5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

Last week was the exception.  We had just arrived, it's Jake's first visit, so why not consume greasy pasteis, and have ice cream and chocolate every day? (Don't worry, it didn't happen every day!)

Now it's time to straighten out again, before the bad habits take over. 

The difficulty is that I, who considered myself to be quite proficient in the kitchen, have completely left my recipe ideas back home.  In Canada.  In my mind, it's as if we moved to a different planet.

Granted, there are quite a few things you can't find here (including some of the natural/vegan type foods I was accustomed to buying).  For the most part, however, you can find a 'natural' section in the grocery store.   I was happy to find some ground flaxseeds to help keep me, um, regular.  Praise the Lord for that!

My customary way to do things was to plan the recipes for the week, then do grocery shopping with that in mind.  Perhaps I should get back to doing that again.  I think it might help me focus.

Hi Ash
Your first week was one of resting up from your long journey to get there and becoming to accustomed to the environment once again, this time as a married woman planning your own meals.
I am sure that once you start into a regular routine of shopping and getting to know the stores you will be able to get adjusted once again and plan the meals that are better for you.
Have fun in your new cooking adventures.
Lots of love NAN xoxox
