    I'm planning to do that tomorrow after I finish with my standing doctor's appointment (just "checking under the hood"/"bonnet", no big deal.)

    Tonight, I'm having "fancy" beans and brown rice, Cara Cara orange and blood orange-flavoured sparkling water (I'm adding pico de gallo to the beans and rice to make up for the tasteless beans.) Might add veggie ground "beef"...

    Take care of yourself during this crisis, okay? Same goes for everyone else on IO.

    You too! People here in Berlin are stockpiling ("hamstering" in the local language) pasta and toilet paper, while shunning fresh veggies and fruit (presumably because they don't keep). We're feasting on homemade smoothies and vegetable stews every day. Strange times... interesting times...

    Fresh spinach, okra and moong dal! Got all 3 at the Asian grocer. Unlike the national chains, their shelves are full!

    I don't have permission to share the receipt that I used (it was from the lady that I'm having a dialog with [through school]) but there are several receipts online for the dish (if you're still interested in it.) :oops:

    Getting back on thread's topic, I had kasha (added chili powder to it) a chocolate bar and water (I'm getting ready for Passover, which starts Wednesday night.) The Trio had their crunchies and fresh water.

    Tomorrow night, I'm planning on having pasta with a gochujang "sauce" so I can "clean out the pantry" of open pastas.

    Turkey sausage and green beans today. I made tacos yesterday. Come to think of it . . . I wouldn't mind eating tacos all week. Just switch up the ingredients.

    Vegetarian blue corn tacos with pico de gallo instead of taco sauce, a Pink Lady apple and a diet orange soda (simple yet tasty.)

    I ran out of margarine, so I made a cornbread with peanut butter and low-sodium corn (I also used two medium eggs since I ran out of large eggs and I am saving the egg substitute for waffles.)

    I'm going to divide my two packages of pasta so I can kill two birds with one stone (make single-serving "packages" and initiate my brand-new digital food scale.) I'm hoping to limit myself so I don't cause my glucose levels to go :confused:.

    Salmon tacos using blue corn taco shells, a Granny Smith apple and flavoured seltzer was last night's dinner, and I'm having leftovers for three more days (not that I mind!) :kitty: delegation's having crunchies and fresh/"fresh" Milwaukee tap water (gotta get another thing of crunchies this weekend and/or tinned food.)

    Vegetarian pad thai, caffeine-free diet cola and a Jazz apple along with my medications (gotta take those, y'ken!) Might have a doughnut hole later to "celebrate" National Doughnut Day without raising my blood sugars too much.

    Question from someone whose first language is not English: "Eating a doughnut hole", is that a figure of speech? I came across it once, in an '80s era home computer type-in game, where the doughnut hole was a magic object (teleporting the player to the tavern), and I always figured it was a clever pun.

    Also, the US has a national doughnut day? Didn't know that, amazing!

    Doughnut holes are what comes from cutting ring doughnuts the old-fashioned way. It originally came from the center of the ring doughnuts, usually fried but sometimes baked after being brushed with some form of melted fat, then either left plain or covered in sugar, cinnamon, chocolate or some other glaze. They are usually one or two bites per hole, and several would come in a package. Any flavour of ring doughnut can be made into doughnut holes from plain or chocolate to fancy flavours like banana split or lemon blueberry or dulche de leche/tres leches.

    Yes, there is a National Doughnut Day, it is/was to celebrate the Salvation Army women that used to dole them out in 1938. It originated in Chicago, Illinois, and is celebrated on the first Friday of June. Some sources say that it is no longer confined to the United States and is celebrated by eating a doughnut (but I limit myself to one or two doughnut holes due to diabetes.) Several places that sell doughnuts will have some kind of sale/offer on the food festival.

    Thanks. So it turns out I over-philosophized this for three decades...
