Good day yesterday. We started out the day with oatmeal and yogurt for breakfast, and then headed out for a walk at the local state park. It felt so good to be out, checking out the sights and just feeling free !
It is going to be a bit of a challenge this week. In the months of September and October DH's pay cycle gets odd, and we wind up with some days that get a little "interesting" . Nothing serious, but this is the first year that this has happened while we are attempting weight loss. We will be able to go to the grocery store on Tuesday, but today we are out of fresh fruits and any fresh veggies beyond celery and carrots. We had some scragglers in the vegetable bin, so I tossed them in the crock pot with 2 abandoned chicken legs and thighs, and it will become soup. I am calculating that 2 chicken legs and thighs , celery, carrots,onions, a parsnip and more onions in 5 quarts of water will work out to 1 point a cup soup by the time I add a handful of tiny pasta to the mix. We have lots of dried fruit, yogert and a fair stock of frozen veggies so all will be fine. i just feel weirdly naked not having a mountain of salad makings and fresh fruit in the house !
