Er, rethinking the kind of foods to fill in my empty refrigerator. I've had the fortunate experience of both DH and I going our separate ways for a few days. He to the cabin in the woods with his cronies and me to more domesticated places with Spark friends.
He had a weekend of dragging and sawing fallen wood on acreage for use in next years' wood stoves. Men and PBJ sandwiches. Coffee and politics. Realizations they were not what they used to be with all their recent medical scares. Funny, DH was the youngest and healthiest of the bunch.
Saturday I had a lobster salad for lunch in a fancy restaurant with cloth napkins, in the nighttime sat in a hotel room "snacking" and chatting for hours like schoolgirls and the next day a hike through a lovely nature preserve full of waterfalls and vistas.
Today I clean the shelves and door holders in the cold safe that will hold my edible gold. With a fresh start in the ice box will "I" make a fresh start? I'm going to try. I've made excellent choices in my main foods, less in the quantities and easily snackable items. While driving the long ride home I planned and envisioned renewing pre-measured items that I remove and eat. I've gone back to building my meals on the fly.
Time will tell.
