Day 141: Leftovers & Leftovers

I planned today to be an easy cooking day so I could bake something but a key ingredient was spoiled so I couldn’t.

We had leftover potato salad and one sausage each for lunch. I had the leftover beets too. I’m trying to clear out the fridge so I know what’s in there and make shopping easier on Wednesday.

For dinner we had leftover barley soup.

We have some fun meals planned for the weekend but they are all coincidentally pretty sausage heavy. That’s the problem with shopping less frequently, you really have to make do with what you have. I have some ideas for other meals but they all require a trip to the store.

Non-food related activities:

Umbrella Academy is back on Netflix!

I had another migraine (or the same one, rebounding?) and felt kind of woozy.

Started three books I didn’t like and returned them to the library.

Listened to more You’re Wrong About

Started watching New Girl. I’ve only seen the Prince episode before.

Day 91: Chicken Sandwiches & Cucumber Salad

For lunch I made sandwiches with the leftover chicken thighs, tomato and lettuce and served them with leftover lentil salad.

In the afternoon I made some cucumber salad to have with dinner. For dinner we had smoked salmon with red onions and cream cheese on English muffins (Matt) and crackers (me) and some chips.

Non-food related activities:

We watched Eve’s Bayou on DVD. Matt had somehow never seen it!

We watched the last A Touch of Cloth on Prime.

I listened to some of the Your Own Backyard podcast. The host seems like someone I’d want to punch.
