No more pot luck dinners for me! I should have eaten before going and taken some deflect, but I was too busy making a salad. I ended up so hungry that I ate too many avoids at the dinner. I don't know which ones got me, but they got me good. It took me 3 hours to get to sleep last night, as I was achy, gassy, itchy, and restless. Drat! And I've got a busy day today.
I think I'll make and freeze some homemade compliant TV dinners to take with me from now on. I'll get some of those sectioned plates with lids, like ziplock or gladware, that type, and just grab one out of the freezer and throw it in the car on my way out. Frozen is better than full-of-avoids. Meat, rice, veggies...just basic little meals. That will be my goal for this week...to put those together. I'm the only O and hate cooking for one, so I'll cook for 8, and freeze the other 7
I did meet my goal for last week, that was planting some herbs and starting some herb seeds. That was a fun goal, and I'm excited to see them grow, and more excited to eat them.
I just made a makeshift lunch with no meat in the fridge. I scrambled 2 eggs, added one 15 oz can of salmon, then put the 'scramble' on top of lettuce, with lemon juice sprinkled on top (saving half of the salmon for later). It was pretty good, and very satisfying ... a better lunch than I expected to have when I trudged into the kitchen!
