So, even though the budget pretty much totally went out the window about 3 months ago, there is just one day left. Today. After today, this whole thing is over (kinda, sorta) and I go back to eating (kinda, sorta) like a normal person.
I don't know that I really learned anything. Well, ok, I'm lazy and don't like cooking for myself. That's kinda something. I also have way too much fun with flour. And I don't like being forced to totally change my eating habits so I can't have the two or three things I love.
I learned that I love more than just the cheap veggies. Ok, I knew that already. I learned how to do about 2 dozen new things with cheap veggies. I learned that I *can* live without avocados, but it really isn't fun. I learned that I like tofu because it's *easy*, as long as I don't have to make it. I learned that almond milk gets sweet when you cook it, but if you leave it cold/ raw it can work in just about anything.
I found just about every cheap place to buy food in all of Charleston. I still have food (I've ben cheating and eating "other" people's food). I don't think I've actually eaten *real* food all weekend. Last night I crawled out of my hotel cave and got some fries...
Oh, yeah, I *love* potatoes, but not enough to pay more than 50 or 60 cents a pound for them most of the time.
Now, I'm gonna go eat my ($2.48) chocolate bar and do some work. Anything you want to know?
