My parents got half a cow as xmas bonus (stepdad worked at a grainery) and only had to pay processing. so for like 200 bucks we got 800+ lbs of beef.

really the only way they managed to feed all of us on next to nothing.

 

since there were 8 of us and we lived outside chicago, the only way to cook that many steaks was on the grill, and there was only a few choice weeks to cook on the grill before it became bad weather. so for about 2 months of every summer dinner was steak + tots, steak + salad, steak + canned veg, steak + fries, steak, steak, steak, spam and steak....etc.

and there was no "oh, i'll just eat a peanut butter sandwhich" type thing.

 

so I had to gag down pound after pound of steak. yeacchh....i'm the only poor white kid going "ohhh man....steak? again?" heheheee....

 

so to this day I think i've had probably 5 steaks in the last 15 years? maybe?

 

but I love me some a1! I eat it on baked potatoes....I eat it on mac and cheese....

put it on burgers, mix it half and half with ketchup for fries (or half and half with sour cream for tots and such)

 

I went to local butcher who advertizes freezer packs to ask him about getting something that was more slow cook beef. I want some patties, ground beef, roasts, pork chops and whole fryers, and a ton of stew meat.....and maybe a few steaks for when family visits cuz they like the novelty of grilling year round and I OWN a grill. lol.

 

I opened with "I'm getting a freezer" to which he started about the freezer packs and I interrupted "well...problem is I really don't care for steak...."

 

You'd have thought i said I enjoyed eating babies. hahahhaa.....it was funny :)

I was a latchkey kid and my favorite was wonder bread with Kraft singles slices, in the microwave so it got melty.  Yum.

We made this, but put almond slices in the skinny end of the pear and the cottage cheese at the other end and it's a bunny! lol

OMG!  Seriously!  I think the only thing that "saved" me was that many people in the family gardened so there was always a surplus of veggies gifted to us.  The thought of extremely overcooked green beans swimming in melted Velveeta will haunt me forever.  Otherwise it was Minute rice (and lots of it) and various bland meats, like plain ground beef.

 

I remember once my mom made hamburgers on a grill (I have no idea where this grill came from as we didn't have one) topped with lettuce and tomatoes, it was a taste sensation that sadly I didn't experience again for many, many more years. 

 

I was also a latchkey kid.  Bored + crappy food = gross snacks.  I remember nibbling on raw pasta.

My mom would make lime jello with carrots - I still love it to this day.  And I love eating canned peaches with cottage cheese.

 

Growing up we ate alot of hamburger helper. I won't touch it now that I'm older.  We would also eat sardines out of the can and smoked chub. But as kids we loved them. 

When my Dad cooked it was always Stouffers lasagna and canned potatoes. I hate canned potatoes but he still buys them even now at 54.

We played 'build a potato" when I was a kid.  We had a potato patch in the backyard and a shovel that lived by the back door.  My brother and I would grab the shovel, dig a couple of potatoes for dinner and my mom would bake them.  Smother those in a  big slice of government cheese and that was dinner many nights a week.  

 

I did this with my kids the other night (no government cheese though, I think that welfare program ended years and years ago) and they loved it!  

 

I still gag a bit at the thought of that awful orange, weird cheese stuff.  

 

Oh!  And I remember my grandmother's 'salad' was half a head of iceberg lettuce with a knife stuck in it.  You were supposed to slice off a wedge of lettuce and drizzle it with blue cheese dressing.  I still go crazy for blue cheese.

"RONNIE WAX"!  That's what it was called by some.  We had cheap, store-brand cheddar cheese.  American cheese slices and Velveeta were expensive by comparison.

I like raw pasta. I used to put handfuls of elbow macaroni in my pockets, and take it with me when I went out with friends. I still tend to nibble on it when I'm making homemade mac and cheese...

This isn't that weird. My mom's beef stroganoff recipe is simply pouring a package of prepared brown gravy over egg noodles. I like it and I occassionally make it for my kids when I'm out of ideas for dinner. I also gaged on my fair share of orange jello with carrots. Yuck!

I remember eating fried bologna sandwiches until poofed up a bit, then melted cheese with potato chips between white bread. Probably not nutritous but sometimes I still crave that.

I just remembered - sardine sandwiches, on white bread, with yellow mustard. Gross, but I crave it about once every 5 years.

 

Same with bologna, American cheese, white bread, mayo,  and yellow mustard. I think of it once every 5 years or so, but never have it, because it isn't at all cheap if you have to buy all the ingredients for just one sandwich! We would throw out the rest of the bread, bologna, cheese and even the mustard, because no one around here would ever eat those things.

 

YoungSon eats dry ramen noodles, then eats the weird little packet of chemicals separately. Licks his finger, dips it in... I can't watch.

the beef ramen is actually too spicey for me. I'm sensitive to it and my whole mouth goes numb, which stinks because I like spicey food!

 

I do have a habit of buying bullion cubes and sitting and nibbling away at one. Started back in HS. I do like me some salt!

OMG! I totally forgot about eating boullion cubes!  And I liked to lick out the tomato paste can (had to be paste, not sauce)  And the kids only got Hi-C to drink as our "juice"... parents got real orange juice but it was too expensive for the kids.

oh god....do they even make that stuff anymore?

 

I remember I got a can of hawian punch a couple years ago...must have been a free soda deal, and I about gagged.

my uncle had a huge gameroom basement (in his single days) and my great grandma's old fridge. a 1950s round top, large metal latch deal. he kept HP in there for whatever reason? I assumed us, but we didn't visit ALL that often....

but I remember it being a huge treat to have HP sitting in the basement watching movies.

 

Makes me shudder to think. that stuff is dreadful! lol.

My husband tells stories of ketchup packet soup (just add it to hot water and mix).  

 

One of my favorite frugal foods growing up was fried noodles -  Leftover spaghetti noodles pan fried with butter and topped with parmesan.  Mmmm.

We used to have Ramen with frozen spinach and eggs cooked into the soup.  A lot.  We would also have "Texas Goulash" which was Franco American Spaghetti, canned Kidney beans, and ground beef.  American cheese and yellow mustard sandwiches.

She also fed us Frankenberries and Count Chocula for breakfast, and if we ate lunch, it was probably KFC or something similar. She provided an endless stream of cookies, candy and ice cream bars. Blech.

 

The only real hangover I have from that is that I sometimes really crave Minute Rice. I like real rice. I really love brown rice, and I adore the blends, with multiple kinds in them (don't often buy them, as they're pricey). Minute Rice really isn't very good...but sometimes, it's just what I want.

 

That. All of that. Sounds really, really good right now. redface.gif

Thats weird, because I don't think they ought to have any milk in them, but maybe there is some milk powder in them?

You should be able to find straight up rice noodles at even the reg grocery store now, but you'll have better luck if you have any asian grocery stores around. There is a huge one by me and it's crazy!

 

I buy a stir fry sauce (black label, can't recall exact brand but not the typical lachoy/panda express type) at the reg grocery store that I REALLY like, I use it on ramen noodles in lieu of the packet.

While I will totally eat bullion cubes, the ramen packet flavor (I only buy beef) is generally just salty, lacking in beef flavor, and weird too spicy component for me?

 

But you should be able to improve upon and mock ramen style easily enough!

I bolded the above. Reminds me of what my German grandmother used to make for us kids for breakfast sometimes. She'd heat chocolate milk on the stove then pour it over white bread that we had torn into bite size pieces into our bowls. We loved that! A dinner she made sometimes was creamed spinach, fried eggs and boiled potatoes. Looked disgusting together on the plate but unbelievably, was not bad to my 9 year old taste buds!

 

My mother made a dish that involved heating together on the stove a can of tomato sauce, can of green beans drained and chopped spam. Pour that concoction over cooked white rice. I was always leary of it before I sat down to eat but it was good when I was really hungry.

Hamberger peas and potatoes... blech! To this day, I can't stand peas or canned veggies. And I'm not fond of potatoes either.
