How do you eat for a week for $50? →
Great discussion thread on how to eat as cheaply as possible. I found a lot of great tips and recommend reading the entire thread, but most of what was said can be summed up in these points: Cook from scratch. Yes, it can be time-consuming and inconvenient, but it really is the cheapest, and sometimes healthiest, way to eat. Instead of buying jars of pasta sauce for $3.50, buy a can of peeled...

winter term has been CRAZY BUSY thus far. with a new work/school schedule and so many Climate Justice League engagements, I feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. don’t get me wrong, though - I loooooove everything that’s been going on in my life. I just don’t have time to cook anymore, which makes me sad. I’d bought a few bananas to...
campus food cart #3: chili dog, chips & drink - $4. no idea what the cart’s called, but I LIKE IT. http://yfrog.com/4gzewzj
FYI: if I’m ever late for a morning/early afternoon engagement, it’s b/c I took the time to eat breakfast. I’ll work on that in the future.
turned down lunch at @kingestate monday to volunteer instead. as a foodie I’m bummed, but it’s MLK day - you gotta do it right. #bethechange

an open letter to dough co.:
we need to talk. look…. this isn’t working for me anymore. I feel like we’re moving in different directions - you’re constantly raising your prices, and I’m trying to spend as little as possible. we’ve had some great times together (remember all those late-night visits to my place last year?), but I think it’s time we go our separate ways. quite frankly,...
cookies for a secret santa
my friends and I did a secret santa gift exchange this year, from which I received everything I’d wanted: a zester/grater, a stainless steel santoku knife and a powerful hand mixer. I first used them to make a recipe I’d seen before that I thought MY secret santa would’ve loved: lemon raspberry thumbprint cookies. I learned right away just how powerful my hand mixer was - the...
