Scavenging

I am back home again after my weekend adventure that involved bread baking, coconut layer cake making, lots of eating, and a little skiing (to counteract all that eating).

So good, so fun, so needed.

But today had to be productive. There were chapters to edit and hopefully mail before the end of the day. I was left to scavenge in the kitchen, making meals out of nothing, hoping to stay satisfied.

Breakfast was oatmeal with dried fruit, milk, and maple agave syrup.
Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly smoothie -- a.k.a. plain yogurt, frozen mixed fruit, and peanut butter. Inventive, huh?
There was a grapefruit and granola bar to see me through my mid- afternoon slump.
And jelly beans, don't forget the jelly beans.
Dinner (defrosting as we speak) will be frozen homemade soup, crackers, cream cheese, and olives.

It was a fun experiment but a trip to the store is in order. And my stomach growls when I think of the good leftovers still stocking the fridge at my mom's house.

What do you eat when there is nothing to eat? We all have those days.

I was glad for all that fruit in various forms. Without it, it would have been a day filled with either bland food or very weird combinations...
