Recession Recipes

We're not afraid of the "R-Word!" During the great depression, some people starved to death, and we don't want history to repeat itself. Besides, people celebrate things like Thanksgiving so why not celebrate the recession every day!?!?!?! It'll make it fun! So fix yourself a stiff drink and read on...

Lettuce Soup - Remember iceberg lettuce? That cheap stuff that you stopped eating during the economic boom because you ate those fancy baby greens instead? Iceberg lettuce is damn cheap, so you better swallow your pride and this soup will make it go down easier

1 head of iceberg lettuce
5 sticks of celery
1 cup of flat leaf parsley
1 carrot
5 black peppercorns
dash of salt
4 pansies you steal from your neighbor's flower garden

Remove the stem from the lettuce and roughly chop the leaves. Fill a big pot about three quarters of the way full with water and the dash of salt, and bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat to the absolute lowest setting and put in all the ingredients except the pansies. Let the vegetables seep for about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve. Use the pansies as garnish floating in the soup bowls.

Serves 2.

BBQ Cheapskate Steak - No more Filet Mignon for you! You're punished for your new economy mob mentality. Just buy whatever cut of steak is on sale. We're talking low-grade mystery meat here. Don't worry, the marinade will help tenderize it.

2 steaks which were on sale
generic cola because you can't afford name brand stuff
as many peeled cloves of garlic as you can afford

Take your steak and put it in a non-metallic bowl. Cover with generic cola and throw in the garlic, salt, and pepper. Let marinate for 4-5 hours. For especially crappy cuts of meat, you better let it soak for 10 hours.

BBQ for about 5-7 minutes per side. When you see beads of reddish moisture coming out, your steak is probably done.

Sigh…Filet Mignon is a luxury of the recent past…

Serves 2.

This was totally taken from the following site www dot eatdangerously dot com/recessionrecipes, the rest of the recipes are worth the read too... including gruel... LOVE IT..LOL
