Well...here I am...
...this last week has been packed! The movers are coming tomorrow and I think we're about ready. I guess the thing about it is - we're gonna have to be ready regardless of whether we're ready or not!
We have not succeeded in emptying the freezer, but have gotten all the good stuff. Funny thing is - the good stuff is all vegetables and meats from down home - vegetables from my dad's garden and bbq from my mother! The not good stuff is all store bought stuff - we'll be donating it to the local area food bank - they actually take frozen foods.
There were several parties this week and I'm glad I got the first one out of the way first. It was big and had a smorgasboard of everything. I had too much sugar - funny how I justified it at the time. But let me tell you something...it triggered a migraine that I don't ever want to have again!!!
They always affect the right side of my head, make me nauseated, and I don't even want to hear movement. This made it much easier to not succumb to sugar temptation for the rest of the celebrations. We've got two more this week and then we'll be on the road. Avoiding sugar for the remainder of the parties and while we're on the road won't be difficult - that migraine scared the shit out of me and I'm positive it was from too much sugar.
One thing we've eaten this week that I've never had before is black bean spaghetti. My son wanted it when he was home, but it was Costco-sized so there's plenty left over. Anyway - it's dark and shaped liked spaghetti. It's only got two ingredients - black beans and water. The best part is that it's got 11 grams of fiber per serving - that's awesome. While it doesn't taste like spaghetti, it's got a good texture and is one of the few semi-processed items that I will buy in the future.
Back to packing!
