    Well…we made it. This blog post has been a long time coming. Ever since I made my sourdough starter (it was the first week of January, by the way), I’ve attempted to make sourdough bread.

Not because I’m relying on emotional eating during this time, but because I’m trying to cook the food I have in order to eliminate food waste while quarantined at home. Which means I’ve been eating a lot of random combinations of things and not really focusing on the foods that make me feel good. So I decided to plan out a week of really clean meals for myself because my body is seriously craving it, and I came up with this tasty chicken sausage sweet potato bake for lunches.
