Cheap and Comforting Foods

Ylan Mui

The problem with bringing my lunch to work is that I'm still hungry after I eat my microwaveable meal.

A practical person would simply bring more food, but that makes me feel piggy. Those who know me would say that I'm always hungry, so it really doesn't matter how much food I bring, which I will not dispute.

It doesn't help that I've been drooling over this concoction all day: a doughnut bacon cheeseburger. If you're the kind of person who used to (or still does!) dip your French fries into your Frosty, then you would like this. It seems simple and cheap to make and could be a good way to clean out your fridge.

It also made me wonder whether people are eating more comfort foods these days as an escape from the economic doom-and-gloom. The Cheapskate Blog recently posted a photographic paean to his all-time favorite cheap foods, including Spam and White Castle burgers. Girl on the Brink ruminates on the return of Ramen.

Tell us your favorite recession foods. It will help take my mind of that Krispy Kreme burger!

Wait a minute - it's piggy to bring to work an amount of food that will satisfy your hunger?

I bring an apple and a carrot to work for my midmorning and midafternoon snacks because they are (a) healthier and (b) cheaper than the locally available alternatives. A very easy way to cut out needless spending.
