A real-time look at what we ate this week. The plan with some notes about diversions from it.

This was an unusual week for me since I was at a retreat and being cooked for. But I like to show what I choose in a situation like this. The one thing I really enjoyed that I don’t usually have were some great buttery, garlicky croutons from the salad bar!
