Hey I was wondering if you have any Lenten recipes for a broke college kid? I'm really tired of the ramen or beans and rice schtick every year.
First, I didn’t know this until this year, but there is a big difference in taste in lentils. Red lentils turn to mush, and you might think that’s bad until you realize how well they’ll blend into tomato sauce and add some much needed protein. Eggplant can also replace noodles in some dishes, and can be a nice change of pace.
Brown lentils taste like the dirt from whence they came and should be avoided.
Green lentils, however, can be good. A very simple/quick meal is some lentils with whatever spice you like. Cumin is good, just some salt and pepper, chile flakes, etc. We do a drizzle of olive oil too, we don’t give up oil.
I don’t know how expensive it is, but for my money the best meat substitute is seitan. Doesn’t taste much like meat, which I think is good, but it also gives you something to chew, which is really one of the things I miss most.
That’s just my starter ideas to remind me and make sure I check back later. My wife does most of our cooking and budget, so she’ll know. She’s out right now though, so this will serve as a reminder to me to check with her. Are you one of those like my Godbrother who can just eat the same thing day after day, or are you like me and your stomach will rebel if you eat the same thing three days in a row?
the thing is all the sensates in the cluster on Sense8 have skills. imagine a cluster full of mediocre people. Jerry is good at changing tires. Hana makes a mean ramen. I think Catalina can juggle? that’s it. they don’t do shit. they just have Netflix marathons. sometimes Raoul does Jessie’s english homework for them.
Sakura Uzumaki Weekend: Day 2 ↳A Home for Two ⇨ AU, Only weeks into their new home, the couple quickly settle, sharing moments and smiles between the two, the only downside was Sakura grew tired of Ramen for dinner and knew she had to change that quickly.
Black bean, zucchini and quinoa tacos for dinner tonight.
Fact: Necessity is the mother of invention. I just discovered that if you put your quinoa in a coffee filter first, put that in a bowl and fill that with water, you save yourself so much aggravation trying to strain it.
I feel accomplished.
Now if I could only be that clever when it comes to homework…
Stiles let out an unintentional yelp when Derek surprised him with a tight hug as they reached each other in the middle the airport arrivals section and it only took one raised eyebrow and Derek’s crossed arms for Stiles to explain with a wince, “Scott bet me fifty bucks I wouldn’t pierce my bellybutton and I was tired of ramen.”
“I made an unwritten list of foods I’m tired of eating. Ramen noddles, pizza, ramen noddles, frozen dinners, ramen fucking noodles.–Please tell me, you have suggestions on something easy that I can make within ten minutes and doesn’t cost too much.”
