You are evil, I think with Mexican food its order is Taco Bell, 10 for 10 frozen burritos, store brand tortillas and bulk canned beans, finally homemade everything.

i-am-evil, I think it depends on if you`ve forsaken the hot dog buns yet. But I`d say the microwave burritos come before: they have more to `em than a simple hot dog.

Next step you`ll be eating your shoeleather and then barley husk soup and then your neighbours` kids.

Where would microwave burritos fall on this timeline?

......before or after hot dogs?

[quote]Ramen`s great. [/quote]
Aside from the fact that it has enough salt in it to kill garden slugs.

Also, for some reason pork is HELL of a lot cheaper than beef.

I eat Ramen even though I can afford more cause I actually like it.
And Hamburger, what USED to be the cheap alternative meat, is now more expensive than most other beef. We actually bought a meat grinder and grind up cheaper cuts of meat into hamburger just to save a few bucks.

@HumanAction,
Crazy, isn`t it? Same deal applies to dairy. Cheese here is crazy with a 500g block being about $9 and milk being about $4.50 for 4 liters. And don`t get me started on booze!

Before they introduced the "Passport" requirements to enter the U.S., we used to cross the boarder for meat, cheese and booze all the time.

Ramen`s great. Besides being cheep it`s easy to doctor up into a meal. Throw in a mess of frozen vegetables, chop up any leftover meat in the fridge or just crack a raw egg into it when your boiling it. Soy sauce or sesame seed oil, add garlic or cilantro. Or just the spice it came with.

People with EBT cards buy food that I can`t afford myself. They don`t ever use coupons or discount cards either. (6-midnight PT cashier at a supermarket) Never ramen, never!

Jesus. I just got Porterhouses from the butcher for $7.99/lb and fresh swordfish steaks for $14.99/lb.

Then again, we only eat meat 3x a week so we usually have nicer meals when we do.

Chicken? You clearly haven`t been to Ontario. Here, chicken breasts are about $5 each. We used to do the spaghetti thing when times were tight, but last week, a pound of hamburger was $10.

38 years of farm subsidies to corporate food conglomerates and it`s somehow Obama`s fault, huh Vic.

Do all conservatives have the memory span of a brain damaged goldfish?

I`m in-between "ramen" and "popcorn" stages...
Not "microwave popcorn" just... popcorn (and butter!)

Fun Fact: At my supermarket?
Bulk (no name) popcorn costs 19 cents per 100 grams...
Bagged `no name` popcorn? 1.79 / kilo
2.29 for a 2 kilo bag...

YOU do the maths!

The two on the right got me through university. I had a drawer that would hold a case of ramen, and the local grocery had reward stamps for dollars spent. At least once a month you could get a package of hot dogs for fifty cents a pack with the stamps.
