Hobo Soup

Note to Future Self:

Today, I made hobo soup. It sounds a lot worse than it tastes (which is pretty yummy, if I do say so myself), it's nutritious and it's cheap as fuck to make. All you need is:

1 onion 
3-4 cloves garlic
3 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 lb potatoes
1 lb ground beef (but pork is cheaper)
1 can red beans
1 can crushed tomatoes
Oxo cubes
Salt, pepper, Italian herb blend (or whatever you've got on hand. Get creative, bitch)

In a big-ass soup pot, brown meat. Sweat mirepoix. Dump in remaining ingredients with enough water to cover the veg. Cook that shit for an hour, eat like a boss for days.

Total: $15.81
Number of servings: Infinite (seriously, I'm pretty sure this shit regenerates its self nightly...)

It blows to be broke all the time (trust me, I know), but you're a smart cookie. You know you will always have every  thing you need, if not every thing you want. You're always good for paying rent and bills (not always on time), so kudos to you. So as long as you have $15, you can feed yourself for a week. 

Remember, you will not be a broke-ass joke forever. This too shall pass.

PS: Future self? Go easy on the canned tomatoes next time. You know they give you heartburn...
