Meanwhile, that means no new videos and no new walk summaries. We're using an old, slow laptop until we know what's what with the main computer. I may not be blogging much until we have a resolution.
I will let you in on our latest goof-ball thing, though. A couple of months ago, we got an idea to eat according to the alphabet. An ABC food challenge, as it were. We had fun listing foods for each letter, then took it to the internet, where we discovered that this idea was not unique to us. Still, we thought it would be fun. Davan didn't want to do it until after Lena left, though, feeling it might interfere with their social eating.
Yesterday, Davan and I talked about it again. We decided to give it a go. All three of us are doing it. Today we ate (not everyone ate everything listed, but between the three of us we ate all this):
Apricots (dried and fresh)
African Bean Soup
We decided not to be too overly strict, as it's supposed to be fun, so, for example, if we wanted, we could eat African Bean Soup today under A, but also under S as soup.
On the menu for tomorrow is:
Boca Burgers (with fixings)
The whole thing will require extra food work from me, as we can't have leftovers the next day for lunch, which is something we do pretty often and Anthony can't just pack his usual breakfast of oatmeal. He and Davan (who is doing an all day camp this week) will both need food of the appropriate letter prepared the previous day to pack for lunches and snacks.
I imagine I'll be really glad when it's over. We also know already that there are some challenging days ahead, but we've got some good potential items listed for everyday except X. We're not totally sure what we're going to do with that day except that Davan, for sure, won't be fasting.
