The fancy in the simple!

Life is just a bit crazy right now. It seems like P and I are so busy that we’re eating very simple meals, especially in the evenings. After twelve hours at work, and an hour commute home on the bus- I was starving!
On the bus ride home I had the chance to catch up with a good friend. She lives in LA and is experiencing California unemployment at it’s absolute worst. Luckily she’s landed a great job; but is still 4 weeks behind in unemployment checks. I completely sympathize and feel for her right now. It sucks being broke, and choosing between groceries, or a tank of gas when you just started a new job, and need a way to get there. She told me eggs and oatmeal were all she had. Simple and healthy, but not exactly appealing. She’s a tough lady, and has money on the way. I offered to send some cash, and she politely declined.
This simple meal is absolutely inspired by our conversation this evening. It’s basically the staples that fill my fridge on a weekly basis that are both nutritious and delicious.
