Budget Tofu

So, I have just discovered the wonderful world of budgeting. In fact, I made myself a budget using Gail Vaz-Oxlade's Interactive Budget Worksheet Excel spreadsheet, which you can find over here. As a result, I'm back to trying to cut back in the kitchen again, which means inventing weird meals out of stuff that I already have that I didn't even think constituted a meal.

However, I've also not been sleeping well, and I was awake until 3 am on Sunday, so when Jay came over last night I was just waking from a 1.5-hour nap and unable to do anything useful. Luckily he takes direction well, so I instructed him on what to put together. In one pot: a can of lentils and a leftover half can of diced tomatoes. Plus hot sauce and pepper, Jay's idea. In a pan: firm tofu, seared ("make sure it's really seared") with an old bottle of Diana's steak sauce that I have had forever. Then I remembered I had frozen green beans and corn, so we threw some of that into the mix.

Once again, this is one of those meals that is "actually not bad!". We ate it while watching Drive, which was actually really bad. This is better.

Also: dessert --->

  1. I watched that movie in theatres. It was so weird, the theme music? The lack of background info on the characters? The ending? What the hell were we supposed to think at the end of the movie right?
