Quick post before going observing (I'm an astronomer...).
My oatmeal (see yesterday's preview) turned out awful. The food warmer must be hotter than a slow cooker, not colder. The oatmeal was burnt! yuck. so I threw that out.
I nibbled on carrots, sugar snap peas and a little fruit while making lunch and dinner. Oh, here's something that turned out great: I took some beans and grains from the freezer--a batch of just beans and some kamut, barley and wild rice cooked up, bland on it's own--and added a mashed baked sweet potato (which I decided later probably wasn't needed), some curry powder, cinnamon, and sliced grapes. This was great! curry powder, cinnamon and grapes is a great combination and will turn a bland dish into a yummy curry dish.
Then had big salads with the usual local and garden produce: massaged kale, cabbage, lettuce mix, spinach mix, jicama (okay, that was from Mexico), yummy yummy asian pears! (from California), yummy kiwi berries (from California), red bell pepper, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, d'angou pear vinegar. okay, that wasn't such a local salad after all except for the greens.
gotta run, see you tomorrow!
