Food log: Sunday, September 20

So how are your allergies on this fine september day? Mine are killing me and there is no more meds in my house. I still went for a walk outside, as I had plans to fill the freezer with vegetables and fruits today. So I went to Maisonneuve market and came back with about 50 pounds of produce, plus some olive oil, bread, hoisin sauce, organic apple sauce and organic instant oatmeal. Total: $72.59.

I also got a delivery from IGA, as I was low on Perrier and meat, stuff I buy in bulk. I took advantage of this order to fill the freezer with a few goodies (ice ream sandwich, anyone?). I think I will be ok for a while there. No more food shopping. I am ready for the upcoming zombie apocalypse. The IGA order came to $177 with tip.

So, I worked all afternoon on the "Fill the freezer" project. I washed, cut, blanched, peeled and Ziplocked until I was left with a ton of green beans, yellow beans, tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, corn, strawberries and peaches ready to be eaten when the colder months come by. Yippee!

Of course, my cat could not resist playing her favorite "let's bug Eve" game: begging for a bean, playing with it for about an hour and hiding it in my bed covers.

Food log: Saturday, September 19

Today was a great day as it was my first ever visit to Montreal's Comic-Con, a low key event full of comics (duh), Superman nerds, toys, sci-fi geeks, graphicl novel authors, guys in trooper costumes and jail-bait girls in gothloli wear. It was awesome. And I also got to shake hands with Lou Ferrigno, The Hulk himself! He had a grip of steel. Good thing I had a solid breakfast!
