Student Survival: Recipe: Speedy Beef Stroganoff

Egon Spengler: There’s something very important I forgot to tell you.
Peter Venkman: What?
Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Venkman: Why?
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I’m fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, “bad”?
Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Venkman: Right. That’s bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

That’s right, today I am going to completely disregard and flaunt the most important rule of Ghost busting. I am going to cross the streams! Unfortunately I don’t own a proton pack (I can imagine that I wouldn’t get anything done if i did have one…) so the streams that I’ll be crossing will be purely blog based. It’s time to mix student life with cooking, in an attempt to keep your diets fresh, your lifestyles healthy and your wallets full!

This meal is a personal favourite of mine as it is cheap, quick, simple and super tasty! It really fills you up and can be pretty warming on these sharp autumn evenings!
