    Default I'm fcking broke recipes

    so what are some good recipes for when you have zero dollars to spend?

    I made one up this morning I didn't know how it would turn out but better than i expected. of course i already had the olive oil and chick peas and ramen and eggs.

    cook ramen noodles according to the package drain put a small amount of olive oil in the pan and turn the heat to low,add these add the noodles, spice packet, and a beaten egg stir and fry. the spices from the chick peas actually compliment the flavor packet from the ramen. I don't really like ramen.

    i suppose you can make your own spiced chick peas as well

    Boil rice. When it's done, turn the heat down and throw in a can of beans (any kind will do), one chopped onion, a chunk of butter or margarine, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir it up and put the lid on, and leave it alone until the onion is cooked (ten or twenty minutes). I also like to add hot peppers and ginger to this mix, but they're not necessary. What you've got at the end will fill your belly and taste good for pennies per serving.

    That's pretty much exactly what I was going to say!

    The first year my wife and I were married, we found ourselves in the first week of January with cupboards bare and checking account empty. There were paychecks due on Friday, but this was, like, Tuesday.

    We dug through the couch cushions and all through the car, under the seats, under the floormats, down in the console... when we were done we found we had just under two dollars in change. That was enough in those days to get us one loaf of the cheapo store-brand white bread, and one of the small jars of cheapo peanut butter. We lived for three days on peanut butter sandwiches and water.

    I think we had a half a jar of jelly in the fridge, so I had some J with my PB. Mrs. Oberon doesn't like jelly on her peanut butter sandwiches, so she ate hers dry.

    You can do wonders with a can of tuna, a bag of pasta, and frozen peas. Add a little pasta sauce, or mayo ...

    You might get an adventurous friend or two together, go to the local grocery store, and do some dumpster diving.

    Bread + Butter/Margarine + Cheese = Grilled Cheese Sammich



    Pot of Boiling Water + Butter/Margarine + Milk + KD Box = Kraft Dinner!



    Wraps are also pretty cheap, just flatbread and whatever insides you want: Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, etc.

    here are 10 Foolproof ways to stay alive when the going gets tough.

    1) dumpster diving
    2) deal cocaine to make bank
    3) fast and build spiritual awareness
    4) pasta and bread
    5) find a boyfriend who you can mooch off of
    6) steal money from your mom's purse
    7) sell yourself for money down at the corner
    8) go huntin'. get yo self a gun or a knife and find yo self some game.
    9) go fishing.
    10) become a begger.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    When I'm broke... I find Campbell's Cream of __________ soups become my best friend... I've made so many casseroles by throwing a can of one of those soups, some canned veggies, rice or pasta, and some meat into a casserole dish and baking it.

    If I'm really broke I'll get the Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup, pasta noodles, and ground beef and mix it together and bake it... Makes a pretty decent amount of casserole that lasts for a couple of days.
