Good Ideas

Mujadara. Rice, lentils, and caramelized onions. Flavored with cumin, maybe some chicken stock. Simple, cheap, easy, and most importantly, TASTY. Mediterranean Wraps on California Avenue in Palo Alto makes amazing mujadara, especially when it’s hot and they serve it with hummus and their pickled vegetables. It also works so well in large quantities that I’ve been eating it for the past week straight.

Someone else likes mujadara too. And likes to eat cheaply. I wish I had this idea first, but someone beat me to the punch. This blogger writes up recipes and strategies for eating on $2-3 per day. It’s brilliant, really, and I feel a true sense of companionship with this other struggling starving young professional.
