“Baked potato with butter and shredded cheese”
“Instant ramen…it’s too good.”
“Grilled cheese sandwich”
“Rice n beans”
“Jack-in-the-box tacos. Two for a Dollar! I love them, send help”
“Potatoes. Cheap, tasty and filling.”
“Totino’s party pizza (on sale for $1.25)
Some things will never change, I can afford all the groceries I need, but there are certain things I only buy when they are on sale.”
“Brown beans, cornbread, collards, and fried ham. Still pretty cheap ingredients in the store, and we ate it a lot when I was young, because poor.
I still love all those, great mix of flavors and textures. Going to make some this weekend!”
“PB and J. Hasn’t failed me yet.”
I told my mother-in-law that it’s my favorite meal my wife makes.
She asked my wife for the recipe. “…. one can manwhich, one pound browned ground beef.”
“I still only get water when at a restaurant. My parents never wanted to spend the money on sodas. Now I have the money, but I just don’t like soda that much, plus water is healthier.”
“Beans on toast and if I’m feeling posh maybe il put an egg on top”
“Saltine crackers with peanut butter as an easy delicious snack”
I’m also cheap/frugal so I still buy the cheap stuff as it tastes just as good imo
I buy great value noodles and great value sauce from Walmart. A pot of spaghetti costs $2 to make and is still one of my favorite meals to eat.
Although now I usually buy garlic knots or that garlic Texas toast to go with it”
“Kraft Mac and cheese”
“cinnamon sugar with butter on toast”
“Fried bologna sandwiches”
True. A lot of expensive food like a caviar I had was seriously overrated. And I love simple ramen or whatever.
But knowing how to make a meal like in a expensive restaurant is good too.
If I really work an hour on an elaborate meal it could definitely be called "Rich" and definitely worth it.
Whoever posted this must not know good taste at all
The "poor" part is not about taste... it's about cost of ingredients.
