I was looking for an old depression-era recipe my grandmother used to make and stumbled upon this odd booklet--a collection of recipes from the USDA using nonfat dry milk--everything from 'peanut butter cup milk' to macaroni and cheese to condensed soup mix to....banana-walnut oatmeal....

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!

When my mother was on WIC decades ago, they supplied USDA recipes for those foods as well. IIRC, one of her vouchers included two pounds of dried beans, any variety, and another included one pound of rice, white only.

I've noticed that the shelf labels indicate WIC will now allow brown rice.

I learned that Uncle Ben's has a steaming process that pushes most of the nutrients into the white kernel, so their white rice is apparently as healthy (just about) as brown rice.

(A whole hour-long show about rice, seriously)

That’s one of the cultivars of “black rice” (See; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_rice ).

I can believe it. There are full hour long shows about what happens to garbage after the truck picks it up!
