17 days of single serve
It was interesting 17 days eating mostly alone. No one dictating what I should or shouldn’t but controlled by whatever items were left in my fridge or pantry. I went grocery shopping when it was absolutely needed such as a gallon of milk when I wanted to have cereal in the evening. It was still 2/3 left when they came home. Some dinners were just picking vegetables from garden or toasted flat bread with humus, simple like that. Dining out at a nice restaurant with girlfriends was fun. Attending a friend’s barbeque fest alone over the Labor day weekend was a bit intimidating but at least I was well fed. One day I stopped by a Korean restaurant for Dol Sot Bibimbap and friendly master talked to me and I responded with my limited Korean. I was sweating a lot but it was not just steaming hot dishes for sure. I called my husband everyday and ask what they ate for dinner. When he says Kobe beef or Matsuzaka beef I got totally jealous. Anyway, I plan to do South Beach diet while they are gone but never materialized but again I was never very serious about it either. When I got a little bit of effort to eat right but my weak will easily shattered as friends brought some homemade sweets over. I brew buckwheat tea and happily have a big portion of that. I’m saying no one to monitor my diet was the down fall of eating alone.
I found these while I was cleaning up and organizing things. I made the summer jacket that my husband is wearing in this picture. I guess I used to be a devoted housewife. But, what’s up with his hair???
I will be posting some pictures from their trip to Japan in my next post so come back to see them if you’d like.
