Menus For The Quarantined Life ~ Part 4

Arrow Day 3

First off, I wanna say that what we’re doing here is all voluntary mind you, we’re not  sick.

We’re referring to this as Self Containment more so…but now it has a NAME!?

Social Distancing  oh-key-do-key then …




I had the forethought to make Cranberry Bran Muffins yesterday afternoon.
I served these with Butter and the last of my homemade
Meyer Lemon Curd.
Then I supreme’d two Oranges
and we washed it all down with Peppermint Tea and Coffee




I started to get a bit peckish, so I warmed up some
leftover Spam Fried Rice and did something I never do,
ate in front of my computer 
DH didn’t get hungry until much later in the afternoon,
so I suggested a PB&J on White Bread with a
glass of Ice Cold Milk, he didn’t turn it down




I started a pot of Homemade Marinara with Country Style Pork Ribs,
or what some may call Sunday Gravy.
I haven’t made Sauce in forever!

I left the Sauce to simmer slowly all day yesterday,
in my new favorite Pot
the house smelled so wonderful!

I let that cool and stashed it in the Icebox, pot and all, until this evening…
slow-cooked foods always taste better a day or so later, don’t you think?

I scooped up just enough for our Sunday Pasta Supper
and put the rest in the Deep Freeze out in the garage.
We had some Trader Joe’s Ciabatta and I found a
fabulous bottle of Sangiovese, squirreled away in my pantry,
to go with our meal.
DH doesn’t drink alcohol, so it’s all me! 

I’m tellin’ ya, we’re going to gain some serious weight
here over the course of our Self Containment, I mean
