Food bank cook book
2 small white potatoes
3 slices of chicken
1 can chicken noodle soup
Part of the challenge of living off of charity is learning how to create meals out of happenstance groceries.
Take 2 of the potatoes that were included in your monthly food bag, slice them into thin slices and place in casserole, add salt and pepper. Take 3 slices of the deli sliced chicken you were given and tear them into pieces and place around the sliced potatoes. Add a can of chicken noodle soup and a can of water. (If you are cooking on a stove or hot plate, you should probably add more water.) Put in oven at 350 degrees and bake for one hour.
This makes a surprisingly filling meal for one.
Sadly, in the times we are living in, food bank cooking will be quite the thing.
