    Sounds like food porn.

I don't skimp on the food quality, so it's not that I'm using dog meat. Even with buying expensive meats and or vegetables I'm amazed at how cost effective it is to cook.
    Absolutely.

    This weekend I prepped a week's worth of meals for 4 in case we lost power. 3 roasts and a huge casserole for about $60, and I wasn't even trying to save money.

    The number of poor people with no stove, no oven, no outlets, no water, etc., is vanishingly small compared to a population of 330 million.

    No matter what argument is put forth, there will be some tiny number of outliers who can't do whatever it is due to disability, insanity, personality, or whatever.

    That's no way to run a railroad. Sure, those people need some help but their existence doesn't mean other people are off the hook.

    Ordinary people can eat well and frugally at home.

    Tonight for dinner 3 of us had a dozen and a half crabs, corn on the cob and tomatoes. Total cost...$4.75 or $1.58 a piece (not counting the cost of the butter we put on the corn). A meal like that at a restaurant around here would have been about $25 each.

    Did you catch the crabs yourself?

    Yes. And the bait was fish that was caught...I did not add in the cost of the worms used to catch the bait fish.

    Both Econ and 4-H did all this extensively. You couldn't raise a chick or a rabbit without knowing precisely what it cost in sale price versus feed.

    I can and do buy expensive foods but I can and have done things with pedestrian ingredients and not much an of eye to the 'Cooking Channel' that are amazing. I have no doubt I could revert to my poor ways and still eat like a queen.

    But stops at Popeye's or the Walmart freezer would not be on my list.

    Your best crab bait is rotten chicken necks. You can get'em free from the butcher, who's just going to throw them out otherwise. Put them in a tree (to keep the wildlife from stealing them in the hot sun until they're good and funky-smelling, then tie twine to'em and drop them over the side of your dock. You'll be scooping up jimmy blues in no time.

    My friends had been using the tried and true chicken neck method. But they found the fish in the trap bait has worked beautifully.

    Oh, I'm sure. Crabs will eat just about anything. And if you go all fancy and use traps, well, once they're in, they're caught. The thing about chicken necks is, is you're just using bait on a string, they'll support the weight of a nice big crab when you pull it up to net. "Net" being a verb, in this case.
