Didn’t make the hash, will today. Made cheese soup which was yummy but expensive, used 1 lb of cheddar
Delivered produce to a friend I don’t see often enough, we had a good, long chat. I stayed masked and that was fine with her. Hurrah!
Then went to the discount store and bought various pantry foods. I went for jam, didn’t buy any of that, but I bought chia seeds, vinegar, quinoa, etc. all shelf stable stuff.
Then I took a short drive on the way home, came home, cleaned the incoming groceries.
I will finish up the garlic salt and sauteed onions I started before I left. Also roast the veggies I meant to yesterday.
The toasted veggies and some rice or quinoa or millet or ? will be tonight’s dinner.
DH and I were talking about pizza over the weekend. This is a tomato week. I could take the quart of tomatoes, add a slug of Italian herbs, and some parm, and make pizza for dinner. Wouldn’t be tonight. Haven’t decided. My ancient, twitchy tummy has decided that it hates all commercial pizza these days. Even white ones, which I used to be able to eat, sigh. Actually, it has decided that it hates almost all prefab foods, which means I either have to cook ahead or just cook almost every night.
Ah well, it’s better than being up all night and in pain!
There are reasons, other than financial, I started getting bulk produce. Being up/down all night and in agony makes time spent in the kitchen much easier to deal with.
I always said I didn’t want to do cooking marathons. I still feel that way. But it’s necessary, so I do it anyway!
DH said he’d rather have steamed potatoes with the cheese soup as a sauce for dinner, so that’s what we’re having!
The salt is ready to bottle. The apples/cider is cooking down, slowly to apple butter or sauce or whatever you want to call it. I always called it apple butter, but kept being corrected because I don’t add anything to it, so it was apple sauce not butter. WHATEVER!
So, the potatoes are steaming away, the apple ___ is simmering, and the garlic salt is settling. The dishwasher is going. The laundry (rags) is out of the dryer.
To do? Make the bed, set the table. Serve/eat dinner. Then other kitchen clean up.
