Here, I decided to list off a menu of tasty goodies for those all night mudding/computer game playing freaks out there, who are about as broke as I am. Well, right now I am about $150 in debt, at least, and I have a month left of school to try and survive. So here we go with a listing of things to eat/drink that will keep you.. well, technically alive. Main Dishes: Ramen Noodles. Any way you slice it, this is the.... well, basically cheapest way to survive. However, if you live in a dorm like mine, sterilyzing the water beforehand is a good idea. Trust me. My towels smell like people rubbed their feet all over them. And its not because i do that, but its due to the rancid water (i have no idea how that is possible) here in Garcia Hall... Ramen Noodles, however tasty, eventually get a bit bland after having about 60 cups of the same flavor. (They are sold in packs of 12 at Wal*Mart: The Evil Empire for only 1.30 or so) So here's some types of ways to prepare Ramen to spice up your really boring night life: Taco Bell Ramen: Take one package of ramen, put it in your container, and add in 3 packets of Taco Bell Hot Sauce. It doesnt really make it 'hot', but it gives it a spicier flavor and tastes.. well.. ok if you are broke. Onion Ramen: Buy some onions from somewhere, and slice them into teeny tiny little bits, and dump them into the ramen. They will soften up and actually add some decent flavor to them. Ok, Another source of.. food is potatoes. They are typically very cheap, and can provide many meals if you are broke. Fjant helped me truely appreciate them. Some different toppings, if you have some money to spare, that are good are: Pace Picante Sauce, Tostito's Cheese Dip - my personal favorite. And the ever present, steal from the student union, butter salt and pepper. Taco Bell Bean Burritos. I dont care what you have to say, when you are tired of everything else, stock up on some of these and heat when hungry. im sure it would be cheaper to make your own.. but that takes effort.. and time.. and who wants to do that? My newest addition... RICE! Yes, extremely cheap and very easy to prepare. A bag of about 4 meals of rice is like 93 cents. Just remember to ALWAYS buy (or take free packets of stuff) to use as topings.. plain rice is just.. no. Here's a few varieties i have found.. Mustardly Rice = Rice, with mustard. Sound interesting? Well yes it is interesting...... very...... interesting. Sugar/Cinnamon Rice = With a right combination of sugar, cinnamon and butter a small tasty desert can be concocted for very cheap. Pretty tasty. Mexican Rice = Taco Bell Hot Sauce + rice can come out to be a "flavorful and culturally enhancing experience". Yumyumyum. Rice with stuff = add stuff to rice to get a mix of rice n stuff Kelthang's Tuna Surprise = add a bunch of rice and tuna and spices and crap. Its really gross though. We all know kelthang has no taste. So like, skip backwards and use those. DRINKS! Kool-Aid. Cheap, efficient, and easy to get. However, its much cheaper to buy the tiny packets and some sugar than the kind with sugar. It takes a little more effort, but in the end its great. If you get really broke, add in less of the tiny packet and more sugar to even out the taste. Just brush your teeth a LITTLE extra, because it will eat through enamel quite fast. Wal*Mart: The Evil Empire's Free and Clear. Its like 50-60 cents for a 1 liter bottle. Many flavors, and quite tasty when chilled to a very cold temperature. Tea: I know tea isnt exactly everyone's favorite drink, but for like 2 bucks i got a pack of 100 tea bags from the grocery store across the street. You can make iced tea, or hot tea and just add sugar. VERY simple, and easily efficient Pepsi: It costs more, but its well worth the effort. Two liter bottles are the cheapest way to get it, cans may look like a deal, but they really arent. However, to the true pepsi lover like myself, check the dates on cans and make sure that the freshness is still intact. Any cans that are currently not blue will NOT taste good. Most likely if you get cans from a place that is overstocked, it will also be out of date. SNACKS! Ok, everyone needs SOMETHING to munch on late at night, and if you are low on cash here's some good tips on stuff to get that will keep you on the level. The "After Halloween" candy sales. Here is where you get all the candy you need for the next semester and a half. I have a bag of dumdum lollypops from last halloween, and its still half full. 150 lollypops for 2 bucks. quite a deal. Just make sure and dont underjudge what you will need. Overstocking is the key. Except on chocolate. That can actually go bad. Zekk's Spicy Nacho Doritos. I personally cant stand them, but Zekk loves them like crazy. But they are expensive. Do not buy them. DO NOT BUY! Well, ill continue to add my foodscrapping secrets here as often as i can. Enjoy for now!
