It happens to most people from time to time: you haven't had the cash to go grocery shopping in weeks, and all that's left in your cupboard is half a pack of saltines and some envelopes of unflavored gelatin. Just keep digging, you're bound to find something in there.
You ran out of bread long ago, so you can't even make proper toast. But, ah-ha, you do have a leftover package of hot dog buns. Toast, or eat as is, with some packets of mustard and relish from the junk drawer.
The broke food classic, ramen can actually be pretty tasty if you dress it up. If you have any sad-looking veggies in your crisper, or-super lucky-an egg, you can have at least part of a decent meal on your hands. Eat with chopsticks to feel fancy.
Deep in the dark recesses of the cupboard, you spot a slightly dusty, slightly cobweb-laden blue box. This is it: the holy grail of cheesy goodness. Of course, you ran out of milk and butter long ago, but you're not going to let that stop you; just whip it up with some water. No regrets.
Not the sugary instant powder that tastes like maple syrup and sunshine. I mean straight-up OATS. Look in the cupboard: see that cylinder-shaped box with an Amish dude on it? I know you thought it was just for decoration, but I swear you can actually turn it into food. You just need some water and salt.
I guarantee you have rice. Somewhere. Check the garage. If there are bugs in it, just rinse it out a few times. Add sriracha, soy sauce packets, or mayo.
really enjoyed this list...TVP is nasty! lol H5
I enjoy eating hotdogs and ramen noodles even when I have a little change. H5
very creative list - h5
TVP is textured vegetable protein. It comes dried in little chunks and you rehydrate it with water or broth when you want to use it. It has a long shelf life and is great for emergency supply kits. It's really high in protein and, when seasoned, looks and tastes a lot like ground beef. :) It's awesome. ^^
OK, I have to ask. What is TVP?
Funny, and true. Great list. :)
lol. Love this list. Very good.
great list ! I lived off minute rice and soya sauce in college :) I like ramen noodles there are different kinds so i just call them "Chinese noodles" -- my son loves them too ! You should make a list just about those - best kinds :D
A funny list, and no, with these you will not starve!
