My stomach has compartments. I don’t like my food to touch. Especially fruits, vegetables and Jell-O. I don’t want a piece of cake on my dinner plate either…I have lots of dishes. Sometimes when we are out for supper and cake is offered without a new clean plate I lay my dinner napkin on my plate and put the cake there… I know …sick isn’t it?
Her at home I serve up separate bowls of vegetables and fruit for each of us. I would never serve a salad without bowls. I like a few dried cherries on my lettuce …Far Guy doesn’t …he likes sunflower seeds, almonds and a bit of sliced cheese. We both like leaf lettuce, we rarely buy head lettuce.
We had some left over chili. I asked Far Guy if he wanted to join me in a bowl of chili with potatoes and carrots…you mix it all together and throw it in the oven whilst you have a nap! He wanted plain chili…alrighty then…plain is what you get. Chance thought my version was delicious. I am not sure what that concoction is called…Hobo Chili maybe. I haven’t made it in a long time….maybe I was just hungry for cooked carrots!
At the beginning of the week I make menus for the week before grocery shopping. We don’t stray too far away from the plan.
Menu ideas are on the fridge….speaking of the fridge…Mr. Fixit was out again…a connection behind the freezer became unconnected. Not on the outside either ..it was deep in the freezer behind a panel. Mr. Fixit says it happens…a part gets moisture ( probably from the last time he tore the fridge apart) and then the frost pushes the connection apart. I will be going into the local appliance store with the measurements for a new fridge and pick out exactly what I want…three strikes and you are out or you get a new fridge.
We really need some new menu ideas. We seem to be in a loop that we repeat every fourteen days. Do you have any favorite recipes to share?
About noon everyday the same question is asked “What do you want for supper?”
