We don’t have any food in the house so I had to cook a lot today. Maybe that seems counter intuitive — but our staples have waned. But I made banana bread (no nuts because they have no place in my baked goods) for breakfast. I made spinach feta quiche (no mushrooms, sub heavy cream for milk and skipped the butter) and then I made veggie meat sauce (canned tomatoes, canned tomato sauce, carrot, red pepper, garlic, onion, ground beef) and pasta for dinner. Using up the pantry. Using up the veggies. Lots of cleaning followed. I’ve been feeling icky all day but if feels good to have good food. I traded some banana bread with my neighbor for extra cheese for the quiche. Since we’ve been watching Deadwood so much, I feel all 1800s barter-style about it. My daughter ate the banana bread and the pasta. Shunned the quiche. More for me.
