Food Stamp Diet: Post #6 

Ok -- we're up to day #5 (of 8, since I've added an extra day)

Breakfast: A three egg omelet with pepper jack and more leftover mashed potatoes -- I knew I'd need something hearty since I was planning to spend five hours helping construct a yurt! Tasty, filling, yay!
Lunch: This was provided to the yurt workers. We ate pasta with foraged fiddleheads, olives and sundried tomatoes. Also had a red ale and three chocolate chip cookies.
Snack: A banana with peanut butter.
Dinner: A cup of lentil stew with carrot and cabbage with the last of the cornmeal mush topped with a little cheddar.

I realized just a few minutes ago why I have such comfy associations with the word "mush." It's all because of a children's book called Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. The text of the book is in rhyme and is very catchy. And one of the rhymes mentions mush. Now you know!
