Brian captured this magic moment of me in my doo-rag yesterday while we were on the Palm Canyon hike at Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. I was trying to explain to him that the rocks were a flattering skin tone.
Again, we didn’t see any animals, but we did find some AWESOME boondocking there. Full cell and beautiful landscape, though it is a bit farther away from town (not that there’s much in Quartzsite). Unfortunately, I just have this goony picture to show for it.
Dinner last night
Boring. Spaghetti with red sauce and the last of our lettuce for salad.
Yesterday I took inventory of our pantry. I’ve put an X next to the items I’ve got plans for.
- whole wheat pasta
- soba noodles
- rice noodles
- black beans X
- red lentils
- shredded cheddar X
- tomato paste
- veggie broth X
- coconut milk
- canned salmon X
- peanut butter
- celery X
- carrots X
- snow peas
- avocado X
With that list I then reviewed the clean 15 list, and came up with only 2 meals. Salmon tacos and black bean soup. So we went to the local store in Quartzsite and bought 2 onions, corn tortillas, avocado, cabbage and lime.
Once I ‘X’ out the items I’m using for those 2 meals, you can see why I’m at a loss for what to make. For lunch we’re going to have cheese quesadillas, and for breakfast I have enough rolled oats to get us through the week.
Brian is going to drive to Parker, AZ tomorrow to pick up Curtie’s dog food from the UPS store there. Hopefully he can get some decent produce at the Safeway there.
Does anyone have any menu ideas?
