figure8 is in charge of making sure i don't die of malnutrition. she understands how distracted i get, and that i'm fully capable of surviving on beans, cheese, tortillas, and tapatillo sauce. she knows that i can make a bean tortilla work for any meal and sometimes i have to limit myself to one per day.
she also knows that several months ago... i stopped cooking altogether. i'd go to the grocery store and feel like i'd never learned how to read.
anyways, i was happy to report to her that i was eating bruschetta. bread, tomatoes, olive oil. she wasn't very impressed. i added an avocado and some black beans because she muttered something about protein.
but! i've been making things these days! i want to make things. i want to open cook books. i want to try new things. i ate salmon with avocado last week. i grilled eggplant! i marinated chicken! the other day i put sunflower seeds & black beans on my turkey sandwich. i have apples and oranges in a sack. and i've had oatmeal every morning this week.
i'm getting better.
