It's time for week two of Sunday 6. I'm looking forward to others joining in the fun. I hope you will play along!
This past week has been ridiculously hot here in SW Florida. We have been under a severe heat advisory urging everyone to stay indoors. Our heat index reached 110 degrees almost every day, and not so much as even a slight breeze. Our AC has been running nonstop during the day. It's so bad that I have had to keep all the blinds closed to try to help keep the house cool. Sitting in a dark dungeon all day has done nothing to help keep my mood positive. Oh and Covid cases are skyrocketing out of control here, Russian fighter planes were intercepted in US airspace for the third time this month, hovering in the atmosphere is the Saharan desert dust storm, and that's just to name a few things. Seriously people, are we actually living Jumanji 2020?!
2. To do list for this week
I will suit up and head to the grocery store on Monday. Hopefully I can make it through without Covid exposure, an anxiety attack, heat stroke, or going the wrong way down a grocery aisle. The rest of the week there is a high chance of sitting on the couch day and night in the dark dungeon with a slight chance of day drinking. Chances of evening drinking will increase to 100% all week.
3. Menu plan
I don't even want to think about hot food this week, but I do have a yummy menu plan even in my current mood.
Sunday - Brunch: Homemade waffles, fresh fruit
Dinner: Antipasto platter
Monday - Falafel pitas w/ tzatziki sauce, tabbouleh
Tuesday - Club sandwiches, fresh fruit
Wednesday - Chicken and mushroom lettuce wraps
Thursday - BLT Panzanella salad
Friday - Quiche, fresh fruit
Saturday - Chicken Waldorf salad
4. Something I'd like to share
I mentioned it last week but wanted to share The Working Pantry Boot Camp Class today just in case you missed it. I've always believed in keeping a well stocked pantry (I didn't even have to panic during the 2020 toilet paper shortage). I do think it's more important now than ever. Since Covid hit I still never know what I'll be able to get at the grocery store, and of course I want to go out shopping as little as necessary right now too. If you haven't been following along head over to check it out. The class is on assignment #4 but you can easily catch up quickly.
6. Closing notes
Every time I start to say anything more I have to keep deleting. I'm biting my tongue to hold back on political rants which is so unlike me, I'm just so fed up at this point. I'll just leave you with something nicer, and I swear it is so true. I just don't get it!
