Tomorrow night will be the first advent of this event. What are the rules?
- In the interest of those whose blogs are not R-rated, the event will be called “The Recession Special: Hobo Mondays.”
- The meal must either serve 2 for $5 or less (total, not per person) or 4 for $10. If your family is larger than that, add $1.50 per additional family member. However, You cannot take advantage of economies of scale by making enormous meals that serve 200 and come in at $0.10 a person. Sometimes we only have $5 in our pockets and we still need dinner. Currency conversion is allowed.

Unlike First Thursdays, you don't need to use a cookbook to participate in Hobo Mondays.
Since it looks like many of us are going to be snowed in tomorrow (ya, I'll believe it when I see it), tomorrow night might be the perfect night for a creative Hobo dinner. We just might need to scrounge through our cupboards and see what we can throw together.
