Ms. AG's Friend:
During my training period with Ala. DOC, I was assigned at the bottom of the state. I was about 200 miles from home and could only return on the weekends. I would be so hungry for things other than food that I would nearly tackle my wife upon walking in the door. "Food! You better come here.""Honey don't break the table."...Wups!.......38 Special........

Food and my favorite dish:
2- eggs 1- Large fresh & sliced bowl of okra (You know, layed down on the cutting board and cut into round pieces. You ladies know all those fancy words, but I do not.). 3 to 4 - Fresh vine ripe large green tomatoes. Corn meal- sprinkle and mix enough that covers all ingredients. Milk- enough for moistening the meal after mixing all ingredients. 1-2 -onions chopped (if you like onions, but not required). Turn on oven and heat to 250 degrees F.
Dice those tomatoes to the size that you like (That's a man thing----"Like I want it!"). Slice that okra. Dice those onions. Mix together with your hands. ("Oh! My God it's so sticky. I know, don't you love it."). Drop two broken eggs into the mix and stir with a spoon. ("Not use my hands?" "No, you complained too much about being sticky."). Sprinkle corn meal into the mix while stirring until all ingredients is covered well. It should be dry and non-sticky now. Add milk until slightly soft and doughy--- not falling apart (Like you mix corn bread). Stir well. Stir well again. ("Why you stirring so much?" "You gotta do something while your oven heats."). Pour and place ingredients into a flat pan that will allow a layer of about four inches (four fingers high). You can use two pans should you need them. Bake until bread is done. The vegetables should be soft by this time also. Can be served alone in slices for the vegeterian or with your favorite sliced meat. Enjoy!...Happy eating>>>>>>>>>>>>>38 Special..............................

Mr. Fed-X:
That story reminds me of a funny story. We had a group of kitchen guys that loved making "Julip". They would put a state issued plastic cup in the bread mixer bowl. Call the steward (supervisor over food preparation), he/she would pour the yeast in the bowl, watch the guy mix the yeast and flour, and go back to the office. Well, the steward did not know about the cup nor did he know the guy was acting as though he was mixing the flour and yeast. Instead, he would shuffle the flour around the cup. Afterwards, the cup would be removed with about a half of pound of yeast.
We had an officer that was a "Super cop" that we called "Hound-dog". He could smell the julip as it brewed in the ceiling above the exhaust unit of cellblocks. One day, Hound-dog climbed into the top of the mop closet above the exh. vent for a bust. He got hung, but noone in the unit would help him nor report the misfortune. He remained in the unit closet about two hours before the cubicle operator stopped talking on the telephone to his girlfriend on the other end. The officer knew Hound-dog was in the block, but thought he was watching television. Hound-dog had to tear his shirt from his body where he could free himself. He came out of the closet looking like the chimney sweeper in "Cheety, Cheety, Bang, Bang" (Walt Disney movie). He had black colored dust all over his face, body , and trousers. He never went into the closet vents and attics again.
Hound-dog would smuggle marijuana into the facility in cigarette form, hide the cigarettes, and pretend finding it for a better rating at evaluation time. Hound-dog observed the bread cooks hiding the yeast and would exchange it for powdered bleach. He thought it was amusing watching the guys reveal that their yeast had been stolen.
Hound-dog later got caught in a homosexual act with one of his informants and was fired.

The winemakers would make julip similar to Mr. Conner's direction by using fruit cocktail, sugar, yeast, and water inside a plastic bucket. They preferred a plastic five gallon floor wax bucket with the narrow spout. The spout could be covered with a rubber glove or balloon for pressure and fume containment. They said that it made the wine stronger.
The wine in most Alabama facilities sold for one pack of name brand cigarettes per (8) eight ounce cup. I have found open five gallon buckets with a small portion remaining and cockroaches floating in it. I know they died happy from over intoxication......Cheers!..........38 Special.......................

I had a prisoner that I thought was an excellent salad man until I observed his sweat dripping from his nose into my bowl.

Our breakfast trays had eggs, sausage gravy, flat biscuits w/ a spoon of jelly, honey-butter, and oatmeal or grits served with a cup of juice (Kool-aid), cup of coffee, and a carton of milk. I ate it all the time and loved it.

Some of the kitchen prisoners would make 15 to 25 sandwiches such as BBQ, hamburgers, and bologna,egg, and cheese (BEC). They would put the sandwiches in whatever kind of bag they could find and smuggle sandwiches out of the kitchen inside their pants. I was told that a sandwich could cost as much as three packs of name brand cigarettes.

We once had a Commissioner that vowed cutting prison cost and removed all extras such as jelly, mayonaise, ketchup, mustard, napkins, and all the extras that we take for granted. The practice lasted until election of a new Governor.

I thought you might want to know,..........38 Special....

My husband worked in the kitchen somewhere in Alabama years ago and used to smuggle hamburgers out to sell. They called him the "Hamburgler."

Leonda,

Your right about the prices. The food stuff & other things wern't too bad but when your locked up your not making much money, so you try & make things stretch. A lot of guys when they leave will give away their TVs & stereos so they stay inside, we call them floaters. It's easier to come up with stuff on the outside than it is when your inside. It's a must to leave any walkmans cause they can make tattoo guns from the tape players.-----Ken

LOL, David & 38 Special, you guys bring back some old memories. Our "super cop" we called "ROBO COP". & after having a bag rip open soaking his pants, & shoes, he had the porters (prisoners who cleaned the cell block) take out all water bags just in case. David I completely forgot about saving the kicker. The guys would bounce it around from cell to cell trying to stay ahead of cell searches, it got comical sometimes.-----Ken

When Kenny and I were hurting for money at the middle of the week, we'd often scrape up enough money to get what we needed for a batch. Let me tell you...it looked EXACTLY like what I feed the dogs! He'd heat cream cheese and Velveeta with a little milk to make a thick sauce. Then he'd throw in the ramen noodles, a can of Hormel chili, crushed nacho dorritos, and pepperoni. Sometimes he'd also add beef-a-roni or tuna, but that was a bit too much for me. Jalapeno peppers are optional. Actually, it wasn't that bad...as long as I melted the cheese...he has a habit of burning it.

I remembered a couple of more last night talking to some old convict friends.

A tootsie pop= Make a mug of hot chocolate, but make it so the water is just hot enough to disolve the powdered hot chocolate, then add kool-aide. Cherry is best. Let it cool & add cold water. It taste just like a tootsie pop.

I forget what they call this one, but you make a cup of coffee with as hot as water as you can get, then you take a three musketeers candy bar, & put it in the very hot coffee, & disolve it. It Taste like a really rich chocolate coffee. If you make it with strong coffee, this will have you bouncing off the walls.


Peanut brittle. Take a lot of sugar & mix it with hot water into a runny syrup, you can also add pancake syrup, & mix this with peanut butter, & add peanuts. Spread it out & let it dry. Viola peanut brittle. Pancake syrup adds a distinctive flavor to it so don't add too much.---------Ken

These are great recipes!

My husband made his own cough syrup a while back when he had a head cold. He took orange juice and heated it up and dissolved cough drops in it, then sipped on it. He said it was the best cough syrup he ever used!

I have heard about this stuff! My ol man calls it "hooch" and it is made from fruit juice, sugar and yeast or bread. All this is mixed up and put into bags and buried outside somewhere until very ripe. Then you let the air out and bury it again until ripe again. I have heard it is super stout and will put hair on your chest but I will get you toasted.

Prison chow must really vary from state to state and institution to institution. Ohio has good chow at many institutions. Real Milk Ice cold and fresh from the prison dairy, then really good butter. We also had real steak and chicken several times. On a few occasions we had a fund raising drives for various things and We actually got to place an order a week in advance for Dominoe's Pizza two per inmate max.

The bad food however at my first institution was terrrible and the kitchen filthy. Luckily we were allowed to food boxes from home twice a year.

Default Nasty food

Hubby is in crc in Orient, Ohio and he hates the food. He buys most of his stuff from commissary. He lives on Ramen noodles and little debbie like snacks. He loves his chocolate, but between the heat and the ants it goes to waste if he buys it. He has to eat most of his sweats asap or the ants get inside the packages.

The food at the prisons I've been to here in Calif has always been fine. It's institutional food so it's kinda bland, but with salt & pepper, & what ever sspices you bring with you to the chow hall it's not bad. Some meals we even looked forward too, & some we hated, but it was more of an individual thing. Mon thru Fri we got two hot meals. breakfast & dinner, & sandwiches (2) for lunch. Sat & Sun we got 3 hot meals. In the Orange County Jail the food was also fine, with some meals being better than others depending on personal taste & we got three hot meals 7 days a week. As long as you ate in the chow hall your portions were good size in jail & prison, but in both if you had in cell feeding the portions were smaller than the chow hall, but were basically fine.-----Ken

Every Saturday night, my guy and his bunkies get a couple summer sausages, and macaroni and cheese from the store and cook it up. They claim its the only identifiable thing they eat all week.

Smile The spread!

Yeah,

I've had the spread. The one I had was made with Ramen noodles/potato chips for the dough, then they put squeeze cheeze on it, and sliced up slim jims, with tuna and diced pickles. Scary, but edible, just gotta close your eyes and use your imagination. I enjoyed the experience, but my stomache on the other hand was pretty pissed the next day!

JP,

Spreads are a trip, & everyone makes them different, in fact they are pretty much made differently everytime we make them. Ramen noodles & what ever else we had laying around. It was brave of you to try it. It looks & smells bad, but as you found out they taste Ok, but the next day can be fun, LOL. ---------Ken
