Lunch: I felt like something substantial, and the smell of some natural corn chips and melted cheese my daughter was eating earlier made me crave something similar. So I put together all of the following:
A mug of left over Hearty Mince Soup
A salad of mesculun leaves and avocado with Honey Mustard Dressing
A handful of natural corn chips, with grated cheese melted over it under the grill, and topped with sour cream.
Turned out the soup and salad were delicious and I didn't really want the corn chips - only ate about 1/4 of them, if that.
This was also the moment I discovered the fridge had died, when I noticed the block of cheese was less firm than usual, and then that the sour cream was sloppy.
This meant emptying the small inside freezer and carrying it's contents in the pouring rain, wading through a partly flooded lawn to the freezer in the shed, so I could move the salvageable contents of the fridge to the chest freezer to keep them cool by running it for short periods until I figured out what to do about a fridge, and then going looking locally in the pouring rain. I'm very grateful I found a second-hand large fridge locally at a very reasonable price, and was able to get it delivered. Crisis solved, but dealing with everything took hours out of a day with other plans.
Dinner: My husband got home wet and hungry and fancying hot chips from the takeaway bar, so I decided fast comfort food was in order. I threw together a Potato-Tuna Melt. Tasted good, but rather high in carbs. We had it with steamed broccoli.
How I feel: Dinner apparently didn't do good things for my blood sugar levels. I didn't sleep well
Other food prep: I piled all the chicken carcasses I've been storing in the freezer each time we have roast chicken into the crockpot, covered with water, added some salt and a splash of apple cider vinegar (helps to draw the calcium out of the bones) and simmered overnight. This becomes my chicken stock to use in a variety of recipes. If I do this on the stovetop, I boil the bones for 2 hours.
