I have to say counting the cleanse days is a little like counting the omer. This is a thing some of us do between Pesach (Passover) and Shavuot which are 49 days apart. A counting up or toward a great finish line.
Katya has a big AP test today so I brought her breakfast in bed. It was the quinoa porridge again accompanied with fresh squeezed blood orange juice. Happily it was received just as well as yesterday and when I went to clear it away there was barely a trace left.
As the dinner hour approached, I just shoved in the oven tonight’s dinner of black bean patties. Fortunately I cooked the rice this morning while preparing breakfast. I served them like burgers with sliced tomato, red onion and lettuce. They came out fairly well though Walter thought they were a bit crunch and Katya didn’t appreciate the romaine lettuce bun that I thought was so innovative.
