It is a lovely day. Sunny and pleasant. Not really warm but that’s okay.
This morning I made almond butter in my new Cuisinart. The first batch didn’t work too well as the almonds were stale, I think. I picked up another pound and then toasted them first then put them in the food processor. Viola!!! almond butter. It does take a while to get to the final stage but I will do it again because it’s nice to just make a mall amount. We never get thru a whole jar so that’s kinda neat.
Then I made polenta. Some for dinner I’ll grill and then some for later in the week. I have brown rice cooking with some added wild rice. Then I think I’ll just grill some tofu on the side.
I went to the gym and did an okay workout. I’m not feeling too inspired but I imagine it will pass.
This week is the Kitchen zone in Flylady so I’ll do that tomorrow morning. Some stuff I already did ( wiped all the stainless steel appliances) but I’ll probably have to do it again.
Next week we’re heading to New Brighton State beach to camp. The weather looks ok. there is supposed to be some showers Sunday but the rest of the week looks nice. Our favorite bakery ‘Gayles’ is there so that’s a win-win. Plus I’m looking forward to Lodge cooking again.
We are already into April and this year I’ve had almost nothing to drop off at Goodwill. I guess my balance with minimalism is darn good at this point. I just bought a new gooseneck electric teapot and the old one will go to Goodwill but really there’s not much left to declutter. Perhaps down the road with different needs or criteria, it will change.
Things do change and each season in life brings new things.
