A Cookbook for Frito Pie, and other Prison Creations
Behind bars, you got a lot of time on your hands and not a whole lot of eating options, so you’re bound to get creative. From the Big House to Your House is a collection of 200 recipes by six female Texas inmates who were sick of jail food and wanted something “homemade.”
How creative are they getting when there’s no oven, refrigerator, stoves, knives, or even fresh food for that matter? Let’s just say a potato chip bag doubles as a pot and toothpaste tubes can be spoons if you really think about it.
What are the favorites in this cookbook? Tuna nachos and “baked potato” made of crushed potato chips and water. These recipes may not sound tasty for those of us on the outside, but they sure are interesting! ($14.95 @ amazon.com)
