Yes and no, it is the old saying "It's not what you do it's the way that you do it."  She bought a crap-ton of land to donate to the Federal Government develop into a National Park, which is fine and a noble pursuit,  But she placed a bunch of restrictions on the donation that would have major implications on the surrounding land,  also when she buys land she immediately cuts off access to it, which again is fine except, she will gate off state maintained roads on her property that allow access to other properties not owned by her.  Then the state has to drag her to court to open the roads back up.  She feels the State of Maine, who incidentally has managed one of the countries finest State Parks in the country since 1931, is not a good land steward.  Add into that while she claims to be an environmentalist, and loves the State of Maine, when her business expanded she built her factory in North Carolina because of Maine's strict environmental laws and labor costs.  Plus as the locals would say she is "from away" and has come up there to tell them how to run their state.

The guys who founded the company are two lawyers from Beverly Hills, California.

I was at the grocery store the other day when it finally dawned on me that everything, including frozen pizza, is 50 or 100% higher in price than it was just a few years ago. Which is fine, I guess...if my wages weren't stagnant. Since I don't have (or want) a family of my own, it's easier to pay only slightly more for dinner at a modestly priced restaurant (not fast food) than it is to buy all the ingredients myself. FFS, at the store I looked at Hamburger Helper (my go-to drunk cuisine) and the mix, beef, and milk was roughly $10, or about the price of a ginormous po-boy across the street that's made with unprocessed stuff. Bonus: /No pans and plates to wash. No stove top to clean.

Being single or just without a family makes grocery shopping seem absurd.

This is the best recipe for pizza dough that I've tried so far. For my son's birthday last year, I made six pizzas and they were all fantastic with no leftovers.

http://www.annies-eats.com/2010/04/29/perfect-homemade-pizza-crust-t ip s-and-tricks/


Basic Pizza DoughYield: enough dough for 2 medium pizzas or 4 calzonesIngredients½ cup warm water

2¼ tsp. instant yeast
4 cups (22 oz.) bread flour, plus more for dusting
1½ tsp. salt
1¼ cup water, at room temperature
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
DirectionsMeasure the warm water into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup.  Sprinkle the yeast over the top.  In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the bread flour and salt, mixing briefly to blend.  Measure the room temperature water into the measuring cup with the yeast-water mixture.  With the mixer on low speed, pour in the yeast-water mixture as well as the olive oil.  Mix until a cohesive dough is formed.  Switch to the dough hook.  Knead on low speed until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turning once to coat.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, 1½-2 hours.

katerbug72: This is the best recipe for pizza dough that I've tried so far.


If you are like me and are super lazy and have a bread machine this one is great, set your machine to proof the dough.  If you are working all day put the wet ingredients in first then the dry with the yeast on top and set it to start 3 hours before you get home.  Fresh pizza dough when you walk through the door.

2 teaspoons dried granulated yeast
3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water, plus 2 tablespoons water

Buying premade or packaged combos should not be confused with the costs of buying actual food ingerdients and cooking.

Not that there aren't well priced takeout joints...

I have both DiGiorno and Red Baron's pizzas in my fridge. I actually like the Red Baron ones better. Must be the way my Pizzazz pizza cooker heats them up. DG ones are a pain to get just right (even when you follow directions of 12 minutes bottom + 12 minutes Dual), but with RB it's plug in, turn knob to 16-17 minutes, DING PIZZA'S DONE!

Sure, but if it's a take-out order the tip won't be more than a few bucks (for table service I tip like a monster). Still arrives at the same total for the grocery store, minus the mess and having to be sober enough to cook and clean.

Adult beverages are already here.

It's the little sh*t that drives me crazy, though. Those 99-cent Totino's pizzas we all ate while stoned are now $1.59. No, that doesn't break the bank, but it's disturbing when you try to apply the same percentage to your earnings. Now extrapolate that to an entire cart of groceries.

I really don't want to scare you or anything, but you might want to check the as pump next time you fill up. Or even your electric bill. As someone who hasn't had a raise since '05, I can concur. In fact things like health insurance have also gone up dramatically. It's been a constant battle to keep finances balanced. And before people tell me to just get another farking job, I can work from home, and well that means I get to work from home. No battle with traffic or even having to get up early. Like I said, it's a balance, but glad to see someone else noticing everything has gone up in price. Quite the epiphany huh.

Total: $12.71 + tax
Feeds a family of four, twice. 

Cooking skills required: well nigh zero.
Prep time: 30 min, includes washing and cutting lettuce.
Cleanup time: Depends how well you trained the kids.

I know single people who cook twice a week, eat and freeze leftovers.
They get the same economy of scale as with cooking for four, granted foods are a bit less fresh.


4 x top ramen = $0.44

2 servings in each bag

that's $0.44 for 2 whole meals for the entire family

and plenty of meth money left over

Cyno01: AdolfOliverPanties: CPK and DiGiorno are both owned by Nestle?

What's next, Burt's Bees is really owned by Sue Bee Honey?

 Click for huge.


As always, Faygo stands alone. This is as it should be. Love the stuff.

Why? It seems like every other knockoff water+syrup+sugar 'soda' I've had

Just dropped in to say that I think DiGiorno's is one of the ghastliest, foulest examples of frozen food sold in supermarkets these days.

Correction, if you go to ALDI you're doing it wrong. Deposit for carts? purchase bags to carry my groceries home? How lame.

WD: Make your own damn pizza. Hell, even the $1 Trader Joe's pizza dough ball makes a pretty biatchin' pie.


I have three of these in my fridge for this week.

Do the needful: dickfreckle: It's the little sh*t that drives me crazy, though. Those 99-cent Totino's pizzas we all ate while stoned are now $1.59. No, that doesn't break the bank, but it's disturbing when you try to apply the same percentage to your earnings. Now extrapolate that to an entire cart of groceries.

I really don't want to scare you or anything, but you might want to check the as pump next time you fill up. Or even your electric bill. As someone who hasn't had a raise since '05, I can concur. In fact things like health insurance have also gone up dramatically. It's been a constant battle to keep finances balanced. And before people tell me to just get another farking job, I can work from home, and well that means I get to work from home. No battle with traffic or even having to get up early. Like I said, it's a balance, but glad to see someone else noticing everything has gone up in price. Quite the epiphany huh.


Oh, I most definitely notice that stuff, too. But for some reason the grocery store is what really pisses me off even if it's not that best example of stagnant wage vs. prices. I think it sticks with me because as a college student and generally retarded guy trying to fill his fridge, I recall all the prices and measure my dollar accordingly. Just this week I actually muttered aloud "f*ck" while trying to find a side dish for dinners.

Thinking about gasoline just makes me want to punch another hole in the drywall. Even on a motorcycle (I commute on it), it's $18 to fill her up vs. $8 when I was earning a similar living before Iraq gave these goatsuckers an excuse to buttsecks all of us. I'm lucky that I live in a walking sort of town, but what if I lived in the Midwest or wherever I needed a truck just to earn a living? Speaking of trucks, that's why guys like me end up pissed off at the grocery store. Gotta pass that rape to someone.
