    Best bang-for-the-buck foods

    What are your favorite inexpensive nutrient-dense foods?

    (As you can tell from recent posts I'm in belt-tightening mode following my DD's wedding.

    THAT DRESS!! Oh you guys outdid yourselves, it is stunning.

    Okay--just made a jarrahdale pumpkin soup, and combine that with homemade whole wheat bread--dh uses the recipe from the King Arthur Cookbook with molasses and honey--I like a mixtrue but the latest loaf was only molasses and it was very rich and dark, perfect for fall.

    What is jarrhadale?

    Jane, you and DH should be culinary partners. He would go 75/25 if he could. There was a Halal market near us in NJ that sold ground beef with that much fat, and DH overlooked his somewhat biased views to patronize the market regularly.

    It's the only kind of pumpkin I grew this year, so it wouldn't cross with anything, and damned if it didn't cross with some squash my husband grew over by the barn:

    Is he an aficionado of all foods ethnic? If I had a staff, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, Vietnamese, Chinese, etc. would be 75% of my diet.

    I would definitely patronize a halal market if there were one nearby.

    It's true I like my meat old-style, with fat and flavor intact. Any food stripped of its natural fat is an abomination, IMO.

    Well, he's not that adventurous (he doesn't like spicy food), but he is obsessed with Asian street food--he watches videos of it morning, noon, and night. He wanted to buy me a street food tour when I went to Japan, but I never took him up on it.

    From my very limited experience, Japanese is my least favorite of Asian cuisines, due to its dependence on seafood, but I would have been happy to go along with him for ramen, yakisoba, curries, and tempura. I hope he got to go on his own.

    Really?? I LOVE Japanese food.. but I love seafood. I love the simplicity, the presentation...

    We didn't go to Japan together (business travel), so he has yet to explore the street food of Japan or China or anywhere else in Asia, unfortunately.

    Picture of the AIRLINE food (ANA--All Nippon Airlines). It was gorgeous, and tasted gorgeous, too.

    Agreed, too bland.

    i ate more of it.
