No New Food Challenge

So, I completely failed at photodocumenting my week of no new food purchasing. But that's okay because it wouldn't have been terribly interesting. After making my store run for Eat For A Week, I cooked a huge pot of pasta, fried up some poulenta, and made some hummus for snacking. And that's pretty much what I ate all week. (I don't typically eat breakfast anyway, so no worries about strangeness there.) I did get to eat out a couple of times because some friends wanted to buy dinner, which was nice. But I bought no new food... I think. It's been a little while, and if you know me then you know how spotty my memory can be.

I failed at noticing the part where this was also to include no new beverages. Wasn't part of my plan, so I was getting coffee and Mountain Dew on an almost daily basis throughout the week. Which is really a good thing because me without caffeine... well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty. And it could very well have led to me becoming unemployed once again due to poor conduct. So yeah, I'll go ahead and spend my money on that.

I have the next Eat For A Week recorded, I just have to edit & upload the thing. Which has been difficult without my computer. (If you haven't been following my twitter, my computer got sick - really sick - and had to go for an extended stay with the doctor. Yeah, that was fun.) I do have him back now, though, and fortunately Applecare covered the whole thing. Which is more than I can say about my extended protection plan for my van. But that's another rant for another time.
