One of the nice things about the pandemic is how we have been thrown back to basics. Our food consists of whatever is available at that time. The Family has newly discovered a knack for cooking, and the two of us have finally found that we can work together in the kitchen. So one day, when she found a large packet of liver at the back of the freezer, I cleaned it out and marinated it while she chopped up a quick salad. While the liver marinated, I took a bunch of spinach leaves off to the dining table to clean. Just as The Family has discovered a knack for cooking, I’ve found that I don’t mind the tedious jobs of cleaning leafy vegetables and shelling peas. So the spinach was ready by the time the salad and marination was done. We managed to use two burners simultaneously, she sauteing the spinach as I cooked a liver curry. It looked nice on the plate, and it tasted good.
Multigrain bread is not available in our neighbourhood, so we have to make do with toasted white bread. In any case, our target through this lock-down is to lose enough weight to get close to the lowest healthy BMI. Between eating moderately and working out daily, I think we may reach our target in a couple of months. And if the lockdown ends earlier? We may not have reached the target, but we’ll still be in a good healthy range. Lovely, the ways you can find to distract yourself.
