Maggie is of course the most famous greengrocer's assistant from the UK, from Grantham, and she does like Zug and Phillip Morris. Not as sharp as she used to be though.
I'm still confused...

You are way above the 10chf limit of absinthe

Re: Making dinner for two under 10CHF?

Mme Tas de chair, of course.

In 1992 Margaret Thatcher signed on as an international consultant to the Philip Morris tobacco company at a pay rate of US $500,000 annually, with half to be paid directly to Mrs. Thatcher and half to be paid to the Margaret Thatcher Foundation.

The papers, released under the 30-year rule, reveal how Mrs Thatcher was under intense pressure by the summer of 1980 with little sign that her harsh economic policy was working. She was bolstered during a short holiday at Lake Zug in Switzerland, during which a group of Swiss bankers offered assurances that her policies were sound

Re: Making dinner for two under 10CHF?

I love risotto with peas, sweetcorn, mushrooms and onions, and obviously herbs, and stock etc. Yum yum!! Also can add in some sausage bits if there are any in the fridge, or chicken!! Mmmm....making me hungry!

Re: Making dinner for two under 10CHF?

I love to use any wild found goodies - especially mushrooms which I dry, and which would cost a fortune in a specialist shop, like morels, bolets (porcini) and lots of others that my dad taught me about. Add with bacon bits and a bit of cream+ pasta, or rice + homegrown salad- and 10Chuffs is still a long way away, even with a good sprinkling of the best Jura cheese.

I often make an omelet pizza - omelet with 4 eggs and bits and bobs lying around- then cover with a sprinkling of good cheese and under the grill for a couple of mins.

Of course, absinthe soufflé or ice-cream are favourites

To be honest, I still don't understand.

Never mind. You can take me shopping for onions some day, and you'll see why MN always insists I come with her...

Maggie Thatcher (sounds like "tas de chair" in french) is the daughter of a green grocer and she certainly worked as assistant in her parent's shop.

Re: Making dinner for two under 10CHF?

Maggie also had a diet regime, way before Atkins came on the scene, and almost certainly do-able for under CHF 10:

Apparently you hit it (lightly) with your fist and you can tell by the sound it makes if its good or not

THURSDAY: Dinner: 2 eggs, cottage cheese, piece of dry toast, cabbage

If I knew that's all I could expect when I got home in the evening, I'd stay at work and eat my mouse mat.


Aldi sell fresh chickens for around 7-8CHF and which can easily do four meals, if you want to eat cheaply and avoid living entirely off pasta/rice and vegetables.

However, I've found the easiest way to eat cheaply is by hopping over the border to Germany or France. Admittedly, it's not so much of a hop if you live in Nidwalden.

Re: Making dinner for two under 10CHF?

Delicious veggie cuisine at Hiltl from the buffet, free water from the faucet provided, then a full course of Asian vegetables with rice and then a sprint out of the door, left turn towards Jelmoli and keeping up the speed dashing over Bahnhofstrasse and mingle into the crowd and relax. Free lunch.

I squeeze the bottom. If it is ripe, it should give just a little bit. Too stiff, and it's not ready. Too squishy, and it's too far gone.

A firm, yet yielding, bottom is exactly what you're looking for.
