Chinese Takeout Hack - Making Your $4.75 Go Further

This is the quickest, easiest, and cheapest meal to feed a crowd EVER.


Step One: Buy a HoHos Happy Combo, which is a ginormous box of lo mein, fried rice, and 3 entrees for about five bucks. Of course, if you don't live in Albuquerque, you can always substitute food from your favorite local Chinese restaurant.

On a quick side note, when did "ginormous" become an actual, spellchecker-approved word?

Step Two: Steam or boil whatever tasty vegetables you have lying around. I love to use carrots, cabbage, celery, and bean sprouts. Throw in some peanuts too!


Eew, these bean sprouts look like little bugs. They sure are tasty though!

Step Three: Mix everything together. Let the flavors mingle.

 
Look how healthy this is! Other than, you know, all that greasy Chinese food you're about to add to it.

Step Four: There is no step four. You're done! Wasn't that the simplest, most affordable meal for a crowd you've ever made?

 
Not exactly the most appetizing photo ever, but it tastes amazing. Come to think of it, I took this photo before reheating the Chinese food, which had been sitting in the fridge all afternoon. Why would I do that? And what on earth are those tiny dots scattered throughout the food??

Black pepper...I'm fairly certain.
