When I was little I imagined that $75 of groceries would look like so much more than this. In these bags are the recipes to three meals to feed me this week: marinara spinach orzo, sesame ginger tofu with broccoli and egg quesadillas and some milk and cafe bustelo. That’s it.
It’s a tradition in my family to make tamales every Christmas Eve but since it’s so time-consuming sometimes we don’t. This year we did (and by we I mean my dad did) but we started a bit late it didn’t end up being ready for dinner. This is what usually happens. So usually you have to fend for your self for Christmas Eve dinner and look in the fridge and see what you can whip up. This year I made avocado toast. When the tamales were finally ready on Christmas Day they were everything I dreamed they’d be and more and well worth the wait.
Only because sushi is never cheap. But I’ve gotten in habit of getting sushi for lunch at work. My job is so boring and so repetitive getting this delicious colorful ($20) meal that makes me feel healthy is usually the highlight of my work day. Sushi is so beautiful, i want to learn how to make it one day.
Fully dunked my first dumpling in that orange sauce and almost cried because it turned out to be very intense mustard …but this was a dreamy meal after that
