Who says we have to eat three meals a day? Now with the Covid-19 threat and increased isolation, less exercise, if I ate three meals a day I would be 300 pounds. Of course I don't have kids, I've only myself to please.
So I have breakfast, toast, PB and J, or oatmeal, and lunch/ dinner mid to late afternoon. This way I can eat things that I like, and indulge my sweet tooth, without overdoing it. Sometimes I snack on leftovers mid morning. The rule is "don't deny, delay". Fasting from five PM to eight AM isn't that hard and I cook once a day, or once every two or three days. I love casseroles and fresh produce from the garden, rarely eat red meat. Veggies and chicken roasted on a pan in the oven with a little garlic olive oil is great. (I roast my tomatoes for canning this way, cut side down, 400 degrees for 30 or 40 minutes. Just pinch the skins off.)
Another time saver is the recipe I found here for "poly bread", dough that I keep in the refrigerator and pull off portions for rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza, small loaves of cheese bread, even donuts or fry bread, pigs (or veggies) in a blanket... .
Mix 4 cups hot water, 2T salt, 2t yeast, 1/2 Cup oil. Add enough flour to make a dough, 10 cups plus or minus. Knead, let rise, punch down, and place in an oiled plastic gallon sized bag. Keeps well in the refrigerator for a week or more.
Hang in. Bobbi McC
