(1) i don't cook.*
(2) i don't get 8 hours of sleep.
(3) i need to save money.
in examining the many aspects within this situation that are not ideal, i arrived at the notion that i maybe needed to nix the first one and, just for the very immediate right now, be a girl who cooks, if only in the throwing-things-in-a-pan sense. as an extreme money-saving, healthifying measure for the next month and also to slim down a pantry that's freaking filled with bags of beans.
in being a girl who "cooks" (and yes, scare quotes are vital), i've discovered this:
1 bag of lentils.
1 can fava beans.
1/2 a bag of frozen corn.
1/2 a bag of frozen edamame.
an entire bottle of organic salsa.
a shit-ton (approx 1 tbsp) of garlic.
a shit-ton (approx 3 tbsp) of cajun seasoning.
a shit-ton (approx 5-8 tbsp) of curry powder.
*except for men, which is a whole other issue we will not be going into at this time.
** admittedly, no one will ever want to kiss you, but damn, it is good.
