Today was actually supposed to be our last P2 day, but I think Mom wants to keep going. I'm ok with that. I still get my coffee and our foods are still yummy. In fact, we've used our cookbook so much that it's falling apart. lol. You get that when you start spilling things on it and it falls to the ground. Your books fall apart when you flip through them two, sometimes three times daily, too. We've been quite hard on our book, I have to say! But it's got some great recipes in it that we use as jumping off points now, altering the original recipes with substitutes from the 4kDP food list.

I've also been experimenting with different breads. In the 4kDP, you get one slice of 140 calorie bread. However, I found that 1/2 of a bagel comes in under that amount, as does a whole sourdough English muffin. Toasted, those two treats are a perfect companion to my coffee in the morning!
Just so you're not alarmed when it happens, our lavender garden is just about ready for harvesting. It takes quite an effort to get it harvested, bundled, and hung for drying with just two people doing it. I figure this year it's going to take the better part of two days and maybe into a third. I think around Saturday, we'll be out there harvesting. So, if we don't check in, don't worry. We're just bringing in the lavender! :)
