I made white rice to eat with chili for lunch. Unfortunately, I allowed Belle a sliver of cherry pie as I made the rice. Sharing the pie killed my appetite for chili. Now it's after five and I have only eaten a mushy banana, coffee, plain bread and cherry pie. Belle is asleep and dream feeding in my lap as I type. I cannot get up to get myself anything to eat. That bowl of chili I long to eat and that pot of chard I long to make seem so far away.
