Inspired by the book 30 Chic Days at Home by @fionaferrisnz Day 21 – Make do and mend. I haven’t been doing a lot of mending, but I have been practicing making do, particularly in the kitchen. My daily schedule pre-pandemic involved driving my kids to and from school each day. My son’s school is very close to the grocery store, so it was not uncommon for me to me dropping in to pick a few things up 4 or more times a week! I’m now just doing one weekly order and we are “making do” just fine! When I’m feeling uninspired or missing certain ingredients for a recipe, I resort to a “make do” meal of power bowls. I start with a base of rice or quinoa and from there, it’s whatever is on hand. Since everyone has different tastes, I set the counter up like a salad bar so everyone can build their own bowl. This photo was my son’s plate – rice, beans, tofu, lettuce, carrots and potatoes. It sounds like a strange combination, but topped with a sauce or dressing it was really yummy!
