Jews. No, seriously. The big metro markets for hot dogs (like NYC and Chicago) have big Jewish populations so pork hot dogs would be bad from a marketing standpoint.

I've tried, so far, a single brand of all-beef hot dog that I've liked: A&P's storebrand.

Better to buy fresh when on some ridiculous offer then wash, blanch, dry and freeze yourself. Seems labour intensive, but it's actually not all that bad.
Most recently (that is, last year), I got a bunch of broccoli greens, 6lbs of the stuff, for $5. All in perfectly good condition. Usually, that'd cost at least $9 but usually closer to $12.

I buy fresh bell peppers, split and deseed them, then freeze the sections. The only veg I buy already frozen are peas, kernel corn and pearl onions. And the pearl onions only when on sale because fresh pearl onions are usually cheaper and require no preparation beyond peeling to freeze.

I routinely, however, buy frozen cherries because fuck pitting them myself. Cherry ice cream all day, mofo.

You do know that when it comes to cereal and other processed foods (toaster pastries come to mind) the quality is indistinguishable between the big name brands and generic brands, right?
That's why you're better off making your own cereal.

Ingenuity in the kitchen used to come from the poor, back when, well, everyone except royalty and the gentry were poor.

Your wealth was much more dictated by the circumstances of your birth than by your skills and ingenuity as an individual, hence you had smarter poor people who learned how to do things to make their lives seem less impoverished.

Now, it's mostly people who consistently make dumb financial/life decisions who end up being poor. Sure, there's a certain amount of poorness due to birth circumstances even today, but it's far more likely that you're just dumb and lazy.

And to expand on that "buy fresh and freeze it yourself" advice, on my way home from work, I stopped in at a local grocer and found a few great deals: Chinese aubergines/eggplants, bitter gourds/frogmelons, shallots and kondfal/purple sweet yam, all sold in 3lb bags for 99¢ each.

I processed the melons and aubergines for freezing and shoved them in the freezer a little earlier and will do the same for the shallots tomorrow. Gonna make the yams into yam jam.

Also, for all the people mistaking "white trash" for "poor," I grew up part of my childhood in America (currently live in US again now, all alone though) and my best friend back then came from a family where the father was a doctor and mother a college professor. They certainly weren't poor, but they ate white trash food exclusively. The kitchen was spotless and beautiful 24/7 because all they ate were things like >>6697055, >>6697146, >>6696928, >>6696963, >>6696994, >>6699924 and >>6699933, just brand name.
Seriously no vegetables that weren't canned or frozen. None. No fresh meats I can recall, either. Lots of macaroni and cheese, frozen pizzas, canned pastas, ready meals, "Lean Cuisines" and that sort of junk. He came over my house once to watch some movie or other on VHS (yeah: THAT long ago) and marveled that you could pop popcorn on the hob/stovetop because all he's ever seen was microwavable and the stuff at the movies.

Despite their income, they ate like white trash.

Breakfast cereal kicks ass. It's a good way to top up at the end of the day if you are missing a few calories. It has more vitamins and shit than broccoli, and it's comforting. I feel like a kid again with every bowl of fruity pebbles, captain crunch, and lucky charms.

I've talked to people about thin before. I think they like that it's light in flavor and not very filling. I'm all about craft beers and shit but sometimes a nice Pabst or bud 55 is nice. You don't drink a double ipa or Russian imperial stout when you cut the grass.

Even if you make only $20/hr you can not be poor. Poor people are bad and stupid for choosing to be poor. Spend less than you make, that's the one step guide to stopping being poor and getting rich slowly. It's worked pretty great for me and literally every other person to try it.

This. My family made over 400k yearly but we lived exclusively off lean cuisines because no one bothered to cook.

>> No.6703155

I thought they ate like shit because it was convenient. Nope. They couldn't cook for balls. No one in his family. Not his grandmothers, either, so of course his mum and dad never picked up the skill (so neither did he and his sister).

Once, when I was 15 or so and said friend was 14 or 13 (he's a year and a month younger than me and this was after my birthday), his parents left the house to him and his sister for a couple weeks in the summer while they traveled abroad, no doubt fulfilling the stereotype of the Ugly American.
His parents stocked the chest freezer in the pantry room with enough ready meals for about a month even though they planned to be away for only twenty days. Well, something happened and I don't remember exactly what, but the result was that the freezer failed a few days after the parents left and everything went off and had to be thrown away. My friend and his sister were left with "only two hundred dollars" (only, they said; this was in the 90s, mind you) for takeaways. deliveries and stuff like that.
>What do we do?! We can't stock the freezer again because it's broken!! And the kitchen freezer is packed with ice cream!!!! Oh woe is us!
Chill out, fam, I gots dis.
He and I and his sister packed into his sister's car and drove to the supermarket where I bought, using their money, some ingredients (the entirety of the kitchen, the fridge, freezer and cabinets, had literally /nothing/ to cook with) and a roasting pan (literally nothing, like I said). I roasted a chicken with potatoes, made some jus to go with it, baked a loaf of soda bread and sautéed a bunch of spinach with garlic in olive oil and cooked up some carrots with butter and caraway, enough food for at least twelve portions (less the bread, which I only baked enough of for four portions).
If I wasn't a ginormous cocklover, his sister would have hopped my dick that night, she seemed so grateful. But I'm as gay as daffodil, so all I got was praise and thanks.

Friends with a 1st Gen Mexican in Oklahoma. The only "white trash" food I can think of him and his family eating are Takis and this Valentino sauce or whatever. Everything else seems either standard mixed American cuisine alongside homemade traditional Mexican recipes. But, this is just one family, so who knows.
