I thought I had this great idea for a blog: Bachelor Budget Meals! But then this happened: http://www.thebachelorguy.com/bachelor-on-a-budget-5-meals-for-5-bucks.html
And this: http://artofmanliness.com/2010/08/17/meals-for-the-bachelor-5-simple-one-skillet-recipes/
So now I’m just like, “Okay. Not original, but at least better.” And also, just a straight up meal blog would be lame, so I’m going to put on a different hat each time and be prolific about it. I say that now, anyway.
Bachelor Budget Meals!
Installment 1: Chicken Tacos
Backstory: I cook a week’s worth of chicken every Sunday. This allows me to be versatile with what I make on a nightly basis and I don’t have to wait for stuff to cook. Also, it’s just cost-efficient. So when I got into my hood this evening I popped into the local produce shop and grabbed an avocado and black beans. I already had the tortillas and red stuff.
1. Black beans
2. A fresh avocado
3. Pre-cooked chicken
4. Corn tortillas
5. Salt, pepper, lemon juice
Estimated cost: 4 sizable tacos for ~$6 (ballparkin’ it)
Time: like 15 minutes.
DIfficulty: Subjective. How hard is it to cut an avocado or heat up everything else?
Verdict: Delicious! And sort of healthy: omega 3 abundance.
Pairing: I ate some mixed greens, downed a fresh grapefruit juice, and then sipped on some green tea with lemon. These aren’t typical to my meals unless I’m fresh off a hangover, which I was today. Big time.
