My favorite brand of Chocolate bars, Lillys – Gluten-free, sweetened with Stevia. My fav varieties: Almond Dark Chocolate (love almonds w/chocolate), Coconut, Salted Dark Chocolate, Blood Orange….all yummy. The Blood Orange, Coconut have subtle hints of flavor, the Salted Dark has a nice salty-sweet…not too sweet either.
On my needles, Cocoa color cowl, for my hubby…made with Red Heart Soft Essentials yarn…super soft! Using #8 circular needles.
Police tape surrounds the veggie & fruit stands in this time of COVID-19. In New York, we must all continue to wear a mask, social distance and use the disposable gloves the vendors have offe if you chose to select your own goods…
On this beautiful Fall day all masked up 😷 I go early, move fast, and hope to avoid others….
Heirloom Tomato 🍅, Garlic Chives, Green Onion Scallions.
Wearing a mask it’s not easy for anyone…do it anyway!!! I saw a post on FB that read, “if you don’t like wearing a mask, you certainly won’t like having a ventilator”…truth!!
A new routine…avoid all things people. Singing birds wake us early and insist we show up each day. Morning & evening walks down a quiet residential street …embracing the quiet times at a small corner park bursts of Springtime blooms.
Pretty much everything that comes into my home is purchased online. I’m one of those cleaning cans and wiping down plastic/cardboard surfaces. I haven’t ordered open fruits nor veggies since March. I prefer the no-contact deliveries where items are left at the door. I urge everyone to at least double the Tip for all deliveries.
My favorite easy to use and reliable delivery sites: Vitacost, Target, Walmart, Amazon, as well as their Prime Now groceries delivered from Whole Foods….for a few weeks delivery was limited but with enough time to try again I usually snagged a delivery slot.
New items, I never considered before COVID-19: (in the event we need it).
A Pulse Oximeter….small device that measures your oxygen level and pulse…
Protective glasses… clear ones that fit over my sunglasses…taking no chances!! It is believed COVID-19 can be caught via the eyes! Certainly not looking forward to the Summer heat!
If you’re gluten-free or just looking for low carb alternatives for quesadillas …this almond flour alternative is AMAZING!!! I used a brown rice & Spanish red bean mixture and always rockin the guac. I also make a black bean and vegan cheese filling. I give it a quick toasting in a cast iron pan and voila!
Siete brand also has a Cassava flour tortilla which great too.
Some of my favs from Whole Foods. Simple Mills crackers (Rosemary & Sea Salt) are yum! The unsweetened Coconut “milk” is for my smoothies. I’ve added Arugula…tastes like peas. 🙂 Nuts of all varieties are a staple for me.
