Another travel day which are always the most stressful days for this challenge because I have no time to prepare anything and I have to move all my food to another place which is one gigantic pain. The good news is that I will be house sitting for about 3 weeks so I won't have to move everything back again for a bit. Still, I always dread these days.
To try and calm myself and get in the correct frame of mind, I did do my morning walk and found a new fruit tree — black fig. This was on private property, but the owner was out in front. I had no idea what the tree was and simply asked what kind of fruit tree it was. The owner explained it was a black fig tree and handed me a couple to try:
I wonder what would be the best way to use these? Any suggestions?
Most of the day was spent packing up my stuff and traveling to my new residence for the net few weeks and getting settled into the place.
Cherry Plum Oatmeal
I decided to use up the last of the cherry plums in my morning oatmeal to get a filling meal into my stomach for the move to the house sitting job. I've been surprised at how much I like these and I should be able to find more with a bit of searching.
Double Peanut Butter Sandwich
By the time I was able to get everything moved and settled into the new place, I was starving (and still needed to take the dog for a walk). I threw together a double peanut butter sandwich, a handful of the toasted Wheat Thins and a glass of blueberry juice (half water / half juice). Quick, easy meal that fills the stomach and it is hard to complain about that 😉
Beef Mushroom Rice
I was exhausted by the end of the day and had no desire to cook anything. I simply reheated the beef & mushroom rice for dinner and called it a day.
