Brokeity ass broke.

So, the trip ended up costing me a wee bit more than I'd planned. I have a little wiggle room once my cell phone bill is paid, but not enough to go dropping mad cash at Whole Foods like I need to.

So, the Vegan MoFo theme until payday is: Eat What's in the House. Today's lunch: Smokey Acorn Squash Chili. Items used: one acorn squash, one onion, two cloves garlic, some leftover kidney beans, two chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (found that in the back of the cabinet), canned diced tomatoes, and some spices. A little agave and cinnamon made it interesting.

Another sucktastic picture. The breakroom isn't exactly a photo studio, what with the formica and fluorescent lights.

For tomorrow...something with that can of coconut milk lurking in the cabinet? Um, black mango tea? Uh...some Newman's Own Marinara? I guess it all depends on how the election turns out. I may just eat cereal for the next few days.

Being "Brokeity Ass Broke" is our 'theme' for MoFo! It's amazing what you can do with what you have on hand. I think your dish sounds pretty dang good!

Happy MoFo'ing!

Eat What's in the House is a great theme even though I guess it chose you rather than you chose it! That meal looks totally delicious and don't stress out about the lighting. I eat in the evenings and all my evening photos are dark - but this still does your meal justice 'cos it's making me hungry.
