Hey, What’s Up Hello!

This is my space to share one of my favorite past times…eating. There will be fun food stories and photos to salivate over. So grab a chair and stay a while.

FMS TRUE STORIES: That Time I Didn't Have Gas...

FMS TRUE STORIES: That Time I Didn't Have Gas...

No. Not that kind of gas.  My apt didn't have gas for nearly two weeks. For most of the time that I've lived in my apartment, I've heard some sort of ticking. The ticking that you hear when you turn your burners on, only, I would be sleep or just loafing.  I had enough. I called our city's gas/electric company Coned and told them so that they could come over and fix the problem.  What they did instead is cut the gas off. Yay for a cheaper bill next month but boo for the struggle meals that commenced.  Well not that much of a struggle but it could have very well been since I had limited eating options.

Now, if you find yourself in the same situation I was in, you're in luck because I didn't starve and neither will you.  I am on a budget so eating out every day was not an option.  I went to the store and purchased things that were easy and could be heated up in my toaster oven (I don't own a microwave).  I went to whole foods and picked up a whole chicken w/ sides.  And let me just say, that roasted chicken from Whole Foods is everything.  I ate off of that chicken for almost a week.  I also had a bag of shredded cabbage and carrots from Trader Joes that were on the verge of going bad so I made a vegan coleslaw.  I put the cabbage and carrots in a large mixing bowl, seasoned with sea salt, cayenne and black pepper, garlic powder and the 21 Season Salute (my favorite) I also roasted some cauliflower in the toaster oven.  I was experimenting and it worked out.  That was lunch for a couple of days. Being resourceful is one of my better gifts.  And knowing how to cook will always be a blessing.  I mean I could have lived off of peanut butter and jelly but I'm watching my carb/sugar intake so there's that.
