Day two

Tonight we had chili from November. I forgot to take a picture of it, but hey, it was leftover chili. It was served over a bag of Trader Joe's frozen brown rice, which I am probably going to regret later on when I reeeeaally don't feel like dragging out the rice cooker, as opposed to tonight when I only sort of didn't feel like it.

I went to the store and spent an insane amount of money, considering it was two bags of non-meat groceries. I blame it on the twenty dollar jug of maple syrup and the vanilla extract, which I had to buy because I have yet to order my vanilla beans and make my own damn vanilla extract, already. Maybe also the three dollar-twenty-nine apiece lemons I bought because I forgot that I ordered lemons in my CSA box. I told you guys I suck at this stuff.

$3.29 a piece lemons? Did I misread?
Maple syrup is our downfall.

Those lemons better be the biggest, juiciest lemons in the world.

Three lemons at $1.29 apiece. I knew that would be unclear even as I wrote it. I buy organic because citrus is so heavily sprayed and I put them peel and all in my beverages.

After I bought the $20 quart of maple syrup, I checked whether or not organic matters. It's one of those things where the answer is "not really" but it supposedly means they are a little nicer to their trees and it's a little better for the Earth.
