The Poor Couple Has Big News!

It’s been a bit of a slow year here at PCFG, and a few of you may be wondering why our posts have tapered off in the past year or so. Well, to start off, we’d like to apologize to our fans who may be missing our more regular posting schedule. We swear we have a good excuse though!

Originally, we had moved into a new apartment together at the beginning of this year, and figured by Summertime we’d be back into the swing of posting things. Unfortunately that didn’t quite happen. After a handful of financial crises (including an emergency new car purchase), we were finally able to put the hectic past 7 months behind us. That brings us to our big news!

The Poor Couple got engaged!

So yes, in other words, the Poor Couple will now be even poorer! We joke of course, since this is a happy time, but as you can imagine, getting engaged this Summer was obviously a big distraction from posting as well. Fortunately, we’re starting to get back on our feet and back closer to a more regular posting schedule. If all goes well, we should be able to at least get a few posts up per month like we used to (though we can’t promise this, since as everyone knows, wedding planning is a lot of work)! That aside, we may even be able to write up a few articles on doing some wedding planning on the cheap!

Thanks again to all our persistent fans! We’ll make sure to keep you all in the loop with fun new recipes, Pizza Lab experiments, and cooking tips as we always have. Stay tuned!

Sorry For The Lack of Posts! Erik and Meg Are Moving!

Many of you are probably wondering what happened to PCFG, since we’ve slowed down on our post production lately.  Our usual schedule of 1-3 posts per week has gradually calmed down to the halt it’s at right now, but not without reason!
Both Meg and myself are in the midst of moving to a new apartment! And in true Poor Couple fashion, our new digs will be at the affordable Art Space artist lofts in Patchogue, NY.

While for the time being we’ve been slacking on our posts, we still plan on keeping our promise of delivering a new Pizza Lab to you every month. So while you may only see a couple sporadic posts here and there, Pizza Labs will continue to enrich your life on its usual monthly basis.

We apologize to all our fans whom may be looking forward to our other articles, but fret not; we plan on returning to our regular posting schedule starting in January! Starting then, you can look forward to more Cheat Codes, Food 101s, even more Pizza Labs, newer content in our Musings section, and possibly even the return of Midnight Snack as well as a couple new videos! Thanks again for following PCFG, and until the next time, keep on cookin’!

PCFG Is Off For A Week! Sorry For No Posts!

As you can see, no new posts on PCFG this week unfortunately! Our deepest apologies if you were really looking forward to one. We’re still working on the site’s next relaunch, pending a super srsbiz meeting between Meg and I. Don’t sweat it though, Summer is right around the corner! And with summertime comes our awesome, mid-year posting schedule which includes both a new recipe and a Smoothie Sunday post every single week!

Until then, we leave you with the following question: is this a picture of one of our butts?

Dough butt.

A Merry Christmas From Poor Couple’s Food Guide!

From myself and Meg here at PCFG, we wish all our fans a Merry… no, we wish you a MIGHTY Christmas! This beautiful day happens but once a year, so enjoy it best as you can, whether you’re with family or friends or traveling or even if you have to work. Celebrate Jesus Christ’s awesome birthday party by making merry and taking in all the delicious foods of the season. If you’re Jewish, get some delicious Chinese food instead! And if you’re neither, well then just keep on keepin’ on!

We’ll resume our normal posting schedule sometime after New Year’s. In the mean time, we’ll at least be putting up a new Pizza Lab post, so look forward to that. But remember, today is but the first day of Christmas, among twelve! We hope you enjoy your Christmas vacation as much as we do, and look forward to getting some new projects going in 2016. Until then, have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hannukah, a Cool Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year!

Big Plans Happening For Poor Couple’s Food Guide

Some of you may have noticed that Meg and myself have been posting a bit less than usual lately. Recipe of the week has kinda become more of a bi-weekly occurrence, and our Food 101 posts have also slowed down. Yet at the same time views have been going up, and that makes us feel a bit guilty. Well, we’d like to take this post as an opportunity to explain some of what’s been going on lately.

Here's a picture of Kobe.

People close to us are probably aware that Meg A. is currently in the home stretch of her graduate program at Parson’s New School For Design, and thus preparing for her Master’s final examination. Anyone of you whom is in or has gone to grad school can attest to the absurd amounts of studying involved in this, so you can see why this would limit one’s ability to partake in blogging.
At the same time, I’ve been hard at work with a few things myself. On top of some professional certification classes to take care of, I’ve also been hard at work finishing production on an album for my electronic music side project Gentleman.BOSS the past month or so. So suffice to say, the two of us have been busy.

But! This post isn’t all bad news. Fortunately, come mid April, we’ll both be freed up once again and ready to bring back our regular posting schedule of three posts per week. Besides that, we’ve got some big updates taking place as well! As you may have noticed, as of today, PCFG now has its own Twitter, so those of you not on Facebook can still follow our updates, and keep up to date on various mundane details we deem Tweet-worthy! Additionally, you can all look forward to us creating our very own Youtube channel this Spring as well.

So as you can see, things may be slow now, but give it a few weeks and there’ll be even more ways to keep up with Poor Couple’s Food Guide and learn awesome ways to keep cooking while on a budget! We hope you’re as excited as we are! If there’s any questions or requests anyone has, feel free to let us know! Stay hungry!
