With the lock down just a few days away, I forced myself to get up and out early enough to miss the regular shoppers. After dropping off a bag for the food bank, I began to shop for the next couple of week. Unusual for me is soup… lots of soups.. I’ve lost my appetite, for whatever reason, I don’t seem to want to cook. The last two grocery trips, have seen me stocking up on canned goods. Yes even veggies! Me, who always wanted fresh so I could steam and cook them just the way I like them. I now have cans of veggies on my counter waiting to be put away. OK selective, I only like a couple of standard veggies … at one time I would have turned my nose up at any canned vegetable. Preferring if not fresh, than frozen.
Age, the pandemic, isolation, whatever it is… the desire for a fresh salad, or a steamed side dish of broccoli or cauliflower has poofed. I’m opening cans of French style green beans, or south western kernel corn and eating right from the can!!!! how gross is that. I even got tins of mixed peas and carrots. I grudgingly have to admit, at this time in my life, I’m enjoying them. repeat Cold right out of the can. Thank goodness my Mother is not around to read this, and if I’m lucky my sister will not read today’s post. We all have to adapt. Breakfast is Irish oatmeal with buttermilk and some banana.
LOL as a friend once said, he looks at the picture(s) especially if there is too much text!
