Collage Cooking episode 1

by | Jun 24, 2019

I’m single, frugal, short on time, and fundamentally lazy. For dinner every night I do what I call Collage Cooking. It’s not hard. You just take things and put them together and then eat it. I was thinking I could to do a podcast but then I’d have to learn how to do video (see point number 4 above), so I’m going to take very few photos and put them at the bottom and tell you what I did. Let’s go!

Southwest Cheesy Beans and Vegetables

Collage Cooking: 6:11pm. Eating: 6:25pm*

– 1/2 cup black beans from a can, rinsed and drained

– 1 slice medium cheddar cheese

– 1 cup Green Giant Cauliflower Medley (the one with the scallions. Why should I have to buy a bunch of scallions and chop them up? I only need like a tablespoon. I’d have most of the bunch leftover and then they’d rot in the fridge and I’d be pissed)

– 1/4 cup Salsa (again, why should I have to chop up tomatoes and onions and garlic when someone already did?)

sprinkle: Salt, Ground Cumin, Garlic Powder

Put it all in a bowl and nuke it for 75 seconds. Serve with nice glass of water and cornbread leftover from last week.

* the fourteen minutes includes me setting up the glamour shots of the food and getting/returning the ingredients from/to the fridge

all the ingredients, except the spices b/c I didn’t know what I’d use at first

should have just eaten out of the bowl but it looked so pretty

This is my cat. She eats tuna every night so it’s not really photoworthy. The food, that is.

She’s ALWAYS photoworthy
