    Lunch 2020

    Canned dolmas, homemade hoummus, tasteless tomato.
  2. Considering pre-crisis I could buy that can of tomatoes at my local supermarket for 99 cents...
  3. Having received my bag of almond flour via Amazon (brief backorder) I was able to make my usual vegan banana muffins. I use 1/2 c almond flour and 3/4 c whole wheat flour. Added some carob chips to the mixture.
  4. You know how there is an expression “eternity is two people and a ham”? I have the new version, two people and a 5 lb crate of clementines.

    I only added them at the very end just to warm them so they didn’t get too chewy. The pieces were quite small, I would not call them chopped, much of it was more of a minced size, in the future I might use them for a seafood soup or they might be OK in a fritter/pancake type of application. No comparison to fresh, and texture wise, probably marginally better than frozen. Keep in mind that brands may differ, these were Snows.

    Dinner 2020

    Pantry and freezer meal. Had some shrimp in the freezer, not quite enough. Can of chopped clams, can of diced tomatoes. Sauteed finely diced carrots, onion, and garlic. Added tomatoes and simmered with dried herbs, shot of fish sauce, bit of sherry vinegar. Added the mostly defrosted shrimp, when they were done I added the clams with their juice and simmered a couple of minutes. Served with small shell pasta, cause thats what was in the pantry.

    Fage plain yogurt, chopped tomato, black pepper, fresh dill (well, actually from the freezer)

    Dinner 2020

    Boneless, skinless chicken breasts coated with a mixture of whole grain mustard, sriracha, and brown sugar, oven baked. Salad of thinly sliced english cuke (marinated quick pickle style) and clementine, sprinkled with furikake.
  9. Coffee (even though I only drink one cup a day, it's an important one) and dairy in some solid/semi solid form (cheese or yogurt).
  10. Watched about half of episode 1 of season 2, it is about David's transition to being an expectant Father...pretty touching.
  11. That would be my preference, but my one of my husband's unique skills is knowing when there are new food items on the premises. Last time that I did the shopping, I did in fact put some boxes in a cabinet that he doesn't go in to for a decontamination period. At least now he won't have me yelling at him for eating the grape tomatoes straight out of the container without washing. They are clean and in a bowl on the counter for his enjoyment and my peace of mind. I tried going to a different supermarket this afternoon (needed to put gas in my car) and their paper goods aisle was stripped clean, bare. I got some store brand cleaning spray which says it is antibacterial/antiviral...and cookies which are in a plastic clamshell. The store had cart wipes, I grabbed 2 on my way in and carried them in my hand (took no cart), cleaned my purchases with the wipes in the store before bagging, and I cleaned them with the spray upon returning home. Torn between feeling slightly ridiculous...and self-satisfied.
  12. I did the post grocery shopping clean up as best I could given my limited cleaning solutions (found a partial bottle of Lysol kitchen cleaner which kind of leaves a soapy residue, but its something). Washed all fruit in soapy water. Even with a relatively small amount of groceries it was an hour, start to finish.
  13. Would be helpful if we could actually purchase Lysol spray or wipes. All I have left is Windex. No bleach, either. I have been washing my apples with soap and water, though. And I did follow that protocol when we got takeout (hot) food the other day.

    Dinner 2020

    Thai red curry chicken with the veg I had on hand...3 scallions starting to get slimy, couple of carrots sliced up, can of water chestnuts, some frozen peas. Served with rice. I feel like I’m living in the show “Chopped” at times...with a worse pantry.
  15. One of the area "artisanal" pizza shops, which has gone to limited take out only, is now also offering "pizza kits" which include two pieces of dough, cheese, sauce, and some fresh basil...add your own toppings.
