Meals in New Zealand
If you think that would get old, keep in mind that this is the same lunch that David had packed in his bike bag to work for the last 15 years, for similar reasons: cheap, healthy, and practical (for a bike commute). This trip involved a lot of big changes, but it wasn’t about change for change sake (which is the philosophy of a cancer cell, after all). Where old routines made sense, we had no objection to falling back on them. Sometimes we’d have cheese instead of yogurt or fruit. We know—wild and crazy, huh? Actually, we pretty regularly diverged; any time there was a market, we’d make a picnic lunch from whatever looked good there. The meal below started around some Prima Donna cheese we saw, and after getting components from four additional vendors, we had a fantastic lunch ready to assemble.
If we could just come up with an easy dessert made with peanut butter (and limited to only a couple other ingredients) we’d be in heaven.
