I always buy bananas and wait for them to get brown, and make banana milk with them. I'll try to freeze them and also add oats, that sounds really good

115gr 9mm with Turkish primers and range brass. It's cheap to load--about 15cpr--just as fun as +P+, and doesn't beat the hell out of your frame.

If you have a shot timer, you can do timed draw and fire drills with a single shot from concealment, put in over an hour at the range, and only spend a few bucks in ammo.

The real splurge is 220gr 10mm. That shit is expensive any way you do it.

Cream of wheat made with whole milk and a dab of salted butter.

Not very sweet but very rich, warm, and filling

Raw mushrooms dipped in Hidden Valley are pretty good.. I love how they pop lightly when your teeth pass through them. You also can't go wrong with a peanut butter and banana sandwich..

I have a copycat recipe for Taco Bells quesadilla sauce that is dirt cheap to make. I've probably made 30 liters of it in my lifetime. Smear that on a mini flour tortilla with some Great Value grilled chicken strips (no doubt made with tortured chickens to keep the price low) and a bit of shredded cheese (cheddar and monteray jack) and you've got one hell of a tasty quesadilla to fry up.

Here's the recipe for the sauce. Let me know if you get around to making it. Would love to know what you think.

1 cup mayo (I use Helman's 1/2 fat)

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp pickled jalapeno juice (from Old El Paso pickled jalapeños)

2 tsp cumin

2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

A dash of salt

And how ever many diced pickled jalapeños you see fit

Real popcorn popped in a pot with olive oil and sea salt. Dead easy and cheap.

Fancy coffee.

One spoonful of peanut butter right off the spoon. Lascivious.

Toast with butter and brown sugar. Super cheap, super good, and basically ingredients almost every household has.

Chopped, frozen strawberries in milk. Sometimes with maple syrup. Cream if I'm feeling rich.

Brown soda bread made with buttermilk, still warm from the oven with butter and good cheddar. So comforting. It's like tasting my childhood again.

BonesOfTheMoon ,

Do you have a recipe?

khannie ,
@khannie@lemmy.world avatar

I'm gonna get you the proper measurements etc. tomorrow because it's very late here but the ingredients are:

400g wholemeal flour

White plain flour, seived (my own preference is about 1/4 but you let your mouth decide from experience)

Baking soda

Pinch of salt

Buttermilk until it's fairly mushy

Honestly you just lump it all together. Make a circular mound out of it. Criss cross with a knife and lob it in the oven on a floured baking tray at 180C for fan.

I'll get you a proper recipe in the morning or poke me if I forget. It's hard to do wrong and I'm not a good baker.

BonesOfTheMoon ,

That's good enough, I can work with that. Thank you!

Here's a decent one. I was pretty close. :D

I would tend to do 400 / 100 brown to white, no wheatgerm as I said but I do like it it a bit more dense. Higher white flour ratio will have it slightly less dense so up to yourself. It's technically possible to do with normal milk and baking powder (instead of buttermilk / baking soda) but I would always go with the buttermilk and soda myself.

I also frequently use that recipe and just roll it out and cut scones out of it with a glass or large cutter. They cook faster for hungry kids and have more crust (which I like).

Interested to hear if you do give it a whirl. :)

edit: I had a quick look at your post history and see you're vegan. Baking powder (probably 2tsp I imagine for the acid + base instead of 1 for just the base when using baking soda) with oatmilk I would imagine would be totally fine. I'm not sure if there are any acidic vegan milks that would be the equivalent of the buttermilk?

In a pinch I have used cows milk, baking soda and a small amount of vinegar or even lemon juice in the milk for raising. Good luck!

BonesOfTheMoon ,

Ok I'm vegan so I'll have to substitute a bit but that's fine, I can make it work! Thanks.

You can't just lay that out there without giving us the deets on how to create it ourselves

khannie ,
@khannie@lemmy.world avatar

Hahaha. In a short space I've had two folks asking for it.

It honestly couldn't be simpler. I did reply to the other request with the basics and will get back to you both in the morning as it's 2am here. :)

Here you go. :) Let me know if you give it a whirl!

Hint of Lime Tostitos and guacamole. I could eat an entire bag, which is why I rarely buy them.

SatansMaggotyCumFart ,

Where can you get cheap guacamole?

kinder bueno icecream perhaps?

Not sure if this counts as "little" because it has to go into the oven for 45mins... But it's assembled in under 5 minutes and you can get rid of your old bananas that already turned brown:

Banana bread

4 Bananas, 80ml (vegetable) oil, 80g sugar, 250g flour, 2tsp baking powder, 1tsp vanilla sugar, some chocolate (drops).

Smash the bananas, mix in all the other ingredients to a smooth dough. Find some chocolate from christmas that's still laying around in the house, crush it and mix it in.

Bake it at 170°C. Takes 40-50min in a loaf pan. Don't forget to grase the pan before or use baking parchment.

Doesn't need any fancy ingredients like milk or eggs. And you can pretty much wing it. You can also experiment, put some cinnamon or oat flakes in... And don't bake it too well, I think it's best when it's still a bit gooey and moist inside.
