Well it's a little easier today.
First, last night, my spirits raised by good memories and music found on friendfeed, I made myself a fried egg sandwhich which helped with the hunger. I realized that I had eggs and bread and even though eating the entire loaf and dozen is a bit much - hey, if I was hungry (and I am) I'd eat what I had.
Anyhow, I had an egg sandwich today which helped. I'm hungry now but less so than previous days.
My menu today was breakfast smoothie (last one - thought I'd measured out for 6 but miscalculated so only 5), egg sandwich, ramen with egg & green onion (saving the remaining bok choy for later) and beans and rice for dinner.
You might remember that last night I burned the rice I purchased for the challenge. So (again) I cheated a bit. I made a large pan of baked brown rice (Alanna Kellogg's recipe is genius - the rice turns out perfectly and so tasty you want to eat it plain straight out of the oven). If I used food stamps all the time I would purchase a large quantity of rice in bulk and always have a batch cooked up in the fridge so I used the equivalent amount to yesterdays disaster and the total meal cost remained under $1.00.
Two days left - the end is near - for me. But not for many others. Please consider donating to a food bank - I guarantee you it will be appreciated more than you know.
