Boo Cafeteria Lunch

College is tough, not just academically but as you know it can be seriously tough financially as well. One place where college students tend to spend a lot of money is food. Face it, we love to eat out, we love our chipotle and delivery pizza, but you’re looking at about $10 a person for either of these options. Then there’s the cafeteria, somehow professors love it, I say eww. I’ve got a few cool, delicious, and super cheap recipe ideas to hit you with. Try them and let us know what you think.

1. Mom’s tomato Mac – serves 4 for less than 2 dollars!!

Ingredients:

- 1 Box Macaroni noodles

- 1 Can, Diced tomatoes

- Sugar, salt, pepper

Boil the macaroni until it is tender to your liking then a teaspoon of sugar, salt and pepper. Stir, and then add the diced tomatoes. Simmer for about 1 min, cool and serve.

2. Totino’s Pepperoni Chicken Pizza

I know what you’re thinking… It can’t be done, Well it can be. Heres the recipe.

Ingredients:

- 1 Totino’s Pepperoni Pizza

- ½ pack of Chicken Flavored Ramen noodles

Just cook your pizza in the oven and crumble up the dry noodles. When the pizza is complete add the noodles and ½ of the ramen chicken seasoning packet. Bam! The Totino’s Pepperoni Chicken Pizza.

3. The Seanwich

Yeah, I invented this one. When I was 8. It stuck with me until college and thankfully so, it super cheap and easy.

Ingredients:

- 2 slices of your favorite bread

- 1 slice American cheese

- 1 Banana

- Peanut butter

- Jelly

Toast the bread and add peanut butter and jelly. Next, add the cheese to the peanut butter side. Slice up the banana and add it to the jelly side. Sandwich the two together and cut in half. Serve with your favorite Doritos.

Dont be a Music Pirate

The Downloading Disaster – Ways to Avoid it

Not only is downloading music ILLEGAL, but it can also be harmful to your computer. When I say downloading I’m not referring to programs like iTunes or Rhapsody, we’re talking about illegal file sharing. According to the Institute for Policy Innovation, global music piracy causes $12.5 billion dollars of economic losses every year, the loss of 71,060 U.S. jobs, and $422 million dollars in lost tax revenue. With these facts behind them and the partnerships with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), schools across the world are cracking down on downloaders. I’m here to offer you a few resources to stay safe, legal, and maybe even expand your music base.

  1. Pandora Radio – My personal favorite. This service is completely free, all you have to do is go to Pandora.com and set up an account. You pick a song or artist and using their innovative Music Genome Project they play a streaming radio feed just for you. You can also provide feedback for each song that will allow even greater customization of your Pandora radio channel. There is occasionally a 15 or 20 second commercial but its awesome. They also have an app for the iPhone and Blackberry devices.
  2. Grooveshark – This service is relatively new to the music world, its like a combination of Twitter, iTunes, and Pandora. It allows you to use a feature similar to Pandora radio, but it also let you choose individual songs and create your own playlist. Once you have created this list you can save it, making it searchable on the site, this way you can share your favorite playlists with your friends. This is not yet available in an app form, but you can play it from your computer.

One of the trade-offs that come with this type of music service is that it wont allow you to have these songs on your mp3 player like iTunes or Rhapsody but it is cheaper and safer. With Pandora and Grooveshark you will never have to download a thing so it’s super safe.
