H2O, which was okay but they didn't tell me that I needed a newer phone -- so when said phone "died" I assumed it was them, switched away, found out it was that EDGE/G2 cell calls were no more.
Now I use Puretalk. The ten-dollar plan I had went away even though they grandfathered me in, so I don't know what to suggest. WiFi phone with an app from a VoIP provider like CallCentric? I pay $5/mo for my home phone.

 I thought this was going to be a generic thread for "things you've done that only poor people have done"
In which case the mcdonalds ketchup on raman noodles incident is likely at the top of the list. Would fain have used the spices included, but it got knocked into the carpet after it was torn open.

Ketchup is exactly the same taste as caramelized Onion + tomato sauce.   This is actually a really expensive (time intensive) sauce to produce before industrialization shortcuts.  No need to resent eating the Chup, it's Top Tier, that's why we eat so much of it.

Last summer I got several pounds of portobello mushrooms at an insanely cheap price (long story - farmers' market overage) and I made most of them into mushroom ketchup.

It is exquisite.
What this shows is that the Republican Party knows, deep down somewhere, that even before Trump they had less than a policy agenda. All they’ve had for the past decade or so is strategy and tactics to suppress the vote, either through extreme gerrymandering or State-level laws. More often than not, as we’re seeing, through both. Without a stated party platform they are left with nothing but the insanity of The Power Grab and The Big Lie. The Party as a whole has, for some twisted logical reason, decided that America no longer needs Democracy. That in the bent and tortured reality Republicans have created for themselves America was never a Democracy, the Founders never intended for the country’s politics or social order to change, that the country’s democratic features would always only extend to wealthy White Christian property owners. They’ve also, collectively, decided that threatening major, multi-billion dollar corporations that employ tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people worldwide will somehow, for some reason, cower in the corner when State politicians decide to take a few million in subsidies off the table. When faced with hundreds of millions, or even billions, in lost business because The People are voting with their wallet, I know where I’d position my company, and it’s not at the dinner table with Mitch McConnell and his wife.

T-mobile has a plan for 55+ or 65+ or something.  60 USD inclusive for two lines.  Split the plan with a parent and you each have a 'real' network for the price of prepaid.

This is why I want a freeze dryer, so I can remove the water without adding so much heat <which> boils away the flavor.

for crying out loud man, just watch cody's lab video, no need for an expensive freeze dryer, just 5 years into a normal freezer and you get the same results :)

Used to make ketchup back when I first started as a sous chef. No one else wanted to do it because that job sucks.
All I did for the first 3 months. Make ketchup, melt chocolate, organize the walk-in, and decap mushrooms for 8 hrs a day. No wonder I bailed on that career.

when covid is done come to france, here chefs are rare and well paid, cousin of mine is a chef and has no problem find jobs after jobs, he is rather picky about everything so he often works a week or two and then quits :) and still he is the one saying what goes on the contract. although french is a pain to learn and life is a tad more expensive.
that is if you still want to get into cooking, it is a rather thankless job afterall.

See, if they had a freeze dryer, it would've been way easier and faster.

I think total for the 3 lines I have active w/ OG Unlimited (I use 32GB/mo on my phone alone) & Insurance for all the phones/devices I pay $170ish (phones have been paid off for 4 years now - was $300 with the phone payments).  I'm always hunting for better deals on VZW's network that will fit our needs - the biggest part is true unlimited on the data.

I'm still on 20 euro a month prepay cos I've unlimited data and national calls. Can't call international which is the only downside but I just use the landline on the rare occasion I have to do that.
