Food stamps (used to?) come with recipes like these using nonfat dried milk and other inexpensive sources of protein--chop meat, dried beans, bulk cheese, peanut butter. How to fix cheaper produce--fresh, canned and frozen. How to fix hot cereals (cheaper than dry), good meals for children, regional and Mexican meals. Due to being on food stamps for a few months when my husband lost his job and I was a nursing SAHM, I learned about split pea soup w/ham hock and corn bread, lentil soup and biscuits, refried beans and tortillas, beef stew, Mexican style pickled vegetables, cooking hot cereal in milk with added milk powder, homemade custard and pudding, spanish rice, homemade bread using the Cornell formula. I didn't grow up eating this way in my Jewish suburb of NYC!
