On the Frugal Beauty of Pork Neck Bones and Rice, Straight from the Delta
Yesterday I found a fabulous recipe on a site called "Junior's Juke Joint." The writer, a cultural anthropologist says the recipe comes from Carolina Henderson, the cook and old blues song expert at ZZ's Blues Joint in Ferriday, Louisiana.Thank you, Carolina, for what turned into a frugal feast for Saturday night for my familiy of four.
Here's the link to the recipe. I didn't have green onions; instead I sliced two large white onions from the pantry, I added a cup of shirakiku sweet brown rice (I'd bought the 10-pound bag for $15 on an earler trip to HMart.) And we had all the spices and oils handy. Voila! Sumptuous meal for four. My estimate on how much this dinner cost?
$3 at most. That's 75 cents a person!
Next time, we will play a little BBKing to add to the ambiance!
