Oats for breakfast. Hardtack or ship's biscuit for lunch. Peas porridge and fish for dinner. Sound good?
Mixed responses all around the table. Let me just tell you right now, I am sooooo sick of cheese. Shermy wouldn't finish his oatmeal this morning but he's wolfing down the hardtack. Probably because they are in the shape of hearts. No one would touch the peas porridge willingly except for Grandma and me. Jonathan looked like he was going to gag. He thinks mushy peas have the consistency of p@*(. Gosh I'm glad I wasn't on the Mayflower. Gosh I'm glad I don't have to eat bread full of maggots and weevils. Atticus said he was grateful for that too.
"It's working!" I scream in my head. My kids will be so grateful at Thanksgiving dinner this year. I am so grateful now. I'm having a hard time sticking to my goal of not eating anything they didn't have on the Mayflower. Jonathan and Grandma went out shopping tonight and left me home alone. Aaaaahhh! The sweets, or even a cup of yogurt sounds so delicious right now. Will I resist? Would you?
