Today was a big day. I cooked something that is an actual recipe. (I didn’t use an actual recipe, but there are actual recipes for this dish.)
I made curried eggs over rice—hardboiled eggs heated with tomato sauce and curry powder. It was probably not the most elaborate version ever made, but given the circumstances, it was pretty good.
For the other meal of the day I had leftover corn muffins and wheat berry/cabbage/split pea stew. The corn muffins don’t hold up as well into the next day as scratch cornbread—and they still taste crazy sweet—but they’ll do. And there’s still more of both the muffins and the wheat berry stew, so I think corn muffins and stew will be on the menu for tomorrow as well.
My little holder with receipts is missing so until it turns up, you’re going to have to take my word on what I spent today. (Now that’s a litttle fishy, isn’t it?) I drove to a meeting and stopped on my way to pick things up, and it must be in the car but I couldn’t find it in the dark. (There’s no overhead light in my car and it’s really hard to find things in a car without an overhead light.) Will look again tomorrow.
Here’s what I spent:
8oz tomato sauce (SuperTarget): $0.24
1tsp curry powder (Whole Foods): $0.10
1 head of garlic (Compare): $0.15
1 tangerine (Compare): $0.20
sales tax: $.01
Okay, found the receipts.
