My husband kept offering the man other foods from his stash, but the man only wanted biscuits. My husband asked him if he thought the biscuits were good. He said, "Every morning when I was a little boy, my mama baked biscuits for breakfast. When I came to prison, she still baked biscuits for me every Christmas. My mama died a few years ago, and I ain't had any homemade biscuits since then. Your wife's biscuits taste just like my mama's - God rest her soul, that woman never could bake a decent biscuit! They taste awful, but they remind me of my mama."

That's the sweetest insult I've ever had.
That's the sweetest thing!

Default Cordial Cherry Yak

As far as yaks are concerned this is my fav and my very own concoction; as long as you have access to all the ingredients. If not I have variations.

1 cherry vanilla or cherry Dr. Pepper
4 tbs. or lid or whatever of Instant coffee
1 pkg. of cocoa
1 pkg. cappuccino mix
1 carton of milk
3 or 4 sugar packets if you have it
chocolate pudding off a food tray or canteen if available

The way I made mine it tasted like you were drinking a chocolate covered cordial cherry.

I started out just making it whenever we had chocolate pudding for dessert. And would use:

1 carton of milk
chocolate pudding
3 spoons of instant coffee
cherry kool-aid packet from our food tray or canteen
a few sugar packets

This seems to be a popular recipe... He told about this on our most recent visit:

Ramen-Burrito-Type-Thing

1. Get a Ramen noodle package.
2. Crush up the noodles (make sure to crush them up really finely).
3. Add crushed chips, if available (Doritos are supposedly really good).
4. Add water into bag. Let sit for a few minutes until noodles are a noodle-like softness.
5. Add seasoning packet. Mush bag to mix.
6. Drain out as much water as you can. Squeeze the bag a small as it will go without squeezing the noodles out.
7. Wrap tightly in a towel.
8. Sit on said towel for a few minutes.
9. Unwrap towel, extricate noodle-burrito, and eat.

When I told him I actually tried making it, he cracked up laughing. XD I didn't have any fancy add-ins like Doritos, so I just made it with the seasoning packet. It tasted like.... Ramen noodles.... (hmm, imagine that). Kind of handy to be able to hold it instead of slurping it up in soup form.

Next time I need to crush up the noodles better, and I'll try to put in chips.

I wanted to share this.. I make this at times when I go visit with my hubby.. Its really good and it tastes yummy!!
VP Parmesan Chicken

1 cup of Roman Noodles
1 can V8 juice
2 cheese squeeze
1 packet steak sauce
1 big chicken sandwich
1 coffee cup ( gotta buy the instant coffee to get this )

Take the V8 juice and pour it into the cup of noodles .. Cook as you would if you were using water to cook it. about half the can save the other half.. you can add just a bit of water to cook it but not too much...
Take the 2 packets of cheeze and the 1 packet of steak sauce ( like A1) and mix it into your coffee cup at the rest of the V8 juice.. mix again..heat and
set a side with your cooked noodles
Take the chicken pattie off your chicken sandwichen and remove the white cheeze that comes on it.. you can either cut up the pattie before you heat it
or after.. I do it before.. Heat your chicken up
Then take an re heat your noodles and your mix
Take that and pour into a plate... Pour your chicken on top of noodles
place your cheese that you removed on top of that.. it should melt the cheese or at least make it soft..
Pour the mixture in the coffee cup on top of that...
There you have VP Chicken Parmesan...
This can feed about 4 people.. and its really good!!!
You can even hit the bun a bit and slice it into pieces and have bread with it!!!
IF they have salad in the bag you can add a salad as well..
Almost as good as being at home...
I use to tell all the inmates wives how to make this cause the inmates would see me making it and want to know how to make it...

Have to be creative when cooking in the VP hope yalll enjoy!!!

Blessings
Tina

VP Nachos

1 bag of Rice and Beans
1 bag of Chili
2 bags of Dorotias or Corn Chips ( we like the Fritos corn chips)
3 cheese packets
1 Ham Burger or Cheese Burger
1 pickle
2 hot sauce packets ( if the have )
Cook your first 2 items as normal
Take your chips and place on a plate
When your first 2 items are cooked put them in a bowl and mix them together.. or you can just layer them on top of the chips.. easier though just to mix..
Cut up your pickle in small chunks
Cook your hamburger patty... cut up into little pieces and throw your bun away.
Put hamburger on top.
Then your cheese packets and the cheese from the burger if any
then your pickle..

VP Nachos... timing is everything with this dish... making sure everything is hot and putting it all together..
you can even reheat everything when its on the plate.. but dont reheat the pickle save that for last.. we put the hot sauce packets on last if they have them... Its pretty good and fills you up..

Sweet and Sour Sauce Prison Style

1 Bag of Spicy Pork Rinds
1 bag of Cherry, or Fruit Punch Kool-Aid

Crush Pork Rinds into a power..

in a separate container mix a small amount of water with the kool-aid probably around 1/2 to 1/3 cup of water, mixing together

Pour liquid into pork rinds bag, adding hot water as needed to get the consistency desired.

Now you can make a oriental flavored ramen noodle, cut up and fry your sandwich meat and you have some sweet and sour noodles... Not as good as the real thing but can satisfy the craving for some Chinese food. At least it did for me.

I'm sure have a whole bag of pork rinds powered and mixed into a liquid is not the healthiest thing to pour over the already unhealthy top ramen, but it sure beats the prison food they serve there.

Hi Michele,

As for holiday food, I'm not sure I have anything that says holiday. One thing that is popular during the holiday season was people ordered Peppermints from the catalogs or commissary , they would crush them up and put them in their coffee, especially during the Christmas season.

We would usually eat pretty good around the holiday times, big spread with alot of people! Making burritos is always a favorite!

Default Two Ingredient Taffy... Yummy!!

First I would like to say those Coffee Creeker Women KNOW how to cook creatively! Things don't ever 'look' too good but amazingly enough, they ARE!

My favorite tho was ANY flavor of taffy!

SO simple:

Heat any flavor of kool-aid pre-sweetened drink mix w/water to a boil (we had microwave access)... then slowly add enough powdered creamer to make it "a glob" as you stir, stir, stir! Pour and spread out glob mixture onto plate or plastic bag (set over ice to cool down quicker if you're lucky to have ice access)... wait until still hot but cool enough -can take a bit- to quickly get it up off plate/plastic to 'stretch & knead' with CLEAN hands... voila! Taffy is born! *Some would add more sugar to drink mix but that would make it a little more grainy, harder and sweeter instead of the 'sweet-tart' taste! Either way was really yummy tho!
