veggies

The simplicity of these 5 vegetables gives the term Victory Garden a whole new meaning! Grow one in your yard and never buy vegetables again! Or save time and effort because these vitamin packed plants are dirt cheap, generally ranging from $0.50 to $2 in price.Victory Garden

  • Onions
  • Mushroom
  • Mini Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Tomato

Go to your local grocery store, farmers market, Trader Joes, whatever, and buy one of each of the above! Your total will be under $5 and you will chop them up and throw them in a frying pan with a blob of oil and a dash of salt and pepper. They will heat and caramelize, and you will eat them once the colors are vibrant and the onions are the same consistency as a worm. This entire process should take no longer than 10-20 minutes, depending on preference and speed of chopping.

These 5 ingredients mixed together make enough to serve 2-3 people, or serves just you for 2-3 days!

Grilling is Easy

Labor day just passed, but I’m still going to wear white.

I’m also still going to use my grill! SCREW THE RULES!!

I’ve been grilling all summer, on and off. It’s so easy, and it brings people together. You could say the same about cooking anything – anywhere. But since the grill is outside, makes everything smell amazing, and reminds people of happy times, I am going to continue endorsing grilling as my favorite method of cooking.

Here is an assortment of instagram photos I have taken while grilling this summer.

The beauty of grilling is the ability to be as creative or plain as you want – and (as long as it isn’t too burned) it tastes great!

some of my favorite things to grill include:

  • onions
  • corn (husk or no husk)
  • pineapple
  • peaches
  • meat (duh.)

My only additional advice is: Salt and pepper goes a long way, and serve anything with a cold beer. Cheers!
