I mean, just ASKING where to get that type of stuff in that neighborhood is enough to get you smacked around!
I am from that area and I could still find that stuff, but i sure wouldnt ask anyone if I couldnt. I used to know of a website that was nothing other than ramen noodle recipies, some great ideas on there. My fave has to be
2 packs ramen noodles cooked and drained
1 can of corn
1 t oil
combine noodles, corn, and seasoning packets in heated oil...fry...
have to almost burn em a little
mushrooms, onions or any meat can be added as well....
you'll also find some cool ones if you go looking for jail house recipies or talk to someone who has done time. Jail house burritoes r killer!
but even on a budget of nothing I still managed to make some great food in college. nice to have a little bit of a budget now days.
