This will be the fourth of five posts on the 2010 Food Stamp Challenge. Although we have not had any comments on this blog, The Daily Democrat in Woodland, the Davis Enterprise, the Vacaville Reporter, the Sacramento Bee, and California Food Policy Advocates in Oakland have contacted us about our efforts.
Wednesday evening, I prepared the second package of ground turkey with mushrooms and spinach and used the remaining angel hair pasta to make a tasty and filling meal of chow mein.
I have noted feeling tired a little earlier each evening without my usual eight cups of coffee a day. I am not sure whether my staff notices any difference in my overall style given the lack of caffeine (smile), but I have been turning in about midnight each night rather than my customary 2 a.m. bedtime.
Friday, I will be in my District Office in Vacaville, beginning our summer work period. I will continue to work every day in Sacramento as well as throughout the district while we work towards resolving the State's difficult budget crisis.
Last word tomorrow. Mariko
