Today's plan went pretty well, and then not so hot. I started out with the potluck coffee, with the usual eggs and greens cooked in butter.
I had even more coffee from trader Gabrielle, and then couldn't pass up the donuts either. I did pick one with cinnamon, quipping that cinnamon helps reduce the incidence of diabetes. Some non-careful listeners were taken in by my argument.
I just have to find a way to pass on the donuts. It is so hard when I have to walk by them all the time and they call out to me. Earlier it has been a bite or two, or a donut hole, but today it was a full-fledged pastry.
For lunch I had nasturtium blossoms, coffee, salad and trek mix from trader Ingrid and some bean soup and the last of the herb tea made yesterday.
The REALLY GOOD THING that happened today is that I found some organic grass-fed ground beef on sale. This was especially nice to find after my weekend phone call turned up only boutique prices for local beef. The quick-sale beef was $3.99 a package, so I snapped up three of them. This compares to the $8 a pound from the other place.
The store had about a half-dozen packages. I should have gotten more, but I don't have room in the freezer.
For dinner, I had BEEF, cooked with the last of the enchilada sauce from trader Humberto, leeks, fennel, oregano and celery, a huge artichoke from trader Alpha, butter, coconut milk with chocolate powder from trader Felix, a tangerine from trader Pablo and some winter squash with even more butter.
The grass-fed beef was $8.97, so I have only $13.70 left in the kitty. However, I am doing well, with some liverwurst in the freezer, several servings of pork, a half dozen eggs, almost two sticks of butter and almost half a can of olives.
