I made so many lunches for myself this week: this morning I had a choise between peanut butter and honey sandwiches and rice-tuna salad. As delicious as the rice-tuna salad promises to be, I have decided to put the PB and H in my lunch bag this morning. It’s fun to have options!
I made a rhubarb crisp yesterday, which I have portioned out into plastic containers for my lunches as well. I’m thinking of purchasing some ice cream to eat with this? Just because it’s still just a little too tart. I put, like, an extra cup of rhubarb than the recipe called for as I have a lot of rhubarb in my freezer to do stuff with.
Speaking of rhubarb, I have a recipe for zuccini bread in the cook book for my new bread maker. So that’s something else to do if I get a lot of zuccini this year.
I was pondering about how my journal is mostly a recording of things I have done in the past (even if it was just a few moments ago, as with the big lunch decision I just made). Perhaps I should also write about what I’m going to do in the future. Or at least what I think I’m going to do.
As for the past, on Saturday night I went to see “The magic flute” which is an opera that was written by Mozart and was first performed in 1791. It was grand on a grand scale. Got a little tedious around the 2.25 hour mark, but other than that I liked it pretty much the whole way through. (The ‘pretty much’ is a reflection of the subtext of presenting the women as impractical and flaky, and the men as logical and reasoned. But I can overlook that because the costumes were pretty and the comic relief was satisfying.)
I ended up asking Susan to go with me, as my origianal opera buddy, Noralee, was sick. We had fun being dressed up, and looking at all the other dressed up people.
