With a clean slate at the ready, I began my new organized life. I planned my meals for the week. Baby steps, you all, baby steps. The biggest problem is breakfast - I may get up before the crap of dawn (as Kay used to say) but that's my time to squeeze in knitting and other handcrafts. The advantage being that all the furred things are still sleeping. By the time I feed everyone inside and out, I barely have time to get myself reasonably presentable and out of the door.
I had gotten in the habit, briefly, of using make-ahead steel cut oats - but that, too, dropped by the wayside. It's back. Yesterday I:
Made soup - potato/lentil/greens
Made my favorite non-meat spaghetti sauce:
|Working my way through three years|
of canned tomatoes...
|From the Moosewood Low-Fat|
Made my favorite vegan peanut sauce.
Made five mornings of steel-cut oats.
I should be set until the next weekend. I did not get pics of the rest - there were too many distractions during the process.
The biggest distraction was Lovey's Christmas toy from one of her aunties. We were fighting over it. It was back-ordered, as they can't seem to make them fast enough.
|I take exception with the tie. We do NOT|
|Apparently the Cheetos/Doritos|
effect was working...
And, in case you are wondering, I did, indeed, jettison 365 things from my house last year. As a matter of fact, I exceeded that number by a few. I am in the (slow) process of cataloging them and will, at some point, put them on a separate page. In case any of you are having trouble falling asleep at night.
