A Challenge - Eating From Home & A Pretty Spring Quilt

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.
