Restocking Pantry

This morning an order was made from whole foods market. I decided to buy for only this week, instead of thinking about next week. The goal is to use what I bought.

My meal plan is to use the meats that I already cooked and are now in the freezer, ready to be thawed and warmed up. This saves me time on the long days of being at the office. Having an autoimmune, being smart about cutting down time standing or waiting for food to be done is a definite goal.

Breakfast

This morning, I was up early, just couldn’t sleep, but wanted to so badly.

I warmed up the cinnamon muffins in the toaster oven and made gluten free hot chocolate. Added watermelon and cantaloupe.

Dinner- Tuna Melt

Tonight dinner was made and it was delicious.

I cooked carrots, turnips, asparagus until tender. You can roast them. I chose to saute them. While the veggies are cooking, I warmed up the tuna from yesterday, mixed in vegan mayo.

I used Miyoko’s cheddar cheese. It is gluten free and dairy free. It is the best brand for cheeses and butter. It had me fooled it was the real thing.

On the side I included plantains chips. Gluten free as well.

I recommend this meal. It will fill you up and keep you warm.

Happy Day

A Little Cinnamon, Please

After my flop making the gluten free pita bread. I turned my attention to what I want to eat for breakfast tomorrow and the next few days. I’ll be working all day and in the office for most of the day. Some clients want a video session because covid cases has increased in my county.

So out comes the box of gluten free muffins…

Tonight’s snack

I had a late lunch, a Cinnamon muffin and fruit, mango, watermelon and cantaloupe, was a nice snack before bedtime.

Relaxing Activities

Tonight I’m going to rest under my weighted blanket, read, do my Bible study and watch some vlogs I enjoy about simple living. And I might work on the shawl I have not finished knitting. And while knitting watch something on Netflix or Hulu. Then go to bed.

Here’s my Bible study journal and Bible-the New Testament and the book I’m reading by Joyce Meyer Healing the Soul of a Woman. I find this book a gift to read. It will be a book that gets read many times before I pass it to someone else.

Happy Evening
