Vegan macaroni and cheese

Image
  I was expecting to have a meal kit delivery from vegano foods but there was a delivery problem. This leaves me with no groceries or meal plan for the week. I decided it is time to use some of the ingredients I have in my apartment.  I had a box of daiya alfredo I used the sauce a long time ago and never used the brown rice pasta. I have a few types of vegan cheese so perfect to try vegan Mac and cheese.  This is the first time I have tried Sproud plant milk it’s pea based and thick so I thought it would be good for the sauce. Step one was adding melt vegan butter to the pan. Then around one cup of milk. Then spices I used curry powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper. I added a tablespoon of vegan sour cream to help thicken the sauce. After incorporating added half a cup each of vegan Parmesan, vegan cheddar, vegan mozzarella.  It melted well but it was salty. I added more milk, spices, and some water to fix the taste.  I had coated some of the pasta in olive oil, curry powder, nutritio

2017 Goal Reached Earned $1000 CDN from the internet and $1375 Goal for 2018

I am so excited that I actually accomplished this goal I have some previous posts on what apps and sites I used. As promised in the last post here is the breakdown on how I earned it.


Total                                        $2017

Amazon mturk $413.81
focus groups $225.00
Swagbucks $105.00
field agent 98.25
EVA 62
prolific 42.05
ipsos isay 10
pinecone 42
shoppers army 31.5
Total $1,029.61

I actually earned a little more but I lost $15 with Qricket. I am no longer a VIP member so I expect I will be able to earn something with Qricket in 2018. I am not stopping here the goal for 2018 is $1375. 

To be clear not all of this is cash some of it is in gift cards so here is the breakdown on how I chose to convert the earnings. 

Mturk - amazon.com credits converted to Whole Foods and Starbucks gift cards
Focus Groups - Were paid in cash
Swagbucks - Starbucks gift cards
EVA - paid by cheque
Prolific - paid by paypal
Ipsos I say - Starbucks gift cards
Pinecone - paid by paypal
Shoppers army - paid by cheque

I keep thinking about why I met this goal this year if you read this blog you know that I have been trying for three years. The reason is I could see results which kept me motivated. If something no longer worked I could change to something else. The reason I did much better with Mturk than last year is I joined a facebook group that is amazing and supportive. Keep working at your goals, finding new ways to achieve them and joining communities with the same goals one day you will achieve them. 

The tentative plan for 2018 with knowing that everything on the internet can change in a few weeks and the way to meet the goal may have to change.

Mturk - $750 CDN - this is possible if things stay at the current rate I am at $20 USD a week now
Prolific -$200 CDN - I joined in November and made $42 at a slow time of year
Swagbucks -$150 CDN - there is more potential in Swagbucks than I use 
Field Agent - $150 - the last half of 2017 was slow hopefully will get better again
Pinecone - $50 - There wasn't much work in 2017 
Other - $75 - I expect that I may not make the mturk goal and will have to supplement with other work so I am setting this low but know that there is a buffer in here. 

Goal for 2018 is $1375 Canadian Dollars
