Breakfast: Rice Pudding
I realize that some people don't like rice pudding but it is very economical. There are no raisins included in this recipe so that should put some peoples taste buds at ease (and other angry).
Cost per person: $0.51
In a medium pot according to package directions cook:
I've been prepping, chopping, cooking, baking, stirring, pouring, and taking pictures of food all morning. Finally I have something to show for it!
If you don't know what the LBL challenge is check out my earlier post through this link: Live Below the Line (LBL). I hope you too decide to join in on this creative eye opening challenge.
Post. Scriptum. Is anyone besides me getting bored of referring to the LBL challenge as a challenge every sentence? I'd appreciate any suggestions you have as to how I can shake up the reference word I use! Just leave your suggestion in the comment suggestion below.
1 cup Rice
When your rice is completed, add:
4 cups Milk
Let cook for 45 minutes over medium low heat. Stirring frequently, in order to prevent a film from forming on the surface and also the rice from sticking to the bottom on the pot.
Serve hot or cold with:
6 Bananas (1 per person)
You may mash your banana and serve on top of your pudding (as I did), slice it up as a one banana fruit salad, or eating plain on the side. Just serve it the way you prefer!
Lunch: Chilli Fries
This was a pleasantly filling meal (my brother couldn't finished it because he was full).
Cost Per Person:
You will need:
2.5 lb. Potatoes
It is preferable to choose longest potatoes in the bunch. Now scrub the potatoes clean. Leave on the skins because this will add extra nutrition. You may cut your fries using either of the methods below.
The easiest way to cut it is to first cut the potato in half length wise so you have a long flat surface to work with, then cut it into thin even 1/4 inch slices the long way. Then cut the slices into thin 1/4 inch strips. So you end up with long thin slices of potato.
Slice in half, lengthways.
Place flat sides down on your cutting board. Cut again in half, lengthways. This would be for very large wedges. For slightly smaller, cut in thirds, lengthways, on a 60 degree angle, from the outside of the potato to the centre line where it hits the cutting board.
For even smaller, slice in half again after the second half cut.
Heat oven to 300f. Spread fries in a deep dish, in a single layer, with 1 cup of water. If Julienned bake for 60 minutes. If wedges cook for 60-90 minutes. Now microwave half the fries for 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining. Now broil at 500f nuked fries for 10-15 minutes (or until golden).
In The Mean Time: Chilli
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally:
4 cups Baked Beans
1/4 cup Chilli Powder
Serve chilli over portioned fries and enjoy. If you took my suggestion in my Grocery List post to by salt this is a great time to take advantage of that little flavour stimulator.
Dinner: Cream of Curry Soup
A different dish to take your taste buds on vacation.
Over medium low heat simmer for 45 minutes:
4 cups Milk
Saute for 3-5 minutes in 1 tsp shortening:
While your onions saute chop into 1/2 inch cubes:
225 g. Chicken
Add chicken to onions with 1/2 cup of water. To the milk add the chicken mix and:
3 tbsp Curry
Slowly bring to a boil (10-15 minutes). And now your ready to dish it up!
