Hello I have forgotten how to feed myself and even how to choose foods at grocery stores. I think when this happens, you just have to eat everything in your pantry and then start over from the ground up, right? So like, all the flour, the cans of beans, the crackers. You just eat it all. You don’t even season it, you just eat it. A bowl of flour. A plate of beans and crackers. Fruit leather from 2015. And then the magic of a completely empty pantry will cause you to wake up of a morning feeling like Jamie Oliver, a little lesbian Jamie Oliver, ready to whip up a batch of [I don’t know yet, my pantry isn’t empty] in no time. Cured!
So anyway that’s my plan. I’m hungry. How has your week been?
