My daughter and grandson were here for lunch today. My husband made meat loaf, fried potatoes , and corn ( 2 starches?) and I didn't have to cook or do the dishes. They had caramel apple pie for desert as well and that did not even sound good. I did OK until I realized my husband baked some fish fillets on the side and my daughter made shrimp in the air fryer. Then I was salivating thinking about that shrimp. I imagine I was experiencing some kind of "withdrawals". I went back to my bedroom for awhile and held and petted on of my cats for awhile. That seemed to help. I joined the family after most of their meal was eaten and drank some coffee and managed to fend off more temptation. About an hour ago I had my second shake of the day. I hang insulated curtains on the patio door for insulation (11 degrees tonight for the overnight low) and felt more frustrated then usual. Not having the food to pacify my emotions is taking its toll on my emotional well being. This is a trial of sorts. If I think of this experience as an opportunity for personal growth it will go so much better for me.
The plan for tonight is to have some FFL Cambridge soup.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.
