Gross Things I Resort to Eating When I'm Poor

My Mum, who is cooler than anybody you've ever met or will meet, reads this blog. For her sake, I am going to try to avoid making this sort of post a habit. She worries! (PS. Love you Mumma! Xoxoxoxo).

Okay, disclaimer over, now here's some stuff I ate earlier this month when I had less money than I currently have. Contact me if you want the full recipes for these meals, which require no more than two steps to prepare, and much desperation to actually ingest.

SPLIT PEA "SOUP"

I know what you're thinking: "Becky, a lot of soups come out of the can that way." Sure, but do a lot of soups stay that way once they're out of the can? I took this photo after this gelatinous cylinder had been cooking for five minutes. This is the closest my life has come to being an RL Stine novel since my hamster became some kind of slime zombie in grade school.

WATERY BEANS ON SPINACH TORTILLA:

I don't think I need to elaborate on this one.

I am leaving my job in September, so more of these easy-to-make, hard-to-swallow, unemployment-appropriate monstrosities are to come!
