Yesterday morning as soon as Vince realized I appeared to be back to normal, he said “I think we’re out of bread!” No, dear . . not really. There was a loaf of storebought sliced bread in the fridge that I got with my last grocery delivery because I wasn’t sure when I’d feel like making bread again, but he was hoping for homemade bread.
Also, I had taken ground meat out of the freezer a couple of nights before and put it in the fridge to defrost. I was hungry for meat loaf and we both love meatloaf sandwiches. I had checked the meat Wednesday morning and it was still frozen but I figured yesterday morning it was completely defrosted so as soon as the cakes were made, I stirred up a bowl of bread dough and made the meat loaf.
That’s done. We both had meatloaf sandwiches last night. Yum!
Our CSA bag had lots of cucumbers this past weekend. I had been eating cucumbers and tomatoes, along with mozzarella cheese every day. For some reason, that was something I wanted even when I didn’t feel great. Vince asked me to make the cucumber spread so I grated up several cucumbers last night. I wrapped it all up in a bunch of paper towels, put it in a zipper bag and left it in the fridge overnight so I’ll make that into cucumber spread this morning and we’ll probably have cucumber sandwiches tonight.
Cooking isn’t back to normal but I’m doing more than a was a few days ago. So far, we haven’t starved. Keeping Addie fed was the challenge. She’s a good eater and isn’t terribly picky. She’s home with her parents for a few days so that gives me a break from having to think of what she might eat. Vince and I can generally find something, even if it’s a bowl of cereal but with Addie, I feel like I need to give her something halfway nutritious to eat.
