The massive Baby Boomer generation which brought America the happiness of rock & roll and the Ford Mustang en masse is poised to trigger a surge in a scourge:

Same story here in Pittsburgh. We had a “food desert” neighborhood basically because the crime there was so high.
But city leaders deemed it RAAAAAAACIST that there should not be a grocery store there (you can draw your own conclusions as to why) and so they determined that there WILL be one.
And to achieve that they offered MASSIVE taxpayer subsidies to grocery store operators to go in there.
One was about to take the bait, but got a clue and bailed out at the last minute. Another one took the deal. But after several years of massive shrink and shoplifting (plus constant headbutting with locals that they “weren’t doing enough for the community”) they closed-up shop and bailed as well.
No doubt the subsidies are being doubled in order to bribe the next victim.
No perogies for you!
I suppose if it is safe enough to deliver pizzas, Publix would deliver food. But in that case, someone would open a big grocery store. They don’t open in those areas because the locals are violent thieves. The place I use to work had a Section 8 apartment complex across the street. There was a Food lion near there. They had all kinds of problems. The customers would wheel the shopping carts home and just leave them. Employees sent to collect then would be attacked by “yutes”. They finally installed a special cart system were the wheels would lock up when they were taken outside of a certain perimeter.
Sounds like a good deal, since you didn't have to raise it, catch it, wring it, pluck it, gut it, and cook it. After all, what could go wrong except maybe a little salmonella from time to time.
Coffee? You can do without coffee for breakfast?
just a dash for salt and color. add chili sauce.
Soy messes with your hormones for those of us of the male persuasion.

Bahn Xeo would be better, but I am talking quick cheap.
i agree. People that have kids just to take care of them in their old age just suck.
and no i don’t agree with “well, they took care of you” Yes they did. That was their job as parents.
I make coffee at home. It probably costs me a nickle a cup. I put it in a car cup and drink it while I am waiting in the drive through line.
Next week Lidl has chicken legs for $.45/lb. I will be stocking up.
The "food desert" thing is a crock.
Almost every single "food desert" once had a normal grocery store which was closed due to the shoplifting.
I can see myself going to a place like that and never coming back.
$5/day for food has long been my limit. It’s not hard to cook from scratch and don’t eat out.
Everyone is so into those delivery meals that you still have to make yourself so I searched around and stumbled on a ground beef with marinated carrots and zucchini and lime crema taco meal at Hello Fresh last month. Thats 3 tacos per person. With shipping, their average per person meal plan is $8.75. Geez, might as well go out and have someone else cook it for you and no dishes to wash.
I followed the Hello Fresh online recipe using my food and my cost was $1.20 for 3 tacos + 2 extra homemade flour tortillas per plate (Hello Fresh didnt allow for extra tortillas or butter). I had some veggies left over so those went into a meatloaf the next night. For a savings of $7.55 per meal, Ill continue to go that extra step and do my own grocery shopping. Some on FR would holler no way. The numbers dont lie.
lb ground beef - $2.16 (80/20%)
2 C flour - .15
margarine - .15
1 zuke - .39
2 carrots - .19
1/4th of an onion - .05
1/2 C sour cream - .33
seasonings and misc. - .18
Last night, dinner was a $1 pound package of 5 chicken/blue cheese sausage links, roasted potatoes and a beet salad. My plate was 20 cents sausage, 15 cents potatoes and 18 cents for the salad which totaled 53 cents. Snort, much tastier than those msm mythical senior meals of canned cat food for the same price.
Breakfast this morning was 5 strawberries in cream so pennies. Lunch was 1 1/2 slices of leftover homemade pizza so 47 cents (the other 1/2 slice was greatly enjoyed by the very sick dog to encourage him to take his pills since he’s off his feed). A cookie sheet sized pizza costs about $2.50 made with homemade crust and bits of whatever leftovers used as toppings.
Tonight will be a 50 cent pound package of spicy beef sausage links (yes, happened upon great sales with those sausages so stocked the freezer) with leftover rice in some sort of a jambalaya and a salad so very cheap. The rice was leftover from a little piece of leftover $2.99/lb roast beef that was turned into a quick Chinese stir fry. Yeah, gotta get off the carbs.
Chicken legs? You mean “drum sticks” don’t you?
Were I not married to an American woman who does not like to travel that would have happened about 6 years ago.
It says “whole chicken legs”. The drum stick and the thigh. Best part, IMHO.
