Ghetto Kitchen

I’m an unmarried working professional. I love to go out, eat healthy but not spend my paycheck on it. This IS possible. My credentials are maintaining the same weight for 12 years through exams, break-ups, deadlines, lay-offs and weddings. So let me share some of my dirty ghetto cooking tips as I perfect them.

Pro Cooking Tip 1: Though shalt not waste

See the assortment of meat and veggies in my picture. I had no idea I was having that for dinner till I opened the fridge. I go to a store and pick healthy good food that looks good to me. I rotate, sure. That night, it looked like I would have to use the meat and chip away on the veggies before they spoil. I even asked my roommate if he had veggies that would spoil soon.

Lamb chops – Seasoned only with Trader Joe’s lemon pepper, red meat’s best friend
Onion – Sour cream (past expiry but not not smelly or moldy, just watery)
Red Snapper – Sour cream and chopped garlic
Mushrooms – Sour cream and Thyme

I grilled the above for 25 minutes and ate out of the tray. The tray is elegant. Its not like eating out of a pan. Boom dinner is done!
