For anyone keeping track, on Friday I spent twenty dollars of my thirty dollar food budget at Winco, leaving me with ten dollars for produce. I found personal watermelons on sale for $.99 each so I had to buy two, and I also found buckwheat noodles on sale for $.99 as well. I couldn't resist that price, and I am seeing a cold noodle salad for dinner tonight!
I had some leftover Basmati rice and a slab of tofu that needed to be used so I made fried rice for dinner! Curry fried rice with tofu, green peas,and scallions. Because the rice was already cooked, this dish came together in like ten minutes.
This is not budget or zero waste friendly, but I read about this new vegan mousse from So Delicious awhile ago and kind of forgot about it until I watched a review on YouTube. The reviewer said it was almost like frozen whipped cream. She also said it came out soft and whipped right out of the freezer!
I found it on sale and I'm sorry but I had to splurge. I had the extra couple of bucks so I went for it. It is AMAZING. It really is almost as light as cocowhip, It doesn't have protein powder or artificial sweeteners. I don't care if this has one or one million calories, the texture is so amazing it is worth the splurge if you're on a budget!!!
