Well, perhaps it’s not always my favorite colour, but it has had a frequent presence in my food life these days. Last night’s dinner: potato, noodles, sour cream and beans. Straight out of a 1950s film, mmm. It was in stark contrast to my roommates’ dinner of avocado, cranberry, walnut salad and pumpkin-veg stew. I tried to eat at the Caribbean Church food bank this morning. While the internet said their hours were 9-12, they were only open for lunch. I quickly returned home to have a bowl of of cheerios and homogenized milk. A new conclusion: cheerios are not filling, at least not without a banana or nuts. Today at work has been sort of tough. Lots of yummy free food in the office that I am supposed to refuse, as I have continued to do. There was a fruit covered danish staring at me for the good part of a day. But persevere I shall, bean me up, scotty!
