this week has been
1-fried rice. a fave of mine, even when i'm not broke. so simple and good. cook some white rice and let cool (if you have leftover rice in fridge that works well) it's important for the rice to be cooled before starting. melt about 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup butter in a skillet, scramble one egg per cup of cooked rice. when the egg is cooked, add in the rice. stir in some soy sauce and salt. these are all ingredients that i usually have even when i have nothing. if you have meat or veggies you can add those but i personally like it plain.
2-cheese quesadillas. i always keep tortillas in the freezer, stock up on them when they are on sale. use cooking spray or butter in a skillet, sandwich shredded cheese b/t two tortillas and brown in skillet. makes a great snack! also, you can add meat or veggies if you like--chicken or ground beef, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes. good with sour cream and salsa.
3-mac n cheese. we USUALLY have a couple boxes of mac n cheese.....you can slice hot dogs or add cooked ground beef to turn it into more of a meal than a side dish.
OR you can do what i've been doing the past few days--eat pickles and cupcakes. those are two things that we ALWAYS have in the house lol.
