Culinary Delights, Session 2

A busy week at work, followed by a re-nu on my kitchen with paint and more paint (the competition of more paint on us than on the ceiling or wall).  Reward?  What’s for dinner?  Must Goes!  One slice of bread (carb control), smear some of my proclaimed”food of the gods” (yes, the guacamole I spoke of in my last session) across the bread, which I have cut in half for better handling.  A couple of slices of Easter’s ham, and a wedge of Swiss cheese on the side.  Yes I could have put the cheese in between the bread too, but I chose this route.  Ah I have forgotten one thing, a drizzle of homemade (yes, homemade) mustard that is creamy, to my delight.  And yes, I should’ve taken a picture, but I didn’t know it would taste that good!  I must admit, that guacamole made the difference in this sandwich.  And a half sandwich was all that was necessary. Mmmmm


God Ordained…Lunch Room Culinary Delights

Avocado + garlic + a few more spices (unknown but appreciated by my tongue) = guacamole.  Definitely has to be “a food of the gods!”  If not, it should be!

The Shopping List

Must haves:  

  • Bread
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Bar soap

Probably a good idea to have:

  • Leafy greens
  • Fruit!

What I’ll probably do:

  • Start with list 1.  
  • Think about list 2.  (List 2 requires effort on my part, doing something besides making the sandwich.)

Thus, the life of the single person goes.  And limited income.  And trying to be frugal, despite lack of wisdom.  For example:  it’s so much easier to buy a pint of lo mein and eat off it for 3 days than to cook daily.  And it’s only $4!  I do think this is why some seniors end up with poor nutrition.  No desire to mess up a kitchen for one!

This morning I can hold my head up though.  Farm fresh eggs from farmers market, combined with onion (sautéed, never raw!), mozzerella and freshly grated Parmesan (which no lactose laden home should be without), topped with salsa!  However, off to the store I go…
