Day 31

Breakfast; bran cereal, fried polenta, 1 egg, applesauce. Remember how I said I am done with bran cereal? I am. But I sill need to eat, so there you go.

Lunch; leftover fish soup, breaded fried polenta with tomato sauce, crackers. That soup was still not good. The breaded polenta is a great dish, I just wish I had come up with it sooner. I will be eating it all too frequently in these waning days of the challenge.

Dinner; mixed vegetables with soybeans. I threw everything in the crockpot to make soup. I used the juice from canned tomatoes as stock, soybeans, fresh turnips, fresh beets, frozen and fresh carrots, turnip greens, and garlic. I didn't put the lid on straight or it got bumped off, because when I came in at dinner time it was cocked to one side and almost all the water had cooked off. It was still edible, save for a few choice bits. I can say with certainty now that I do not like beets.

  1. I can't believe it's been a month!! you two are so awesome.

    Try roast beets! Cooking them at high temps carmelizes the sugar. I'm also a big fan of this recipe; Brian and I just ate it today:

    shredded the beets fine and frying them makes it almost like a latke.

    I'm going to have some polenta and beets for dinner! go challenge!

  2. No more beets for me! They taste like dirt!
