I buddy from another forum finally started a youtube channel because he's always making different types of bread and we bug him for recipes. I think he's a natural and explains everything well.

Here's a muffin video, this seems too easy and I know it's better than what we buy.

Thanks,
I am using water to steam them with in my big pasta strainer basket cooker thing.
Sits about 2 inches off bottom.
The tamales were folded with the baby tuck method.
Roll fold ever end and roll, no ends flapping around and seals the bottom.
Just like you would a burrito but only one end.

Mmm, tamales.

That dinner in a can is a crack up.

Chicken hearts and gizzards with gravy and broccoli on a homemade biscuit.
With chili powder and black pepper on top.

Worth, the tamales look good. And post 4963 are some of my favorite ingredients. I would probably go with chicken livers instead of gizzards, but if you're cookin' I'll try it out.

Rajun, I've been noticing the Sonic sale too. I've been eating at Sonic since my earliest memories - but not here in the past few years. Their burgers have almost no taste locally. As a child - I liked the little plastic animals they would put on the drink cups.

Going back to the Chick Fil A posts - yeah, I could eat two or three real chicken sandwiches from there. That's not cheap eaten. I first heard about Chick Fil A back in the 1970s. There was one in the "New Mall" back in the 70s right beside H. Fish and Chips. I didn't eat at a Chick Fil A until the 2000s. I quickly learned that I had missed out for decades on a really good tasting chicken sandwich. There could be some MSG in the ingredients - I don't know? For anyone who hasn't tried a fried Chick Fil A chicken sandwich - it is worth trying.
