I made cookies yesterday and have been hoarding them like a miser. Since we are out of snacks, these have become the snacks. I need to put them in school lunches and have them available after school. So last night when Robert was eating them as freely as he normally eats chocolate chip cookies, I gave him the what for. (Part of my indignation probably came from the fact that I haven't even been able to taste any of the yummy looking cookies, because of this thing I'm doing.)
I have 5 eggs left and only 2 more days of the Food Storage Challenge so in reality, we're not in an egg crisis. But what if we didn't know how long those eggs would have to last us? What if this were a real emergency that lasted 6 weeks instead of 6 days? See how important those eggs would become? I'd need them to make bread, for example.
I know. I need to relax a little.
Ethan was very curious about the bottomless milk jug. I just told him we still had milk and he could use it on his cereal and he seemed satisfied with that answer.
We still have plenty of food to eat. I have freezer dinners in the freezer, stuff in the pantry and jars of preserves in the garage. Tonight we will have left over chimichangas, which was a freezer dinner. Friday we will have the left over Basic Bulgur Poultry Casserole.
Then, early Saturday morning, I'm getting up and going to Winco and buying two dozen eggs, fresh veggies and fruit, and I would say milk but the milkman delivered yesterday but we're holding off consuming that until Saturday.
Should be a piece of cake. Which by the way, would require 3 eggs to make.
