Cheap Livin’ in the City

Perfect for those living in NYC and its environs, NY Magazine presents it’s “Cheap Living Guide“. A lot of the ideas are good for any big city and it’s dive bar feature on the Nancy Whiskey Pub holds a dear place in my heart. Some bits are food related, but I’m all up for anything inexpensive – especially in these economic troubling times.

Phil and I are going to try and put up a little guide to making something frugally, whether is using dried beans or making your own seitan, etc., this weekend. We’ll also be making a bunch of gifts (starting now) for the holiday season, which probably won’t be limited to $30/week rules, but we’ll get back to you on that.

Last night’s dinner was some delicious oven-baked “fries”, faux-curry chicken salad sandwiches on pilfered bagels from volunteer session and oven roasted brussel sprouts. For lunch, I whipped up some pumpkin soup in the crockpot last night and ladled it out this morning. A full report on how it tastes and recipe later.
