I recently heard about the recent food stamp budget cuts. The average member allotment per meal is at $1.40 presently. How can one survive on less? For those recently unemployed, this will shake your foundation more trying to keep abreast. But, with recipes such as these, you can still incorporate wholesome, thirfty meals into your family's budget.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening or margarine
Mix dry ingredients in bowl. Sift three times if you have a sifter to lighten it. Add shortening and work with your fingers or pastry blender until mixture looks like small crumbles. Add to any recipe asking for "bisquick mix"
