Nice job on this. It was one of those things I meant to do but never got to it.


I, too, saw this too late. And I have a recipe for Garlic, Rosemary Chicken that uses cheap chicken hindquarters that I buy for 49 cents a pound! Oh well. Good job on the roundup. The recipes look great!

Wow, Lindy that's a terrific job you did. And look at all these entries! This a going to be a month of plenty for -almost- nothing! Thank you!


Thank you so much for dreaming up and hosting the event, Lindy. My stomach, wallet and I are going to enjoy going through these entries!

Applause for a very nice round up. Thank you for hosting the event.


Great recipes. Thanks for thinking of this theme & hosting it.


Great round up - thanks, I think these recipes are going to get a lot of use!


Wonderful on three counts, Lindy: your inspired idea, your beautiful round-up, and this marvelous collection of recipes. Thanks so much!


Oh, Lindy, this is just grand. Thank you so much for putting this together. I did try to think of some nice dessert to contribute, but between the weekend's jam adventures and the continuing laptop mishegoss, I just never got it together, to my deep regret. Could I persuade you to do it again in the not-too-distant future, so that I can come through for you?


Thanks all. It was fun. Now I'm reeling a bit with roundup burnout. So, bakerina, I'm not really ready to think about doing it again too soon! But we can always just go visit you for the best of food and writing.

It did occur to me while working on this that all baking is relatively inexpensive-even with the finest ingredients. And there's nothing more luxurious than a pie full of in-season fruit. Let the growing season begin.


You are a star, and a very hard working one at that. I am awed. I look forward to a long session with all these great ideas, and a fat bank balance.


Thanks for coming up with a wonderful idea and for hosting!

Wow - awesome round-up! That must've taken forever to do...


What an absolutely wonderful job with the roundup, Lindy! Everything sounds delish, but I have to admit that I think the first thing I will make is your Muhjadarrah. I have been craving it ever since I first read about it. I know, I know, what on earth am I waiting for? : )

Lindy, great idea and great job rounding up all of these delicious sounding recipes. Now the real fun begins as we all get cooking!


Thanks, all. I won't be running out of ideas for supper in the near future!

Thanks for a terrific roundup and your kind word. Kudos to Third Shift in Las Vegas and sweet pleasure for showing that frugal fare can be elegant and please the eye as well as the palate.


What a lovely idea...can't wait to try some of these recipes.


This is excellent! Just what I needed for inspiration. I think I will make fried apples on toast. Inspired by what looks like oranges and celery on grapefruit slices, peeled.

My all time favourite recipe of my own invention when I was down to nothing is:

bread or bun
slices of onion
splash some vinegar ontop
add pepper/salt
(optional: good mustard if you have it, and you should! Put on first in that case)
it's quite delicious, believe me
