|My Lettuce Crop.|
Breakfast, lunch and dinner… It is amazing how much of a shift occurs in what I am eating during the week as opposed to the weekend, where I have time to cook. Does anyone else feel the same way??? My week day meals are typically filled with sandwiches- I do love them and lots of leftovers. Today was breakfast as usual with homemade yogurt. Lunch included a special treat and was eaten in class, details below. During the week I am usually rushing and rarely have time to sit down and eat lunch on Mon/Wed so I eat at the start of class. I was excited to have a salad with the lettuce that we grew for class but I was a little disappointed I wasn't able to finish one of my salad plates in time to eat the first crop. And that I had not brought my dish set with me to eat off. I have been cautiously carrying my dishes to and from home and I decided I did not want to bring them to class until I had a proper caring case. I plan to build a case to house my dish set for easy, convenient, and most importantly SAFE transportation. I wish would have thought about this before I started the project but I guess part of this piece is that it develops as the need arises. I had dinner at the studio after getting out of my evening class. To be honest, I usually eat dinner out of the Pyrex container I bring it to school in. It is simple and requires I only wash one dish. It was a nice shift eating off my dish set even if it means washing a few more dishes.
