Forty Days of SNAP

Our family's Lenten food stamp challenge

Here’s an example of what we’re eating these days.

Actually, this is something I would have made even before our SNAP simulation, though my thoughts about it would have been: leftovers! Sweet! Rather than: this is a good way to get protein and fiber. We’ve reached the end of the month and funds for fruit are short. We ate our chicken, all but about 24 ounces of stock that is, and our pound of Italian sausage.

Anyway, today’s lunch was some 5-day-old brown rice (very chewy), scrambled with eggs and topped with a vinegary slaw of cabbage, cucumber, and carrot. A few drops each of soy sauce and Sriracha and there you are.

  1. Is coffee in your budget? I only ask because I remember at SOS one person taking left over coffee home.

    Do you get your March funds on March 1 or will you wait until the benefits show up on people’s cards? Congrats on better living with leftovers!
