My daughter is enjoying the self-directed pace of being at home, though some days she’s more on top of her assignments then others.
Today she baked homemade banana bread and that turned out scrumptious.
I suggested she break down the cardboard as it is recycling night and use that activity for gym credit. She’s cleaning the whole mud room!
AND she hung the laundry!
Later she’s promised me a game of Scrabble and another episode of The Waltons.
Today was hard—one of those days where I thought I had all my ducks in a row only to be asked why the sheep were still out to pasture.
A goofy image, but how I feel.
The teenager and I have been eating well. My neighbor has been sharing some of her Hungryroot deliveries. If she doesn’t like it, she sends it to my house.
That’s how I discovered that I like polenta.
So this weekend, I made spaghetti with Hungryroot’s Spicy Thai peanut sauce and sautéed fresh radishes and frozen stir fry vegetables in sesame oil and Bragg’s liquid aminos.
For breakfast that morning we’d had scrambled eggs in homemade crepes with turkey bacon, Gouda and a pickle.
Today for breakfast, the teenager had the last of the Thai peanut sauce and bacon on a bagel.
For lunch today we had leftover spaghetti, vegetable dumplings and Green Giant Steamfresh superfood edamame mix. So yummy.
Dinner was salad with sesame dressing and Hungryroot lemongrass tofu.
And yesterday the teenager baked me the most amazing dark chocolate cookies with dark chocolate chips and piles of fresh coconut.
My dear friend and traveling companion M got to meet Nala over FaceTime today and commented how she was more cuddly and quiet than he expected.
She’s been very tired lately, but she’s been waking often in the night.
And for one last burst of cheer, here’s a pile of kittens:
And the teen and I did some taste-testing:
