Day 28 of my 30 day blog series journaling my experiment with a Capsule Kitchen. The plan? Use 33 ingredients to create all our meals for three months. If you just joined me you can either start at Day 1 or view all Capsule Kitchen posts.
On Day 27 our local Farmer’s Market finally opened for the season. As we approached the pavillion I was a little nervous. I noted 6 vendors and 1 shopper.
As we entered the pavilion, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount and variety of produce. Cherries, tomatoes, kale, summer squashes, onions, raspberries, peas and more.
And there were Michigan strawberries, as delicious as I remember.
We came home with a nice assortment of produce.
Gone Away All Day
After a leisure trip to the Farmer’s Market, we returned home. I had a couple of hours before I headed out-of-town for my cousin’s baby shower.
While I was gone, Mike drove Miranda to an out-of-town graduation party for twin friends. We all returned home about the same time.
All tired. All hungry.
I was wishing I’d put something in the crockpot that morning. I was hoping we had leftovers in the fridge. I was dreaming someone would drop off a home-cooked meal.
So, I whipped up some scrambled eggs. Quick, filling and simple.
It’s Not People
After long days away, I sometimes wish there was a pill that provided both nutrition and fullness. This past week we found a possible option. It wasn’t a pill, but a drink.
The website states that Soylent is:
A full day of balanced nutrition made in 3 minutes for $3/meal.https://www.soylent.com
A friend of ours tried Soylent during his Five-Minute Geek Show podcast last Thursday. We tuned in to his video version to see his full reaction. He found the drink to be palatable.
I’m thinking that if my family is willing to give up taste a few meals a week, I’d add this product to my Capsule Kitchen list.
How About You?
What’s your quick go-to meal when you’ve been gone all day and everyone’s hungry? Would you consider adding a product like Soylent to your menu?
