Thoughts on food.
May first already??? I feel we are being robbed of our spring! :(
If this was January or February first and they asked us to stay home, I would have been thinking, "meh okay"! However everything is pretty much ruined until a vaccine shows up.
What are your thoughts on food? Here are some of mine.
1) I like porridge for breakfast, eventually I ran out of the instant porridge. I always have the regular kind on hand for baking and decided to try it. Wow, I like it so much better, I just add in some berries or a little maple syrup and it's delicious. I think I may eat this from now on instead of the instant packets.
2) I don't freeze bread, I find it hard to keep from getting that freezer burnt taste or smell. I never throw it out, I toss it into the fields and the birds love it. Many times however... I had the feeling there would come a day when it would be hard to get bread and I would regret not trying to save some. That day arrived, I miss it but I'm learning to live without it.
3) Speaking of freezing food. My friends were laughing at me last Christmas (4 months already) about how I bought a bunch of chocolates on sale and to stop myself from eating them, I threw them into my upright freezer. They are called "Turtles" and are some of my favorite chocolates, they are in little packages and they scattered down through all the food I had frozen in my freezer. Now when I take out chicken breasts or spaghetti sauce, I find a frozen treat... and sadly it makes me really really happy!
5) Speaking of treats, how many of you are trying out your baking skills? Let's just say that I made more cookies last month than probably I have made in the last two years. Now I know what you are all thinking, "but don't you live on your own Steven"... umm, ahem, umm... yes... oink oink snort!
