The end is in sight. Now that I can visualize the last day and feel secure that we will have enough food to last through it- I can splurge on what is left. In the beginning of the week- we were limited by our backyard choices- but also by a fear we would eat all the food on day one and have to resort to eating the purslane weeds.
Hot tip: Purslane is edible and pretty good! It also has a high content of iron and other vitamins.
I digress. Now I can feel free to eat whatever we have left, which feels surprisingly freeing. Also a kind soul, a friend of friend, harvested some persimmons off a tree in his backyard and passed them along to us.
Breakfast: Hard-boiled eggs, persimmons and edamame. I never thought I would eat edamame for breakfast, but it was tasty.
Lunch: Salad (green beans, green peppers, arugula, spinach, radishes, cucumbers) pecans, and butternut squash. Butternut squash is delicious! Why did I wait 6 days before eating it?
Dinner: We are making venison stew with black eyed peas. More butternut squash ... and Dun Dunna DUN! Cantaloupe for dessert.
