Guess what, dear readers. I made it. I am walking into work right now with a packed lunch, and four dollars in my pocket. That means, in a mere 7 hours, I will be walking around with my first, and beautiful paycheck.
There is a bunch I am going to reflect on and muse about, but for now, let’s just have a quick glimpse of my last I-have-no-money-what-can-I-throw-together lunch.
How did this creation happen? Well after working up an appetite from grading about 8 classes worth of essays, I emptied my entire refrigerator onto a cutting board, chopped it all up, and threw in the liquids and spices that were at my disposal. These things happened to be a butt-end of a zucchini, a half of a pumpkin, an onion, some garlic, a pinch of bean sprouts, water, soy sauce, and a scoop of peanut butter.
So who wouldn’t think immediately to: spicy peanut butter sauce sautee? I didn’t until I almost hit my peanut butter into the garbage on accident. Thanks to that coicedence, that last scoop of pb is now warmed and mixed with soy sauce in my lunch.
