Whatever I can get my hands on. Milk, coffee and cheap wine, mostly. I did pick up a case of corona bottles on sale, though, just to help ‘em out. This has gotta suck for them! (Or will it be a counter-intuitive boon?!)
gaddammit… I wasn’t going to go to the local small store just for coffee but I needed cat litter… Since I had to go anyway got cabbage and celery for stews with the other frozen stuff. Totally forgot the coffee. Which I need for work. I guess I still have tea and caffeine pills…
I’ve been eating my liquid for months now, I usually go through spurts of eating and drinking one particular thing and totally commit. The binge this past several months so far has been frozen orange juice! Watered down of course (for less calories) and sometimes mixed with lemonade. My last longest (6 months) binge fest was with food, pork fried rice with plain yogurt, (it’s a Syrian/lebonesse thing) and before that it was mom’s homemade vegetable chilli, every, single, day, for at least 9 months! Looking back I’m remembering how the comfort that I found in it, kinda like a big hug. Sorry, I got carried away! If it had been when I was 17 and had my jaw wired shut for 3 months (dental surgery) I would’ve been drinking my food as everythin went into the blender. My peanut butter milkshakes were the bomb! Jus sayen…
@Lynnerizer Your approach greatly intrigues me. I can eat on a big batch of leftovers for about a week straight before I’m utterly tired of eating it and need a change. I like the idea of knowing what you’re going to eat for the next several months though… makes it easy to plan grocery budgets and daily schedule I imagine. Kudos!
Thanks, most of my friends give me the big eye roll. I think many years of being bed bound and then stuck in a body cast for months on end made me extreamly vanilla. I didn’t want to be a burden on anyone even though everyone would have done anything for me. I became extemly humble and grateful! It’s truly amazing how some things can change us so deaply!
@Kyeh lol. That would be Queenie. Queen of All the Beans. And, apparently, handles! I use these in the garden so I don’t have to throw them away . She was a Belgian Malinois rescue and loved to perform “squeak-ectomies” on any noisy toys (but left the flying monkeys for Shadow to demolish) .
@llangley That’s a beautiful animal! (I’m also admiring the quilt behind her - “friendship star” is one of my favorite patterns; I’ve been piecing a friendship star quilt in desultory fashion for a couple of years now.) So is Shadow also a Malinois?
@Kyeh thanks, she was soooo beautiful. And sweet. The quilt was a gift from my Mom(my), I loved it so much but told her I was afraid to use it…big dogs on the bed and all!! She told me to use it, that’s why she put all the pawprints on it and a heart on the back corner that she signed to me. So I do, and love it all the more for that memory.
Shadow is a German Shepherd rescue, had floppy ears but a big, big heart. He’s the 3rd and 5th pillow on the back of the couch. Queenie is #4 with her favorite stuffed cow (minus the squeaker). And pillows of my parents on the quilt
@llangley Oh, that’s so wonderful! The quilt is gorgeous! I love the pillows, what a wonderful idea, and the whole arrangement. I got a little misty-eyed… I hope this doesn’t sound too odd, but your mom reminds me a lot of mine, who I’m grateful to say is still alive at almost 94. She’s from Japan and she’s tiny and wears her hair short like that. Thank you for sharing this!
