The FRUGAL COOK's RECIPE COLLECTION. THE POORHOUSE GOURMET.
by ANITA SANDS HERNANDEZ
I made this feast myself. Grew pumpkins for the pies which ended up costing 1$ each cuz I used milk custard, (cream is way too damn costly). Turkey was 13$ at chain super market with a coupon, (or if you buy more than 25$ worth of groceries that day.) Potatoes came from my own yard. Salad too. Ham was 88c a lb. (sale special). I made my own mustard as I grow the stuff. Colombian Coffee coupon worked and I spent 2$ on java as I only used a quarter can for ten people. Champagne is like paying good money to drink bad piss so I got good two liter Sierra which tastes way better. Or there's Chardonnay and Riesling at Trader Joes, 5$ a bottle, two bottles. No fun driving home in the rain hammered. So the coffee wasn't DECAF! My friends all have ambien.
Winter holidays have their dangers. HIGH COST and WINTERY, ICY roads. Insomnia, Blizzards always marked SURVIVAL times for our forefathers, ergo civilization has always tried to convince everybody there's massive comfort, joy and abundance at winter solstice. It's what we need to believe on the shortest coldest days of the year. We've been chilly and frightened for a few months already, so GIVE A wildly upbeat, sumptuous XMAS PARTY. GIVE FLAMBOYANTLY ABUNDANT GIFTS, make your own Christmas cards, with photos of the holiday decorations around the house and best of all, make your own fruit cake for gifts; serve the traditional foods made sumptuously by your own hands at home. Then you gotta figure out a way to make a party in JANUARY, when we're really fretting and survival is jeopardized, another of course Feb has Presidents' day -- Not much of a celebration. More of a gathering to figure out how we can do a COMMUNAL GUERILLA CAPITALISM VENTURE. Give swap meets 2x a year.
And then Valentines of course. A first meeting for singles would be a good party! March has St. Paddies. liquor the singles again up for that first meet. Folks are starving, land is still frozen. But everybody has a keg of Irish Whiskey for St. Paddies so DO NOT FORGET MARCH! WHISKEY FLAVORED ICE CREAM is what I'd do or Whiskey bread pudding on fire. Not drinking hard liquor.
The thing is to find a celebration once a month. CINCO DE MAYO is Tamale night. A FULL MOON need celebrating from time to time. Harvest Festival in SEPTEMBER. Or a birthday. How many birthdays a year does your family have? Check out the PARTY GIVER'S INDEX PAGE. Celebrating every so often heightens the fun, makes for a special unique mood and creates family togetherness. So don't tell them what or why you're doing it, just DO IT.
Take the freebie lessons on this page and you will SAVE a few hundred bucks on any party or feast. Give gifts the FRUGAL CHURCH MOUSE WAY < (CLICK ON THAT WEBSITE..) and take yourself to Acapulco in JANUARY with the savings! So. On to the recipes!

Ferinstance, for a kill omelet, maybe your trick is to fry your hashed browns first with onions, jalapenos, tumeric, cilantro. You set that aside, do the eggs, then throw the taters in the middle! That idea ROCKS. Open a MOBILE FAST FOOD TRUCK doing that Ethnic Street food, maybe MEXICAN HUARACHES or NOTHING BUT EGGS, Later do a fast food chain that does omelets in 31 flavors. Bavarian (ham). Chinese, (bean sprouts and pork,) and so on. Italian, parmesan, tomatoes, bell peppers. And so on. (BTW, send me your ideas for ethnic omelets, I post them with your name on 'em)
STREET FOOD: The most popular regional dishes are served in marketplaces as ethnic street food. To find some new recipes, Google "STREET FOOD" a plus + sign and throw in a country, Thailand, Burma, India, PERU or China as a co-search term.

Dear Anita Sands. THANKS for the ADVICE. I loved the FOOD INDEX and I would love to own the "WHAT IS THE COUNTRY HEADED INTO" FUTURE ARCHIVE and the SURVIVAL OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION INDEX page, those two. Oh and the FRUGAL LIFESTYLE seminar and webpage. I understand that each is a large COLLECTION of seminars featuring dozens of separate classrooms or articles. And I understand you have seminars on dozens of other subjects so...for free, please send me a list of the themes. I want a few trainings. HOW TO MAKE a COTTAGE INDUSTRY sounds good, and that has hundreds of articles, right? The GUERILLA CAPITALISM ARCHIVE, the LUCK IN LOVE/ HOW TO MARRY VERRRRY WELL ARCHIVE sounds good. 150 files in that one, right? And the hilarious JERRY'S REFRIGERATOR the CONSPIRACY THEORY WEBSITE with TIPS ON HOME SECURITY, FENDING OFF FUZZ is something I definitely want. THE HOLISTIC PREVENTION ARCHIVE, which is HOW TO HEAL and/or PREVENT ANY body CONDITION... I hear it's very useful and that I'll never need another doctor or HMO. SEND THESE SEMINARS TO ME. AND THE HOLISTIC PET , NEVER NEED A VET website. Want that one. ASTROLOGY AT EARTHLINK DOT NET is you. GOT IT!

She writes (or finds) 'telling' articles, posts them online at her website then sends the URL out to her TWITTER friends, her FACEBOOK readers and to her extensive EMAIL lists, -- to people whom she's noted are thinkers, sentient futurists, concerned citizens, do-ers and who are likely to pass the information on.
