When starting this project, I had originally planned on cooking breakfast and dinner everyday. On the first day, while buying ingredients for the spicy zucchini fettucine, I also went ahead and picked up ingredients for the blueberry oatmeal and tomato scrambled eggs recipes as well. However, after talking it over with my boyfriend, we realized that neither of us really eat breakfast, so the first couple of days we decided to skip the breakfast part. But yesterday I decided I might try something quick and simple. I decided to make a blueberry smoothie.
This recipe made 2 servings which came out costing $1.60 total or $0.80 per serving.
Overall it wasn't bad but I think adding a teaspoon of vanilla and riper blueberries will make it taste really good. I'll try that next time and see.
When we got off work, we sat down again and decided what to plan for dinner. I suggested that we do the tomato scrambled eggs since I already had the ingredients.
This brings the total cost of the whole meal to $4.12 or $2.06 per serving.
To get started, we decided to prepare the potatoes first. They were supposed to roast for at least an hour so we figured we could get them started, get some dished done, then start on the eggs when they were almost finished.
After quite awhile it was clear that the water wasn't going to boil off so we just drained out as much as we could and decided to add the eggs. We turned the temperature down to the medium setting but nothing was happening so we turned it all the way back up and the eggs finally started to cook.
We'll have to put our cooking on hold for a few days until we get back but I'm already looking forward to trying out some new recipes :)
