I begin the day with 5.43 and the day is Bastille Day.
When it comes to food I have always gone to the French classics and today I always make a special dish.
I had decided that the most economical would be to make a Provencal tart with olives, onions and anchovies. But I had no anchovies so I did without. Last night while I had the turkey bones simmering I made a pastry crust.
I made more crust than I needed so this morning I pinched off a bit, rolled it out and stuffed it with cheese calzone style. It truly tasted like and resembled an empanada when baked. That and the last quarter of a pomegranate comprised my breakfast.
Last 1/4 of the pomegranate .50
Cheese empanada .40
At lunch I had the last of the too expensive but very delicious baguettes with Turkey.
Iced Tea .03
For dinner I contributed the olive and onion tart, big green salad from the garden and snow peas from the garden.
Salad and peas .10
Now my friend also had pork, corn,(organic, I won't eat GMO corn) Brussels sprouts, and some wine so we feasted. He then drug out chocolate ice cream with sauce. This is the second time this month I have had ice cream and it had been YEARS prior to this.
Calories 1,832 and a reasonably nutritious day. I have had several e mails of concern telling me that my carb and protein balance is way off. I just did a two week summary and I am getting more than enough protein and only 38% of my calories have come from carbohydrate sources.
