Food Stamp Diet: Post #9 

My last day before I'm allowed to buy more groceries.

Breakfast: Polenta (or cornmeal mush) with cheese.
Lunch: Leftover lentil stew and tomato couscous.
Dinner: Barbecued baked beans, brown rice with cheddar, pickles that have been in the fridge forever.

The baked beans came out pretty well. I made the barbecue sauce out of most of a large can of tomato sauce (which I bought for the project). I'd used a little bit in the tomato and cheese couscous the other day. I mixed that with molasses, a little Worcestershire, a bit of cayenne pepper and some apple cider vinegar. Not bad!

I'll be posting about the project at least a few more times. I'm going to do a summation and also respond to one of the angry letters I received and which we ran in this week's paper.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

Strawberry season is here. How do you eat summer's early red fruit?

  • I eat them plain — by the quart.
  • Shortcake!
  • In cocktails, spritzers and other beverages.
  • Strawberry jam! Then I can enjoy them all year.
  • Pies, tarts, cakes ... I like to bake with strawberries.
