The best 10 minute veggies and rice!

It's pretty good.

Brown rice.
It's pretty good for you.
- It tastes pretty bad.

They taste REALLY good.
They're really good for you too!

Put em together and they balance out.... For sure. 

A friend of a friend told me.

White rice+vegetables = a happy stomach and/or life. (this may be untrue)

This is the type of meal that I make when my boyfriend and his bestie have been playing a certain computer game (D3 4 LYFE YALL) for approx 26 days straight. I kid you not.

The first ingredient you will need is rice.

I add sesame seeds to the rice, before the vegies, as a little surprise for myself!

The second is Beyonce's Schoolin Life. 
'this is for them twenty somethings,
time really moves fast - you were just sixteen'

Amen sister.

Although, I didn't have my first heels til I was AT LEAST 16. 
13? Oh choo cray!
I am also great at writing physical love letters..


The veggies!

oooh steamy!

Basically. Chop em up. 

I like mine big and chunky (that's what she said) 

Muffin likes his fine and thin (thats what he said) HAHAHA.

Whatever you may like - go for it. 

(this is the order I add them to the pan)

10 min veggies and rice
1 T oil
1/2 cup broccoli florets
4 mushrooms, chopped roughly
1 small onion, chopped roughly
1 small carrot, sliced thickly
1/2 cup eggplant, chopped roughly
1/4 cup zucchini, chopped roughly
4 green beans, chopped (4 - no more, no less!)
1 stick (stalk?) celery, sliced thickly 
3 cloves garlic, chopped roughly 
1 t finely sliced birdseye chili

2 t maggi seasoning (yes, this is essentially liquid MSG) 
2 T soy sauce
2 t thai sweet chili sauce 
1 t sriracha
1/2 t MSG (optional... I mean, don't add it if you're a pansy who only eats bland food. JOKES!)

1 T toasted sesame seeds
1 spring onion, sliced finely

K, go!
Heat oil in pan.
Add veggies. Season with s&p.
Fry on high heat, tossing often.
Once softened, add sauces.
Toss and keep over heat for 2 more minutes.
Serve over rice, garnish with sesame seeds and spring onion.

oh oh! Guess who has toothpaste blue hair? 
It's Katy Perry! 
Oh.... no no, that's me, silly! 

psst, a sneak unedited peak at my toesies and sugar pot and food scraps!  haha.

Hungry hungry hippo.

Forgive me Bloggers, for I have sinned.
It has been 3 weeks since my last post.

It's not that I lack inspiration, it's that I completely and entirely lack funds!

For lunch yesterday I had steamed cauliflower, nori, cucumber and vinegar - AS A MEAL.
Dinner was roast carrots and potatoes!

I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and say that these meals don't make for entertaining reading!

If you were to look in my wallet you would find, about 7 trillion receipts (why do I keep these?!) .. and $40.
Until next Friday, when I get paid...

YEP. $5/day until then!

My list of things I would love to create is growing:
pumpkin gnocchi

Hmm.. apparently anything containing carbohydrates!

So hold on to your horses, don't lose me now.. Just you wait...

Just you wait, I tells ya! 

Today I leave you with a photo of my beautiful sisters wedding, she's 4 years older than me and yet about 1 foot shorter! Bahaha. I'm the blondey along side her <3

It was an absolutely beautiful wedding, and at the end of the day, I'm thankful to be highly in debt right now, just because I got to see her get married in Australia!
