Long, hard day. Here, have a photo!
This is dinner: macaroni with homemade spaghetti sauce, cooked green beans, and a salad of tomatoes, avocados, red peppers, olive oil, salt, and balsamic vinegar.
It’s day 7 of our project, and we’re nowhere near running out of food. We are still shopping, but only for veggies and coffee. I am still eating out a lot; not sure when I became a person who can’t go a week without buying prepared food. Good to know about myself, though!
Breakfast was an apple and a slice of cheddar. I took a cellphone photo of it, but it didn’t turn out.
Lunch was an avocado sandwich, a cold artichoke dipped in homemade mayo, and a pear. Later, a bought snack: cheese fries and an iced tea.
I forgot to post the week’s menu plan, so I may as well do that:
Monday (pasta): see above
Tuesday (Mexican): If I’m up for it, I’ll make flour tortillas and have soft tacos. Otherwise, it’s Spanish rice again, with beans and veggies (I bought tomatoes and cilantro today).
Wednesday (Asian noodles): <a href=”http://serenecooking.livejournal.com/75623.html”>Peanut noodles</a> with tofu
Thursday (sandwiches): Veggie burgers with homemade buns
Friday (stir-fry): Stir-fry seitan and rice and veggies
Saturday (chickpea gravy): chickpea gravy and potatoes
Sunday (anything I want to make): fish and chips
