More than halfway done and things are getting a little surreal, but I’ll tell you about that when I have something to link.
Today I ended up skipping the store because I had phone calls to deal with in the morning then decided that if I don’t get some work done I’m going to get fired from my job that I don’t have. So I went out and sequestered myself in an internet-free location instead and tried to work through some things.
For Meal One I had scrambled eggs with spinach (which would have been better with cheese and just a little bit of black pepper—if I thought of it, I would have added some of the leftover curry powder I have in the pantry, but alas, I didn’t think of it until after I was done eating) along with Jiffy biscuits with orange zest which was a fabulous addition. (Thanks again to fivecats for the good suggestion.)
The biscuits were mostly really good, but the Jiffy mix is really salty compared to the scratch biscuits I usually make. But since I haven’t had any processed foods in 16 days and I’m only about halfway through the six cents of salt I bought on Day One, I’m not going to get too worked up about excess sodium right now.
For dinner I was going to have spinach chicken soup with Jiffy corn muffins, but I didn’t make it to the store for the Jiffy mix, so I just had spinach chicken soup. It was quite good, and I’m always amazed at how much more filling a small amount of food is when you put it in the form of soup than if you were just to eat it on its own. The Mock Turtle was right on.
Today was the first day in a while I didn’t have any fruit (more because I couldn’t get to the store than because I didn’t have the money) and I missed it. But I think I’ll survive.
And I got a little bit of work done.
And tomorrow is a new day.
