Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap


Nov 28, 2010

This week we dive into the depths of a Big Lot's and find some real cheap eats. And by cheap, we have stuff for under $2 this week. On the extremely cheap side, we have Hangburger Helper Microwave Singles Cheeseburger Macaroni, followed by Taco Bell Santa Fe Style Beef Bowlz, and finally a NutraSystems Hearty Beef Stew. A grand total of $6 was spent on that part of the review. We also sample Annie Chun's Sesame Seaweed Snacks, Oregon Chai concentrate, and re-visit two past favorites. Along the way, we talk head cheese, read some listener emails, and get a rant on potatoes. 

Just another weekend in our kitchen, where we eat it so you don't have to.

I don't know if anyone else has weighed in on the seaweed *snacks* but I often eat them paired with rice. You can make a decent 'lazy sushi' if you add a *tiny* bit of rice vinegar, a couple of drops of sesame seed oil and a bit of soy sauce to the rice. Just pair it with canned tuna fish or leftover precooked protein.

Oh . . . oh god. You were right about the hamburger helper. It was . . . it . . . I've used up a whole box this week on fast lunches.

It's not _good_, but it is so _good_.
