Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times is a blog I follow. She is hosting a challenge to eat ONLY FROM HOME this week, from Monday through Friday. No grocery shopping. This is an exercise in prepping, in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Or other catastrophic event. DH and I will probably be fine with the challenge, except that I have guild on Wednesday and that includes supper catered by the church ladies. In all honesty though, in the event of a zombie apocalypse I would probably still go to guild. :-)
breakfast - oatmeal, as usual. I have enough oatmeal and raisins and walnuts to get me through several weeks of breakfast, so this is easy. Hmm. I may run out of milk before Friday.
lunch - yogurt & banana. We just went to Costco and I have a large 2-pak of yogurt which will last me a couple weeks. Bananas will run out on Tuesday, but I have cherries from our tree, frozen since last summer. They will make a dandy substitute.
supper - crock pot teriyaki chicken. This is a make-ahead freezer recipe. I took the premade mix out of the freezer on Sunday, leaving it in the fridge overnight, and put it in the crockpot all day Monday. Made a pot of rice to go with it. It will not win any award but it was totally edible. Recipe link HERE.
snacks & beverages - snacks today were boring. Carrots, sigh. Beverages were also pretty boring. Water, milk, and of course, my evening glass of wine. I have a good stock of wine downstairs that should get me through this challenge. ha ha ha, no surprise there!! I actually had TWO glasses. It was a bad thread day today, so at 5 o'clock I parked myself on the back patio with a glass and the Sudoku puzzle from Sunday. I have had no success with that one. Not one stinking number! I'll tackle it again tonight and hope a lightbulb goes off in my head.
Pretty - mauve & green
A motif in the plain setting squares & triangles, s.i.d. in the pieced blocks.
It's pretty on the back, too.
