Cleaning out the fridge

Still preparing for the Food Stamp Budget project by eating random stuff from the fridge. Today was Quinoa with milk and maple syrup - super yummy for breakfast!

Quick greek salad for lunch: (Almonds not beans)

Dinner - Chocolate ricotta stuff.

It's got a creamy cakey texture. I really like it. I have to give the Southbeach Diet credit for this recipe though. I changed it a little, instead of a packet of fake sweetener I use a packet of Raw sugar, tablespoon of cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp of vanilla with about 1/2 cup ricotta cheese (not their suggested measurements either). It is crucial that you mix the sugar (or Equal) with the cocoa then add the vanilla to make a paste, then mash it all up with the ricotta or it just doesn't work right. Nobody likes a dry ball of cocoa powder on a spoon!

And a bowl of Corn Chex - yeah, boring.
Total today? $3.25
