I am all out of nuts and seeds - my mainstays. No bread or tamales. Just a few things left. Most of the canned food is green beans or corn, because this is the Midwest. Corn is usually GMO, w/ added glyphosate and mercury, plus sugar, and virtually no nutrition. But my survival cornbread is still going strong. I have quick oats. Mind you, not only have I been missing a lot of shopping due to COVID. I have also been deliberately trying to exhaust food resources, esp. canned and frozen. Why? It's a bugger to transport that during a move, so.
Anyway, with no prospects for a dinner, I decided to reward myself, recovering, with a full meat and potatoes meal. How? There were two big cans of expired chicken from the Mennonites, so delicious, (but their turkey is to die for), in the pantry. So, I opened one of those. There was a can of small potatae, used that. And, although the cabbage was beginning to go bad, I used some of that and boiled the rest. Heated/fried them all up in a pan, (no oil), and there it was - a wonderful meal. Garlic, salt and pepper - and ketchup on the potatae. So good! Had a little piece of survival cornbread for desert, and washed it down with my fermented veggie juice. Ta da!
So, I do expect I may be able to shop tomorrow. Unfortunately, countless other people will be out shopping, as they also got SNAP benefits and SSI on Sept. 1, and SSA tomorrow. I may get 2 pizzas. Also need more stuff to treat a new mite infection on dog. Then, Saturday will be the next jaunt. IF indeed I am recovering, then that should be possible. Will also use library WiFi. Had a wee run in w/ that old man again, today. Will write about that tomorrow. May style it for presentation in letter to LL, as well. Later. Stay well. PS - I missed Master Chef eliminating my beloved Bri!
For CFS diary: This is almost the end of a relapse stint that must have begun ~6 days ago?
