    with the current stay at home situation.  Food/preparation/purchasing  is a vital part of the day.  We are more focused on our choices and keep waste to the extreme minimal...   great lessons learned from participating in this challenge...
     Thank you,  I am very grateful to be part of this forum.  Being  a participant has definitely given me a different perspective on how I view and value food now.

      Bring sick does not help for sure because you cook like you have an appetite but then really don't Hope you are feeling better soon!

    I am annoyed with myself,  felt wasteful. I had to throw away rice I cooked on the stovetop instead of using the rice cooker. did not cook as well as planned.. was hard in some spots and mushy at the bottom... I got lazy and did not to pull out the rice cooker...
