Lowcash Dinner Salad.
« on: October 01, 2016, 09:04:32 PM »
I've mentioned money woes recently. Things got really bad, and for a while I thought they were unfixable. I ended the month with nine dollars in the account. (I keep it at $500 for emergencies.)

Mom ended up with -$5.00, and bank fuckheads double dipped on etf fees. $35 a pop, so $70 for the "privilege" of just not denying transactions, which I have requested they do in the past. (They processed charges before deposits). They've lost class action lawsuits over this in the past, but I'm guessing it's one of their larger piggy banks, so they continue the practice.

Anyway, I'm back on top of the ball, but I wasn't shopping AT ALL today.

The recipe is simple, anyone with a can opener could make it.

1 can green beans
1 can gold corn
1 can peas
1 can carrots (I did not have carrots)
Red wine vinegar
1 TB butter/margarine.

Heat one of the veggies to melt the butter, or microwave it. Mix vegetables in large bowl, season to taste, vinegar to taste, chill for one hour.

It's disgustingly humid, so this dinner was refreshing and easy.

Needs chili but it sounds really easy and tasty.

Are fresh veggies not cheaper than tinned in the U.S?
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

That sounds creative and good as well as nourishing.  I was wondering if there are any food pantries in the area where you could pick up fresh produce and some staple items?  Bread, dried beans, canned food, and things like potatoes, onions, etc. might really help get you through these lean times.  Some charities don't even bother to require proof of income.
