Day 25 Meals (33.7% of original challenge complete)
Breakfast was bran cereal with blackberry jam, applesauce and chicory beverage.
For lunch I had polenta with blackberry jam.
Thursday was the long awaited FAMILY DINNER DAY. Kathleen was our main cook. It was a wonderful challenge friendly meal. On my plate was 1/2 ear of corn, cooked beats with rosemary, spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and a turkey pot pie (Mark and I combined ingredients and Mark made some wonderful turkey pot pies). I also ate (not pictured) a wonderful rice pilaf (made by Sharon), a small piece of polenta with tomato sauce, some yummy blueberries and a cup of chicory beverage. It was a delightful meal followed by a great Clue game.
We hope you enjoy our blog about 3 challenges we embarked upon to experience eating from the past. We grew our own food, hunted, gathered and preserved while trying to avoid modern day conveniences and temptation. It was challenging and rewarding! Stay tuned for updates!
