Day 30 Yea! 900 Meals Down -1800 To Go
Honestly, this is a catch twenty two. I am exhausted from a few extra tasks being added to our daily existence - like making yogurt, substituting eggs and blogging at midnight. At the same time I am exhilarated to find new freedom at learning how to modify recipes or cook new dishes like the Alfredo. I suppose exhaustion is expected of any learning curve. It is hard to integrate new material but once you've learned, it is a new survival skill that makes life much easier, and decreases anxieties and stress.
Breakfast: Scones with our usual Bread recipe. We ground 25 pounds of white wheat. I won't have to grind wheat for he next batch of bread. That helps decrease the mess and confusion if the grinder only has to make noise once every two weeks. Sides were canned fruit, Cherry Flavored Yogurt Malt
Lunch: Tuna sandwiches
3:00 Snack: Sharp Cheddar Cheese, celery sticks with peanut butter, leftover scones and mint frozen yogurt.
Dinner: Lemon Dill Chicken with Penne Pasta Delicious. This is made with cream, lemon juice, and dill; with sauteed celery, onions; and cubed, fried chicken breasts with spices of choice like garlic. It is mixed altogether and served over Penne pasta. (Canned milk could be substituted for the cream.) Tasty. Cabbage, Ramen noodle and almond salad; Lemon Jelly Roll Cake and Chocolate Jelly Roll Cake filled with mint frozen yogurt. We are not drinking milk at meals and often guzzle a glass of water instead. It is an interesting phenomena that the water is so satisfying that desserts and seconds that were tempting minutes before are not at all appealing after a big drink of water.
