Just out of morbid curiousity, let's say for whatever reaqson, you were scheduled to be executed (for a crime of which you are innocent, naturally)

and were offered one last meal, what would it be?

 

For me:

 

Fettucine Alfredo, 16 ounce t-bone steak, iced tea to wash it down, and for dessert, Black Forest Cake, and a Cohiba cigar.

Hmm... I couldn't say.

My tastes change every so often.

Crab legs and oysters would have to be involved, for sure.

They tried eating on $25 a week

The $25 Challenge is over in Illinois, and we're sure the participants are thrilled about that. They agreed to spend no more than $25 on food for a week -- that's about $3.50 a day -- and blog about what they learned during the experience.

It was a real eye-opener for most. When you have so little money for food, you realize that "there is food all around you, all the time, but you can't eat it," wrote Frank Finnegan, who was planning yet another dinner of ham and beans. He added, "Forget nutrition. When shopping, the only thing that matters is price."

Interesting -- but I smell a hidden agenda.

the comments on the msn article are all tips-n-tricks for how to do it more efficiently without feeling like you're starving, and they really discuss some good advice, including one guy who got a fishing license and added a couple pounds of trout a week basically for free.

You wanna live inexpensively, you gotta think differently. Box cereals are a luxury. I buy them only on serious sale. More often I make cream of wheat (I hate oatmeal). Instant oatmeal, granola, granola bars - all expensive, relatively speaking. The one nice thing about Israel is that fresh veggies are dirt cheap. I bought enough fruits and veggies for us for like 2 weeks including guests for under $30 and I bought everything I wanted without looking at price.

Gorgonzola cheese.

Yum.

(No, I'm not posting a recipe or anything ... I just wanted to make all the foodies in here hungry. Ha ha.)

IGlet is totally into gorgonzola right now. Last night he boldly declared it his very favorite cheese in the whole world.

Cheese -mm...favourite is Grueyere. But Gouda as well as Emmethal, Edam and sometimes Provolone.

 

I can't understand Limburger cheese at all, though.

Funny how the Limburger article links to the Muenster article -- and if you go solely by the photos, the Limburger looks far more appetizing than the Muenster.

So tonight I decided I really wanted a bowl of chili, but I didn't have a lot of time, so I decided to risk forfeiting my stature as a foodie and try a packet of McCormick chili seasoning mix.

Surprisingly, it's pretty decent. Not "great" but definitely good enough to satisfy a chili craving. I opted for the "hot" chili seasoning and it's got a decent kick.

Of course, I did diverge from the directions a bit. :) I added chopped onions to the meat while cooking it, which just makes sense ... and instead of simmering it for 10 minutes on the stove, I went for about 20 minutes in a pressure cooker. Garnished with some shredded cheddar and accompanied by a cold beer, it got the job done.

Good thing I'm the only one home tonight because no one else in my family eats chili. (IGlet will eat a little bit, but he's not home, so it doesn't matter.)

Wouldn't Tabasco work as well for the 'kick'?

Well, yes, if I wanted it even hotter I could have added some hot sauce. Tabasco is reliable as a known quantity when you're eating at a restaurant but at home by poison of choice is Louisiana brand hot sauce.

I can sometimes find Limburger cheese here in WNC, usually at Lowe's Foods. The other stuff: handkase, is hard to find. Handkase is the stuff most folks think Limburger is, smelly.

I like the ortega taco seasoning mix.

I tried a different brand and it was icky.

I've used McCormicks for chili and it is good. You can't be expected to be a foodie all the time... sometimes you just gotta git it done.

we got a new crockpot- a new wave one with loads of gizmos and junk. First thing I made in it was lasagna with a recipe I've never tried. Actually, I've never made lasagna in a crockpot before but I'm tired of paying for lasagna and it's a real bitch to make. I'm trying to help Dan on WEdnesdays because that day is a real chore for him...

Anyway. The lasagna was burnt to a friggin' crisp according to the recipe. I have made pork roast with sauer kraut and that came out well.

This week... I dunno. Looking like chili...
