SHORT CHECK IN... and then some more.
Monday, November 11, 2013
In the new house; no computer. Thumb-pecking on my Kindle is pretty laborious.
Challenge for today: Plan tomorrow's meals.
Mini Wheats w/banana & 2% milk
One bread Turkey sandwich with salad greens, milk, grapefruit
FOLLOW-UP! I did not follow the above menu, which is why I don't like to make them. What I did eat was fine and still in the program... just different. I don't think I'll ever be a good set-the-menu-ahead-and-then- follow-it-exactly person. I just love spontaneity too well. My daughter, on the other hand, has for years known exactly what she would cook for the following week. I really admire that, but if I try to impose it on myself... the rebellious dragon within rears its ugly head. On the other hand, I can cook for a week without following any recipe at all, and she can not. She's almost totally recipe driven.
Interesting, isn't it! Both of us are good cooks, and have things our families love to eat. I really think the difference may be that my husband does our grocery shopping and does not like specific ingredients that he has to look for. I tend to cook basic meals using herbs and spices and traditional cooking skills. My daughter does an admirable job of doing all their grocery shopping, staying on budget and using coupons.
I am home now; we have NOT moved to Missouri yet. Now comes the hard task of getting this house ready to sell and weeding through the unnecessary items we've accumulated the last 28 years in this house. Meanwhile, my DH and I have to finish working on the report he still has to do.
76° here yesterday. (It was 71° in Missouri). Had a great and short walk, trying to make sure I don't jump into too much exercise too soon after recovering from a cold and travel.
