Sandy, it's always a challenge to know what to bring for a time share stay. Years ago I used to bring half my kitchen to our summer TS in P-town b/c I needed to do some cooking since the kids were little and eating every meal out was expensive and not very relaxing. ;/ I had all sorts of small bottles and containers of condiments, oils, sugar, etc. prepped to bring every year. Now I bring practically nothing but snacks for the beach and some yogurt for breakfast since we do eat out daily. What a welcome routine change! And Provincetown has such a nice variety of restaurants. Parts of western MA are pretty depressed like you saw, but if you are not too far from the Lenox area there are some very nice restaurants there. And I sure envy your peak foliage viewing! Our trip to the lake Columbus weekend was just a week too early for gorgeous bright color. It was just starting. Please do post pix!
Carole, I'd forgotten about your half pig purchase! I'm curious now about trying to make my own turkey sausage...are they patties or encased? I rarely use ground turkey tho. The color and texture of it kind of bother me, (sensory aversion, I suppose)so I'd have to get over that! If I made a nice sausage, I suppose I could add that to my turkey stuffing, instead of my usual purchased pork sausage, so DS2 could partake. He doesn't eat mammals, and I noticed last Thanksgiving, his wife made her stuffing with turkey sausage.
Meals....I may have gotten over my resistence to meal prep this weekend, which feels good. And we are back to healthful eating. Yay!
I'm feeling motivated to make a shaved brussells sprout salad after the one I had last Friday. So I have tons of them in the refridge awaiting.
We had haddock from Traders last night, which was inexplicably fresh tasting (if a bit on the wet side) coming all the way from Norway! I'd never bought fish from them before, but the price was way more reasonable than any fish at our regular supermarkets.
Tonight we had some leftover chicken, a salad with balsamic dressing and the absolute last ears of corn from the farmer's market. They are clearly moving into the “cow corn" category. I also made DH a piping hot bowl of Alessi chicken soup to which I added some chicken bone broth for more protein. He has a very bad URI which is odd for him, so I'm doing the grandma “cures thru food" choices as much as possible. But tomorrow I hope he calls the doc as his cough is awful.
Also tomorrow we have our first Celtics' game, so will probably have my salmon over sauteed veggies meal before the game. Will probably see part of the Red Sox game during dinner...so many sports teams here, so little time! HaHa.
Today I had a clear mammogram for which I am truly grateful!
Eric, I wish we were all closer and could bring you some meal variety. Much as I love pizza, I think I would start to dislike it if it were the only constant repetitive meal option. Carry on....folks in your role are so important to that population who lost so much.
