A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

First solo outing for a while

The doctor said I could drive now, so this morning I went grocery shopping. My thought was to go early—8:30 or so—before people are about, but the car wouldn’t start. I figured it was just a matter of getting gasoline to the engine but without flooding. After turning it over multiple times, though, I started to think it may have lost enough of a charge. I came in, waiting about five minutes or so, then tried again, and it started—roughly at first, but smoothed out quickly.

So a late start, but it’s raining, so the streets were still pretty much deserted. Got there, bought a lot, and am home again. I did get swordfish, pignolas, Roma tomatoes, etc., for this dish, along with some pitted Kalamata olives that I’ll halve and add. (Halve so that I get more olive bites without so many calories, plus halving them detects any pits still remaining.)

No spinach, though, so I got some rainbow chard to cook separately, and rice will be the starch. I’ll also go with 1.5 Tbsp of olive oil instead of 3.

It’s very nice to have the kitchen stocked again. I just had a bowl of berries for the fruit snack.
