Have you ever resorted to emergency rations?
So, for those of you who don't know, I've been off work, a bit under the weather, this week (I have no voice!!! Noooooo!!!!) And because of this, I've mostly lived off toast for the past 6 days.
Now this isn't quite as bad as it sounds, on the surface. I have (had?) three types of bread in my freezer, (1) a Bakers Delight wholemeal, (2) a rather nice wholemeal vienna-style loaf, and (3) a loaf of Irrewarra Sourdough spicy fruit n nut. I say "had" as the Irrewarra is all gone now. It's a fantastic way to start the day, though, and it was thoroughly enjoyed.
On the others I enjoyed a variety of toppings... vegemite, honey, peanut butter, jam, peanut butter and jam, peanut butter and honey, peanut butter and banana, tinned spaghetti, creamed corn... But I would like to state, for the record, that I am thoroughly sick of toast. I haven't eaten this much wheat in YEARS and I hope I don't again for a while.
But you know how it is when you're sick - you just can. not. be. bothered. Here's hoping a weekend off market work means that by Monday I'll be well again and ready to start the new job.
