  • Now for the tricky part

    I made it back from the trip in good order. The eating was mostly primal, though VERY uninspiring. To combat the desire to 'treat' myself, now that I am home, I am going to make delicious meats for all my meals today. As soon as I finishing tying this, I'm off to the store to buy pork butt for those carnitas Mark posted last week.

    To catch up, here's Thursday:

    Up at 5:30

    9:00 pork chop with mornay sauce
    1C greens gratin

    2:30 salmon patty with artichoke mayo

    5:30 4 coconut chicken tenders with BBQ sauce
    broccoli with feta, olives, yellow peppers, and onion

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 60"

    Bed at 10:30

    And Friday:

    Up at 5:30

    9:00 1C greens gratin
    1 bratwurst
    1 egg + 2 yolks, fried in
    butter

    1:30 1 1/2 plates sashimi
    seaweed salad
    rice

    6:30 pathetically tiny green salad with ranch dressing
    turkey medallion with bacon
    3/4C cauliflower, squash, carrots
    1/2C mashed potato with gravy
    (This was a banquet dinner. I had NO rolls, or cheesecake, so I'll take a pass on the mp&g.)

    9:00 apple

    Water: 9 glasses

    Bed at 10:00

    And now yesterday:

    Up at 6:00

    7:30 innards from a Burger King sandwich: sausage, egg thing, cheese, bacon
    1C greens gratin from home

    12:30 double burger, no bun with
    avocado
    sauteed mushrooms
    swiss cheese
    mayo/mustard/ketchup
    sweet potato fries

    4:45 lukewarm chunk of sausage with
    dry sauerkraut
    1/2 pickle
    apple lara bar

    6:30 2 coco-chocs with macadamia nuts( These and the cold greens in the morning were the only things I really enjoyed.)

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 90"

    Bed at 8:00

    Getting ready for walking around campus on Saturday, I discovered that I had forgotten my PANTS! I will leave you to imagine how I resolved this situation without being arrested.

    • I like your bracelet, Winencandy. Does it deflect bullets, too?

      • Mmmm carnitas. I finally gave in and made them yesterday. They will be a regular addition to my menu for some time, I suspect.

        How was the college visit? Especially without pants...

        • Sabine, I wish you were my chef! Sauces, I need to work on my sauce knowledge! My hubs would love that! I have the joy of cooking, so I guess I will pull that out.

          I want a bracelet now too. I have a ton, maybe I should just begin wearing one and attach the significance to it. Maybe one that was my grandmother's.

          • Vicious fish attack

            My plan for today was to eat yummy special food, so that I would nip any urge for 'treating myself' leftover from the trip firmly in the bud. Breakfast and dinner worked out, lunch: not so much.

            My Honey saw whole tilapia at the store, so we had those for lunch, which would have been fine had the fillets turned out anything like the size of fillets from the fish counter. No, whole tilapia as presented at our store, are TINY. I got only a morsel of fish, and in order to get it, I had to wrestle with fins and spines, and scales. The fish rammed me underneath one of my fingernails. Very painful. Next time, I'll buy the fillets.

            Here's how the day went:

            Up at 6:30

            9:30 8oz steak with
            horseradish
            1 egg + 1 yolk fried in
            butter

            2:00 small amount of tilapia
            1C broccoli with feta
            3 coco-chocs(to make up for the fish)

            6:00 pork carnitas with
            cheese
            sour cream
            guacamole
            salsa verde

            Water: 7 glasses
            Walking: 20"

            Bed at 9:30

            I only had a small bowl of the carnitas, with about 2T each of all the add-ons. Very moderate for me, but goodness! I was stuffed. Those carnitas are very rich and filling.

            Today I am feeling a little down. Having teenagers is a tough time. Lots of challenging items on my to-do list. Guess I have to just pull up my Big Girl Panties and get to it.

            But first, a nice breakfast of eggs, greens, and bratwurst!

            • Sorry you're having a rough day. I hope things ease up soon.

              Looks like you had a nice weekend, despite the dietary constraints. How was the college visit?

              • Sauce adventures

                The visit was good. It was the second one to a campus we have seen before. I like it better after having been there a second time. Starting to feel more at ease with the idea of MY BABY maybe going there.

                Remains to be seen if I am over my glumness. But I have a fun day with a friend planned, s even if I am glum, I won't have time to notice. I will be working on my new rug. My project yesterday was more challenging than anticipated, so what with being gone for most of the day today, and wanting a break, I will be choosing something EASY today.

                Here's how the day went:

                Up at 5:30

                9:00 1 egg + 1 yolk fried in butter
                1 bratwurst
                1C greens gratin
                1 coco-choc

                1:15 pork chop with
                mustard-horseradish
                1CbBroccoli with feta, olives, and peppers
                2 coco-chocs

                7:15 chicken
                sauteed onions
                lettuce and tomato salad with
                italian dressing
                1 fried banana
                6 clouds

                Water: 8 glasses

                Oh, and mornay sauce does NOT reheat. Only make what you can eat right then. Nor is it good cold. Now I need to find some Marsala wine, for the next recipe. I have no idea what I can substitute, should my efforts be unsuccessful. No luck so far at the two stores I usually go to. Perhaps I should consult Winencandy. I do still have that leftover white stuff...hmmm...went to look at the label... it is Pinot Grigio. Need to look these up, and see if they are in the same ballpark.

                • Dog news

                  Chica has been picked up by the neighbor again. He says he has two companions for her: Shih Tzu puppies. I hope he fixes the fence, because I really cannot have three extra dogs at my house. At least when grown, they will be bigger, and might not be able to squeeze out. I am glad she will have company. She'll love bossing those puppies around.

                  Yesterday:

                  Up at 5:30

                  9:00 1C greens gratin
                  1 egg + 2 yolks, fried in
                  butter
                  1 bratwurst

                  2:00 steak with horseradish and A-1
                  1/2C broccoli
                  lettuce and tomato with italian dressing

                  4:30 lox with
                  cream cheese and capers
                  2 coco-chocs

                  6:00 chicken salad with grapes, celery, almonds, mayo
                  slice of quiche

                  Water: 9 glasses
                  Walking: not much

                  Bed at 10:00

                  I think the need for more food in the afternoon was a direct result of not enough fat during lunch. After I ate those coco-chocs I was in fine fettle. Ate at 6:00 for dinner, but just had a token amount.

                  Now I am off to watch Downton Abbey with a friend.

                  • I always get a little sad when Chica's family comes back for her. Why don't they just leave her with you?!?!

                    • Sabine, you've got to be the nicest person in the world to take in a neighbor's dog, care for it, love it, and then give it back whenever they feel like they want a dog again. I wish you lived near me; I wouldn't put my mutts off on ya, I'd just give you lots of hugs

                      • Jenn, that's what I want to know!

                        Judy, it gets harder each time. But odds are she'll be back soon. I can't imagine them suddenly becoming more attentive owners. And I haven't seen any fence repair going on, either. Thanks for the forum hugs- those are great.

                        • I get sad about Chicca going back there too.

                          • I feel like I should be sending you some bags of dog food for the three extra dogs you're going to have soon! Why on earth would such a person get two new puppies?

                            • As to that, I'm wondering how she will do going back to kibble. I feed her raw food when she is over here, as I do our dogs, and she LOVES it. The dachshunds won't even touch the occasional dog biscuit they are offered (at the vet and the bank drive-thru) but Chica still enjoys them, so I guess she'll be able to switch back. Right?

                              If all three of them start coming over, I'm going to have to figure out another strategy. I CANNOT have FIVE dogs!

                              Can I?

                              Middlest got to the core of the matter (I am afraid) when she immediately asked 'A boy and a girl?' I fear even more Shih-Tzu's may be in store in the coming year.

                              • Oh crap Maybe they are planning to breed them.
                                Hope Chicca doesn't have more puppies too.

                                She shouldn't be too bothered by the raw food only at your place since she will know its much better
