I realized Thursday as I was getting my dinner ready that I had not been out of the house in two days except to put the trash our or go to the recycling bin to make a deposit. I did go out into the back yard to take a few photos, but otherwise that’s it. I am…A Sorting Machine!
It’s hard to explain exactly what this project entails, but let me just say that we have a lot of “stuff” which needs to be sorted through, then determination needs to be made what to do with it, then if we’re keeping it, it needs to be packed, if we’re not keeping it, do we try to sell it or give it away. That’s a lot of determining to be done, but I’m up for the challenge. I’ve made quite a dent in it since I started last Thursday. I intend to keep denting and keep sorting! Stick with me!
Fairly early on Thursday I decided to get myself something to eat. I decided this because I think I waited until around 1pm to eat on Wednesday. I have to get back on track with three meals a day. It will keep me from thinking about snacks, especially the kind that Ralph likes to bring into the house.
So breakfast was…
Honeycrisp and Almond Butter. Thanks to those of you who explained to me that I’m supposed to mix the oil INTO the nut butter. I still made a mess, but I did it. First time for almond butter and it was very tasty. I don’t think it tastes as distinctive as sunflower butter, but still very yummy.
I’m running out of fun ways to display the apple and nut butter. I’ll have to keep trying or find some new dish options! This is actually the fun part to me, setting up the food. When we get to New Mexico, there will be more opportunities for fun food displays. Hopefully by then I’ll have a better camera too!
Worked all throughout the day. I stopped for some cottage cheese and sweet relish, but forgot to photograph it. I should keep that in the fridge more often, it’s very satisfying and good for me. Put it on the List!
Dinner was another quick and easy without much thinking involved.
Crock pot pinto beans, pre-made bulgur, frozen corn and store-bought salsa.
The bulgur was warmed up in the microwave with a little garlic powder sprinkled on top. The salsa, corn and beans were heated together on the stove.
Topped with the last of the pecorino romano cheese. Boy do I need to go Shopping!! It was really delicious and kept me full without snacks all night.
I have been on track all week, so I’m hoping for a good result at Weight Watchers on Saturday. Of course, after the meeting on Saturday we have the second of our two October weddings. Then on Sunday we have TWO birthday parties…neither one is mine…
I got a few lovely Fall photos today. The Fall colors always seem to stand out when it’s been raining.
I am enjoying Fall so much this year. I do miss seeing all of the trees along the highway as I drove to work, but not enough to have to deal with the commute again. I can just take a ride if I want to see trees. We’ll get a lot of chances this weekend.
I haven’t really slept all night, so I think I’m going to head back there to see if I can get a little shut-eye. I need my rest if I want to remain…A Sorting Machine!
