Today it’s been 11 days since we went out to get groceries. I think I mentioned on here that I was almost out of carrots and Vince was on his last container of cream.
Yesterday morning he had been over to the shop fridge and he came back in and said he found two more containers of cream. They were hidden behind something. He opened a fresh one yesterday and has two more. I doubt that lasts us til this is over but we do have a few small cans of evaporated milk he said he would use in his coffee.
I was almost out of carrots. While re-arranging things in the sewing room fridge to make room for the yogurt strainer, I thought . . look in the crisper drawer. There were two more two pound bags of carrots. Why did we have six pounds of carrots 10 days ago? Vince said he had made pickled carrots and bought a couple of bags to make more and never did.
Now that we have carrots and cream, we’re good for at least another 10 days . . I hope, though I’m afraid we’re going to need to stay in our “cocoon” for way more than another 10 days.
The biggest problem for me with the food is seeing recipes online. I want to make everything I see and I either don’t have all the ingredients or I don’t want to use what I have here . . in case it’s a long time before I can get more.
I know some people are still getting take out food, going to the grocery store for either in store shopping or curbside pickup, or even having groceries delivered. I had thought we’d maybe do a curbside pickup this week or next week but with the virus here in our town, I think we’ll just keep on making do with what we have here.
