I’d been hacked.
To those of you who don’t play WoW, when your account gets hacked, it usually means all of the items you worked hard to acquire get sold for game gold, your game gold gets sold to idiots who buy it with real money, and occasionally your characters get transferred to another server, costing 15 dollars and a month of waiting to get them back. And usually, getting Blizzard (The game company) to restore your items usually takes about 3 hours on hold or 2 weeks waiting by email.
My characters, account, and items were restored in ten minutes. It was glorious. I am so thankful to Blizzard for resolving it so quickly.
After the flush of relief swam through me, the rest of my day went as planned. I made Vegan French Toast for breakfast, which I found at The Raw Cure, a blog that I happen to frequent.
It took me a few slices of bread before I got the temperature right, and I burned one to a crisp, but in the end I made a pretty tasty stack of French Toast:
I topped it with a little bit of earth balance and some blueberries
It was SO GOOD. I liked it better than regular French Toast by a LONG shot. I will definitely make this again!
- 2 bananas: $0.40
- 3/4 cup of soymilk: $0.26
- Cinnamon: included in spices deduction
- Earth Balance: $0.10
- Blueberries: $0.33
- 9 slices of bread: $0.40
For lunch, I took the cauliflower rice recipe found at Master of Her Romaine (another great blog) and tweaked it a little bit. I did everything the same, but added a little bit of curry, a diced tomato, and half a can of pinto beans right into the mix.
It was really good. Mom had a bite and she liked it too. I really liked Sonia’s creativity when inventing this dish so I thought I’d try it out too :) This made quite a bit of leftovers, as well!
- 1/2 of a head of cauliflower: $1.38
- 1 Tomato: $0.13
- 1/6 of my monster onion: $0.19
- 1/2 a can of pinto beans: $0.35
- various spices
I packed dinner to take to work, and that consisted of 2 slices of leftover French toast and 2 slices of cantaloupe.
- French Toast: included in breakfast
- Cantaloupe: estimated at $0.23
- Curried rice: In yesterday’s total
- Apple Juice: $0.33
Day Two’s Grand Total: $3.90
If that seems really high, think of all the leftovers I have!
Money left: $9.19
Its getting tight, but I think I can make it.
Have you ever ‘invented’ your own recipe? Was it good or a flop?
