You have a microwave and a refrigerator so you must not be poor:


Never mind the lack of food, dishes, or flatware.

The flatware was liberated from a take out place by taking more pieces than I immediately needed:


I splurged at Walgreens discount aisle for my fine dinnerware:


The dollar store had some food items and cookware. Note on the cookware the instructions say the lid is not microwave safe so I'm assuming the bowl/casserole itself is microwave safe:


Poverty Frittatta:

Two eggs
1/4 cup milk, half and half or cream
1/4 cup shredded cheese
Two pieces of ham lunch meat broken up
Shake of salt and pepper

Put cheese, ham and salt and pepper in your microwave safe bowl:


Stir together:


Now you find your kitchen lacking bowls and whisks, among other things. Using a wide mouth bottle you can make a stirring device.


Froth the eggs in the jar and then add cream and shake again:


Pour the egg mixture onto the ham and cheese:


Microwave for three to five minutes until the eggs are dry looking, you can take them out and let them sit for a few moments to allow them to finish cooking:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
