In the Black neighborhoods, where food stamp amounts allotted no longer feeds the people, they must go to beg at churches for food.
The workers at the church get the best available food and the minions get what little is left, most of which they do not even like.
If you apply for food stamps now, they do not expedite help for you even if you are starving.
You get a small jar of peanut butter, with no bread or crackers to put it on, and two small boxes of corn chex to last a family of three up to potentially 2 weeks or more if help actually even comes at all.
You also get 2 pints or quarts of fake milk as well.
The local Kroger's shelves are becoming bare as we speak.
The fights over food are almost upon us.
The end is certainly near.
A usurper has killed this once free and vibrant country.
No one is hiring, many more companies plan to close their doors, such as Best Buy, Kmart, Sears and J.C. Penny to name a few.
I am so sorry to hear that, but I know that it is true. There are many more people living out on the fringe who want to work, but can't make a living wage. I think that single-parent homes have it the worst....it takes a lot more than peanut butter and fake milk to sustain people, especially children. I donate to a feed the children fund, giving what few dollars that I can afford. I have donated to food pantries, but there must be a better way to help those less fortunate, but what it is, I do not know.

Good Afternoon Miss E. I have tried the Wolf brand and I would not eat it again if they gave me the $1. lol
hubby and i gave up on finding a good can of chili from the super market. obviously this is subject to individual taste preference, but we believe a truly good can of store bought chili, does not exist. we can do spicy, but we like the spice of fresh jalapenos and green chili's, fresh green peppers and onions and one packet of French's chili-o.
not the spicy you get from the store canned variety that's often over loaded with enough chili powder to give a small horse an infarction
we pressure canned our own last year and were more than happy with the results. the beef only gets more tender and a quart sized mason jar holds just enough for us each to have a bowl and for him to take a bowl to work.

the plan was to have the cans as back up for when we didn't feel like putting a new crock on, and for me to stay on my every two week chili making schedule..... but it didn't go that way. we just kept opening up the cans till they were gone :)

we eat a lot of chili around here to the point that the ingredients including the pack of ritz crackers are put on our store budget equal to things like toilet paper and cat food and i think at this point hubby would think i had dropped my basket if he didn't come home one Friday morning to a crock of chili.

good chili is an art and it most definitely does not come out of a labeled can.

really i am just fickle..... i don't cook to cater to anyone else tastes but my own. if one doesn't like something, they can make a pp&j. luckily hubby likes the way i cook and has similar buds. or maybe he just doesn't want to live off of Pb&j's and Vienna sausages .....

@Betty. the only good chili I have found in the Market's is Bush's chili magic starter and you add meat and tomatoes. Caroll Shelby's packet fixings in a brown bag is fair. it is basically all the spices including some (can't think of the name) spicy flour if you like thicker, but it is for a bigger batch than I want at any particular sitting. I would make that if it was for more than just me.

In light of all the badness in our world these days, here's a spot of good news.

"Hostage standoff ends with kidnapper dead, child safe".

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/04/us/alabama-chil ...

~~
Midland City, Alabama (CNN)-- A six-day hostage standoff came to an end Monday when a man holed up a bunker was found dead and police recovered the 5-year-old he abducted, according to a law enforcement official.

The child appeared to be OK emerging from the ordeal, the official said.

Two ambulances left the scene shortly before 4 p.m.(5 p.m. ET).
~~

(Thank you Lord. I'm so glad to hear that this little guy is has finally been freed. What a traumatic ordeal).

When my children were still at home, they became picky as they got older. I was working all day and finally had enough! The kids asked what was for dinner. I replied "YOYO".
"YOYO"? Yes! You're On Your Own
We had YoYo at least three times a week

I just make the large batch and freeze small portions. Then I just microwave and make a pot of rice. The one thing that I dislike about being solo is sometimes I crave something but it seems so much trouble to make it for just myself

Lol. I bought a can for 20 cents -- I have never tried it. Maybe my old dog will eat it.
When I ran out of coffee the other day, I went to the Dollar General and also found myself craving a bowl of 'mater soup and a grilled cheese 'sammich'. I've had neither yet though because I'm committed to still trying to stick to my healthier eating regimen... It was an impulse buy. NEVER go to the store with the munchies, my friends. Not when you're trying to eat healthy..

But anyway, in the canned goods isle was this "Wolf" brand chili. I had a pang in my heart thinking back on Una and AW talking about it so frequently. I laughed at those posts so often. Up until then, I'd never even noticed it in the stores.

I'll never look at a can of "Wolf" chili the same way again. Not that I'll ever TRY it mind you.. There's nothing out there that can compare to homemade chili.. I'm afraid that even at 20 cents a can, it would simply go out to the chickens... My dogs would no doubt fart too badly even if I mixed it with their crunchies. It would be a horribly bad "dogs under the blanket" night here I'm sure, hehe.

I wonder if Una ever got around to trying AW's pointers on a quick and tasty home made recipe...

That's exactly what I do here, Ms Font. Even with huge pots of veggie soups, etc. You simply can't make a small pot of things like that and have it taste right. I start making soups, stews and chili late fall/early winter so that I have plenty set back for those days that I don't want to cook.
(Which are pretty frequent here lately)

Those small size zip lock freezer bags are the perfect size for one nice size serving. And they're easy to 'burp' the air out so you have a nice seal with no freezer burn. If you lay them flat in the freezer until they're frozen solid, you don't have to worry about things sliding around in your freezer when you rummage around for something quick to heat up. I've got a wide and flat RubberMaid container that I keep them in, stacked up right like you would books on a shelf, hehe.

LOL! Betty, my first husband swore that meatloaf was simply forming a pound or two of ground beef into a square and then salt and peppering it. His was HORRID, but he'd eat it no other way for quite a while..

Not until I finally fixed his tail end one day. I took onion, bread crumbs, the spices and everything else that I'd normally put into my own recipe and placed it into my food processor until it was in too small pieces for him to see the chunks. Then I added it into the hamburger and baked it. He made the remark that it was the best meatloaf I'd ever made. I thanked him and let him finish his meal, all three servings of this suddenly "marvelous" meatloaf.

I spilled the beans after he'd finished his dinner. He never complained about meatloaf ingredients after that night, hehe! I also never had to 'hide' the fixings for my meatloaf that way again either. He never really disliked anything I cooked, he was just spoiled from his mothers method of cooking, which I found to be tasteless and bland.

Thank you, getting wiser as older. I have seen things from all sides through my career. I still have something I can say I learn every day. I have learned a lot, a LOT, on this thread since the birds dropped. I will treasure it and those I have become so fond of the rest of my life. I so miss that ole fart I was having so much fun with after months of acting like hated filled ex's. lol

I did have a fine afternoon. Got some laundry done, went outside for a bit, picked up some windblown paper, limbs, etc out of my yard. Watched the biggest crows not the least bit intimidated by me being out there munching all the bread, buns, stale crackers etc..I put out there keeping the rest of the birds at bay above me on the telephone wires haha. Good thing for him the big fat greyboy wasn't out there rolling in the grass for some attention. I haven't seen him for a couple days. He probably has a second/third home out there somewhere. I have never seen him chase them or even pay them any mind. He is old and fat and just struts and lays in his chair that is his only. lol

Have a peaceful evening. I suspect Arthur will be visiting some of the bird threaders as the temp drops and the rain we have moves east. haha

My ex liked to act slovenly and rarely ate a decent meal. He became so verbally abusive that I had enough. He was lying on the couch drinking from a 2 liter bottle- oh yes- one day. Well, about the time he got preoccupied playing a video game an insect flew right into that sucker. I didn't say a word. I was watching from the front of the kitchen sink. To the this day he never knew He drank a bug. I figured, he'd just called me a few names so I cared less about him. I've gotten past it now, but I resented him for years threatening to kill me. I understand what you mean though by those kind of men. Life can always get better.

Like lala said, if you need a cyber topix hug, just pop in, chances are there will be someone to give you a ((HUG)). Ignore those idiots on that forum. We know you and him made peace. We know you are good people. Know, like he did that there are people you have never met(topix friends)rooting for you, hoping you are safe and wondering where you are if you haven't posted in a while. You hang in there.
