We are still making 95% of our meals and shopping less but we aren’t in the same place we were before since shopping has mostly returned to normal. I might update periodically and if things change more often but I can’t keep up with the daily posts now.
We picked my car up so we stopped and got sandwiches and ingredients for tomorrow’s dinner at the Italian store.
For dinner I made sesame soba noodles with tofu, cucumber and snow peas.
I did a lot of weaving but one warp broke! I have to wait for some special needles to arrive to try and fix it.
We watched Resident Alien on Peacock, we got a free six months with our internet provider.
For dinner I made a salad with the beets we smoked over the weekend and we had come chicken from Dominicks. We had to deal with the cars so we were beat!
For brunch Matt made pancakes. So good! He real has perfected pancakes during all this.
I made made crumble bars.
For dinner we smoked some lamb on the grill that I had bought frozen last year! It got done way faster than expected, maybe because it was very hot so that threw our meal plans off a bit. We ended up eating it cold with some stuffed grapes leaves and a tomato salad I made with mozzarella pearls, parsley and cucumber.
We drove out to Sykesville near their little historic Main Street to pick up a inkle loom from FB Marketplace and caught the tail end of a tiny parade (advertised as having 30 people plus floats) and someone getting a novelty sized check for $25,000 for fixing up historic main streets.
Then we stopped in this sandwich shop in the parking lot of a gas station and brought home sandwiches. To our surprise they were massive and they must make their own marble rye and Cuban bread. Who knew, weird little place??
And the loom lady gave me a big box of yarn, supplies and books to go with the barely used loom! Not bad for $50!
Then we got soft crabs and made them with some leftover beet mashed potatoes.
I made a little plum dessert
We watched more Candace Renoir on Acorn
For lunch I made couscous with sardines and veggies. It’s up on my Patreon for subscribers!
For dinner Matt had some sick food and I had some Chinese take out. I wasn’t planning on so many meals just for me! I was really low on food.
Working on a new cookbook proposal.
Matt still doesn’t feel great so I picked up some sick food for him at the store. I had some smoked salmon we had from Costco for dinner and popcorn. For lunch I had some noodles and the half of burger that was leftover from yesterday.
Did some weaving.
We made chicken burgers for dinner but Matt didn’t feel great so who knows what we are going to eat later in the week.
Matt went to an Italian market near his parents’ house and brought back some goodies!
We had two kinds of “stuffed bread” (stromboli?) and some stuffed peppers and olives.
Then for dinner we had some eggplant parm and Matt made sauce and spaghetti to go with.
Lots of cleaning and watched some City on the Hill on our 99¢ Prime Day sub.
Actually ate at a restaurant with a friend! I was invited to a PR lead brunch and got to try about some new sandwiches at Dashery.
They source things locally which was a big plus.
For dinner I had Taiwanese wide instant noodles with beet greens from the CSA and some frozen mixed seafood.
Matt came back from NYC with some goodies so we had a late night mozzarella and bread snack .
