Photo of the Day: Homemade Sushi


Making your own sushi is really easy. Maybe I should write a post about it- it’s way cheaper than going out for sushi, you can put whatever you want in the rolls, and did I mention that it’s super easy?!

Grocery Shopping Revisited


Last time we talked about groceries, I told you my couponing tricks of the trade. Strangely enough, I’ve completely abandoned couponing. I’m just too busy to take the time to hunt around, and I found myself falling into the trap of buying unhealthy things and buying things I don’t need.

But cheap groceries without couponing is still possible! Here is an example of what I buy each week and how much it costs.

The total for these groceries was $23. And this is what I got…

  • organic spinach
  • celery
  • baby carrots
  • 4 sweet potatoes (small)
  • 3 apples
  • cucumber
  • 2 packages of sliced mushrooms
  • a loaf of freshly baked bread
  • small log of goat cheese + honey
  • frozen butternut squash ravioli (SO GOOD OMG)
  • 3 pork chops

With the lunch meat I had leftover from Target, this food definitely lasted me a week. I even still have the ravioli left to eat tonight! You can see that I am still buying food that I think is good for me to eat (less Cheetos, more mushrooms) but not spending an insane amount of money.

Unfortunately, my budget for the week got a bit…derailed by my fear of the impending winter storm that Oklahoma got. I went and bought extra food for the weekend for me and my roommate. Oops.

In a future post, I will try and provide you guys with an example of my meal plan!

Lemon Pancakes (Minus the Poppyseeds)


I’ve been getting bored with my food routine lately, so I did some Pinterest and blog research to find some new recipes. These lemon pancakes were made for brunch one day, and they were so light and refreshing. Probably a result of all the Greek yogurt I put in them. I should buy stock in Fage.

I adapted the recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod because I was too poor to buy the $4 jar of poppyseeds. To make it less overwhelmingly lemony, I topped them with Crofter’s raspberry jam, powdered sugar and MORE plain Greek yogurt. Didn’t even notice the lack of syrup!
