Peanut butter and JELLY time!

My sincere apologies....
last Friday's blog may have falsely depicted a lifestyle that I'm currently not leading.
Even though this past weekend I could also be seen seamlessly weaving in and out of various social circles... it was all cost effective, I promise you. I can't be affected by the cost of anything these days because I HAVE NO MONEY. Feel me?
I'm just apparently really good at making it all seem so GLAMOROUS!
So allow me to share the GLAM recipes that your resident starving artist has concocted in a pinch.

Mexi-CAN Get a Job Eggs
2 poached egg
3 tsp of salsa
handful of any crackers.

Lay eggs on bed of crackers and drizzle salsa...easy!

Fallin' behind (on the bills) French Toast
 2 slices of bread. Any kind you can afford. Toasted.
 2 eggs
 1 apple
 1 tablespoon of Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate Powder
 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
 1 1/2 tablespoon of honey
  a dash of vanilla extract
 2 teaspoons of maple syrup

Prepare the French Toast as  you were taught... ( I'm not Rachel Ray... I'm not teaching you how to do it BTW)
Cut a medium size apple into small wedges
Place in bowl, add honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract
Pop in the microwave for two minutes.
Meanwhile, Plate your toast, drizzle your maple syrup and evenly sprinkle the chocolate powder. 
Then top with the apples once they are ready.

Jelly- is-BROKE Sandwiches
2 slices of bread. Any kind you can afford. Toasted. 
1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter
1 tsp. of Sunflower Seed butter ( for an extra kick of creaminess and a multi- faceted "nuttiness")
2 tsp. of any jelly or preserve you can afford.
1 tsp. of Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate Powder.

Spread both butters on one slice
Spread jelly on the other
Sprinkle Swiss Miss on both faces
Sandwich together and....
YEY! yumminess!

TOO-POOR For Albacore Tuna Sandwich!
2 slices of bread. Any kind you can afford. Toasted
1 can of chunk light tuna 
(you can use solid white albacore, but if you can afford it, then you're too rich to eat this sandwich.)
1 1/2 tablespoon of Bothouse Farms Yogurt Ranch dressing (Half the fat of regular Ranch and more flavorful in my opinion.)
Dash of Sea Salt
Dash of fresh cracked pepper.
1 garlic clove ( pressed)
1/2 tsp. of dijon mustard.
Mix all in a bowl, then make a sandwich.

As you can see these are all easy and can be made with things you have around the kitchen.
Hope you are amused, and now hungry...
I have to run- I think I'm going to try to sell my recipes to NYU kids and the wives of Wall Street brokers.
Till then... 

Viva la Vida
