Returning to Normal?

We are still making 95% of our meals and shopping less but we aren’t in the same place we were before since shopping has mostly returned to normal. I might update periodically and if things change more often but I can’t keep up with the daily posts now.

Day 485: Sesame Soba Noodles

We picked my car up so we stopped and got sandwiches and ingredients for tomorrow’s dinner at the Italian store.

For dinner I made sesame soba noodles with tofu, cucumber and snow peas.

I did a lot of weaving but one warp broke! I have to wait for some special needles to arrive to try and fix it.

We watched Resident Alien on Peacock, we got a free six months with our internet provider.

Day 482: Lamb & Pancakes

For brunch Matt made pancakes. So good! He real has perfected pancakes during all this.

I made made crumble bars.

For dinner we smoked some lamb on the grill that I had bought frozen last year! It got done way faster than expected, maybe because it was very hot so that threw our meal plans off a bit. We ended up eating it cold with some stuffed grapes leaves and a tomato salad I made with mozzarella pearls, parsley and cucumber.

Day 480: Giant Sandwiches!

We drove out to Sykesville near their little historic Main Street to pick up a inkle loom from FB Marketplace and caught the tail end of a tiny parade (advertised as having 30 people plus floats) and someone getting a novelty sized check for $25,000 for fixing up historic main streets.

Then we stopped in this sandwich shop in the parking lot of a gas station and brought home sandwiches. To our surprise they were massive and they must make their own marble rye and Cuban bread. Who knew, weird little place??

And the loom lady gave me a big box of yarn, supplies and books to go with the barely used loom! Not bad for $50!

Then we got soft crabs and made them with some leftover beet mashed potatoes.

I made a little plum dessert

We watched more Candace Renoir on Acorn

Day 474: Eggplant Parm

Matt went to an Italian market near his parents’ house and brought back some goodies!

We had two kinds of “stuffed bread” (stromboli?) and some stuffed peppers and olives.

Then for dinner we had some eggplant parm and Matt made sauce and spaghetti to go with.

Lots of cleaning and watched some City on the Hill on our 99¢ Prime Day sub.

Day 473: Brunch!

Actually ate at a restaurant with a friend! I was invited to a PR lead brunch and got to try about some new sandwiches at Dashery.

They source things locally which was a big plus.

For dinner I had Taiwanese wide instant noodles with beet greens from the CSA and some frozen mixed seafood.

Matt came back from NYC with some goodies so we had a late night mozzarella and bread snack .
