Anyway, ever since getting/installing the AC, I have been soooo tortured by illness, intermittently but in long spells. One main prob has been severe, weird headaches. No way I can think or post during these. But I have gotten a few things done, like cooking, so all I'm going to mention is food, for now.
Managed to walk early to a farmer's market, bought some veggies while they were closing. Went to other stores and walked home. Veggies languished until tonight.
I also made a big batch of spanish rice, but included split peas, lentils, mushrooms, etc. Very good, but not really Spanish rice. A little seasoning on top and it was great. Just too much of it. So I decided to make burritos using it. I got the burrito bread during my excursion on Saturday. Also bought two small pizza shells. All were gluten-free.
All at the same time: Made six burritos, which included refried black beans. However, the bread broke at every fold. Also made tow little pizzas. I retrieved the home-made sauce from the freezer, and also cooked in fresh basil from the farmers market, etc. It honestly turned out to be the best sauce I have ever made or tasted! It was amazing. But the burritos were just bland, pretty much. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Also, I made...??? - oh! I made a big bag of popcorn. All popcorn is non-GMO, btw.
The next day - Tuesday - I went to do laundry and shop. The bus driver offered to sell me organic eggs, so I will get them next Tuesday. Even though I feel really horrible at the moment, I am thinking of walking down to the farmers market again tomorrow, and doing the same thing. I have too much vegginess, but I still would buy things like mushrooms, herbs, tomatoes, who knows.
Tonight, I have been boiling kale and Swiss chard. I saved a good deal of kale for me and dog to eat in freshness, over time. I will freeze the rest. I found that Swiss chard is pretty nutritious. I am boiling that up separately. I am saving much of the fresh stalks for whatever. I will also be boiling some beats, to be sliced, and then to be fermented, and then to be pickled and put away in the fridge. Beats are great - lots of silica, etc. I could use twice as many for this projects, so please pray that, tomorrow, I get beats, and not beat.
My computer is freezing up again so I will need to shut it all down which takes time, and start all over again. I really am going to have to do something serious about this soon - because it is now happening only 2-3 days after any reboot.
One thing I can sometimes do when ill and fatigued is to just become a vegetable and stare at a movie, hopefully to appreciate it. Latest movie: "Tristan + Isolde," which I hope to post about. Have seen it once, and then twice with each commentary - and soon: once again. This is what I do when I really study a movie. And, I sometimes miss a few things the first time around, due to the holes in my brain. Time to turn off the chard...
