When my husband lost his job, and I was working a low-wage job, we ate lots of rice and beans! There are all kinds of recipes in vegetarian cookbooks, and some even taste like meat! We also ate vegetables we bought at the farmers' market, or gleaned from a neighbor's garden (at their invitation). My husband went fishing, and we had salmon and trout quite often! We baked our own whole wheat bread on Saturday morning. And, oatmeal and other whole grain cereals are real cheap, too. We never went hungry, even though we were living on very little income.

Actually that sounds pretty delicious. My wife would love it, other than the salmon and trout1 She's a vegetarian and that sounds pretty much like her typical diet. - Art
