A week from today we will begin moving into the new house. The process will probably take several days. I'm not sure exactly when we will get the computer hooked up.
Right now we are trying to eat up as many of the perishables as we can. I've already defrosted the deep freezer. Now I'm working on emptying the refrigerator. I told my daughter that we'll soon be like people of yesteryear, going to the market each morning to buy food for the day.
Tonight we're having barbequed chicken with artichoke hearts, salad, and parsnips.
I also have to plan for food for the first few days at the new house. Everyone tells me, "Eat out. You'll be too tired to cook." That may be true, but I don't usually get the amounts of vegetables I want from restaurants. There are exceptions, but the closest restaurants to the new house seem to be in the sandwich shop and barbecue style. It will be easy enough to get a salad, but I don't want to live on salad for several days. I think the thing to do is to pack as if we were going on vacation. We'll picnic on our back porch for breakfast and lunch, and have salad at a restaurant for dinner. I can be happy enough with canned vegetables and canned meats. It seems to me that it is going to be very important to stay with the Type O foods when I'm stressed.
