Ahhh! Hi! I haven’t been doing many things like I wanna be doing but whatever! HERE IS A BEAUTIFUL PIZZA! I used packaged dough flour and added olive oil and bacon bits, let it rest for 5 minutes and then topped it with black pepper, tahini, a spot of spaghetti sauce, white onions, cashews and tomatoes. it was suuuper yummy and sent me to have delicious dreams last night
quick stir fry type thing:
yella squash, jasmine rice, soy sauce, parsley, S&P, a lil EVOO,
i started out putting the squash in there because it would take the longest, then went with the rice, etc. i think this would have also been delish with some red onions diced in it. play it by ear depending on how well you like yr squash and rice done.
i just had a tooth pulled so i am jonesing after some cooking and am reminiscing on good foods i’ve made in the past few months.
it’s somewhat difficult to eat what you want when yr on a budget, but i guess i make it work most times. my room mates and i go grocery shopping every week mostly. sometimes we skip a week, but i normally spend about 30-40$, on myself, for food. this includes fresh veggies, fruits, grains, nuts, etc. i normally don’t purchase junk food, sodas, or meat. i will eat meat when someone else is cooking or purchasing it, or on the occasion that my room mates and i go out to dinner. it’s sometimes sort of difficult to figure out where to start when you wanna stop purchasing convenience foods but i guess you also gotta be brave with things. y’know?
BLACK BEAN BURGERS:
1 can refried black beans (I found mine in the international aisle at the market), 2 slices crumbled up spelt bread (if you can’t find spelt, then just use regular bread crumbies), 1/2 c. flour, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, spices to yr liking (i used some cilantro and S&P),
umm then i guess you wanna make em into patty shapes, put em in a skillet of EVOO and keep em in there until you can comfortably flip em over. i think on about 6 or 7 heat i kept em on each side for about 10 minutes a piece.
these ARE able to be frozen and heated back up. just wrap em up in plastic wrap and put em in the freezer. mine have been in there for about 2 weeks. it takes less than 10 minutes to pop em in the skillet with some EVOO and go to town on em! i like to put mine on warmly steamed bagels B)
the potato coins are pretty self explanatory, as is the curry ketchup (ketchup + a buku ton of curry powder)
