Shove it in Your Face!

Greetings comrades! Unfortunately, you've already had to hear about the failing economy and the most recent failures of national banks. You've probably already heard tips on what to do, what to expect and how to plan for your future. But, if you're a fan of this blog, then we hope that you feel proud, and maybe even a bit smug, because you've already been economizing in your kitchens. We believe that the guerrilla gourmet movement shouldn't be tied to losing stocks, but to making stocks; and shouldn't rely on the happiness of fat cats, but instead on the happiness of hip cats.
Okay, maybe the last one was a bit of a stretch, but honestly? Schaefer's usually the one who spins our vision of the guerrilla in the gourmet, I'm just plain creative and a bit cheap. I want to eat as well as I can, but I also need to be able to pay next month's rent. Therefore, as times are getting tighter and leaner, I'm hopeful that our recipes, insights and outlooks maybe able to help us all get through this! With that being said, I still would rather have our portion of the bailout to cook dinner with...

This week's menu after the jump...
Monday: Red Chile Empanadas with Black Beans and Spanish Rice. Lager.
Tuesday: Quiche with warmed spinach salad. White Wine.
Wednesday: Green Chile Stew with Corn muffins. Lager.
Thursday: Colcannon. Lager.
Friday: Schaefer's blow-out birthday dinner, details to come. I'm thinking red, red wine.
