Monica is…trying to eat recession friendly.

grilled chicken

When you live around here, markets have the shittiest variety of veggies & poor meat. I have a Food4Less across the street & I never go there. (Food4Less is a market in LA that sucks ass, medicine, baby formula, & liquor are in cages) It’s pretty horrible & if your in there chances are the person paying right in front has a 400z beer, reeks of cigarettes & talking to themselves. I hate dealing with this shit, so I often drive pretty far to find yummy things to make for dinner. Sadly there is no fresh farmers market here. Although sometimes, I don’t have the energy to sit in traffic & I find myself snagging goods in the most unlikely places. Tonight’s dinner was pretty much supplied from the 99cent store & a small yet efficient min-market by my house. Yep, those pretty asparagus & fresh zucchini, a deal at just a buck each.  Grilled chicken, soft jasmine rice, oven roasted veggies topped with parmesan cheese. So you see kids, there’s lots of cheap, healthy things to eat around here, if you look hard enough.
