Running down the perishables

One of the things to be done before leaving on a big trip is to run down any perishable food supplies. The goal is to end up on the day of departure with no milk, no bread, no eggs, no fresh fruit or vegetables in the house. So last week I bought less than the usual supplies of things, trying to make sure we didn’t have anything left over that would need to be thrown out before we leave.

Today I used the last of the cauliflower in dinner, and last night I used the last onion. I’m not quite sure what we’ll do for dinner tomorrow, because all we have left is two eggs and three carrots (although I suspect the carrots will actually last 3 weeks in the fridge, and so won’t need to be discarded). There’s non-perishable stuff, so I guess I could make two eggs with… rice, or lentils.

On the other hand, I’ve been looking at and booking some food experiences in Rome. I’ve found some good looking restaurants and made online bookings, and I’ve also booked this cool looking Roman market tour. We get to wander around with a local and meet market sellers and sample a bunch of foods from the markets! It should be a lot of fun.

I didn’t do much else today other than running 5 ethics classes online, walking Scully a couple of times, and polishing off another Darths & Droids strip – the last one I need to complete before leaving on my trip on Saturday.
