  • Food talk

    I have beef stock bubbling away, and strawberries drying in the dehydrator, and plans to make up a new batch of greens gratin today. Plus patties for the dogs. They had rib bones to chew on yesterday, and were very happy about it. I bought some sweetbreads yesterday, to have this weekend, and I'll be throwing some of them into the patties, instead of liver. They are benefitting from this 'more organs' kick as well.

    By the way, I do not like liver pate. I do not like it hot, I do not like it cold. I do not like it on toast, or one week old. (Just kidding- I didn't have toast.) I will have to find some other way to sneak liver into me. Rumaki will be my next attempt.

    I made the Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole yesterday, which was good, and fun to make (great sauce) but not as amazing as I expected from the comments. Just a good, basic casserole. I will definitely make it again, just not right away.

    My food plans for my retreat next weekend are solidifying. To share, I am bringing: meatballs with a primal dipping sauce, greens gratin, devilled eggs, and a cheese plate. For myself alone I am bringing extra eggs so I can have my Triclops, coco-chocs with macadamias, and liverwurst. When we go out, I will have fish or steak, and salad. I may bring along my own blue cheese dressing. I am NOT bringing chocolates for 'snacking' or 'treating myself'. The retreat is the treat. If I need a mental break, I will take a walk around the block, or go upstairs to do some dry skin brushing. I will NOT mindlessly shovel chocolate into my mouth.

    Yesterday worked out pretty well. I had a slight desire to eat something in the afternoon, but it was brought on by cooking the sauce for CCBC and taste testing, and I was able to recognize it for what it was, and just wait for dinner.

    Up at 5:00

    12:00 Triclops
    1C greens gratin
    1 wurst
    2 coco-chocs

    5:45 Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole with
    chicken, ham, cheeses, cauliflower, cream, onion, mushrooms
    1/2C cucumber salad
    1/2C sliced strawberries

    Water: 11 glasses
    Walking: nope

    Bed at 10:30

    Now I am trying to decide which of my chores I need to tackle first, and not feeling very enthusiastic about any of them. What I really want to do is twine my rug and watch the ending of 'Alias'. Oh well, better go be a grown up first!

      I do this, too. I always try to ask myself, 'is this helpful in any way besides relieving your feelings?' Too often, the answer is 'no'. Of course, every one slips sometimes!

          • Nice page to read today I sort of feel the same way with my mom.

            A retreat sounds like a great idea. I'm pretty certain that with the way things are about to get at work that I'm going to need one soon.

              I don't touch the taxes! The thought sends me running for cover! I am NOT that brave

              • what is a coco-choc?

                • Oh! Coco-chocs! Little fat morsels of goodness.

                  Winencandy developed them. One part chocolate to two parts coconut oil. Melt together and pour into molds or little paper cups. A good way to get a bump of coconut oil. I started with all semi-sweet chocolate, but now I mix my chocolate 2 parts straight unsweetened baking chocolate to 1 part semi-sweet. I also have been adding chopped up macadamia nuts to mine lately. In the past, I have done little globs of almond butter in the centers: divine!

                    I did almost all of my chores. Only clearing the papers off the counter left. I think that's pretty good. Plus, I did some walking, which wasn't even on the list! One bacon point awarded. No twining was done, though.

                    Rather vexing conversation with my Honey this morning. We just think differently about some things. I will NOT eat for stress relief. The possible future problem will not be any easier to deal with if I am fatter and feeling like crap.

                    Here's what I did yesterday:

                    Up at 5:45

                    9:45 catfish fried in
                    coconut oil
                    1C greens gratin
                    artichoke mayo
                    1 coco-choc

                    2:00 Cordon Bleu Chicken Casserole
                    2 coco-chocs

                    6:30 chicken fajita meat
                    sour cream
                    cheddar-lots!
                    salsa
                    1/2C blackberries

                    Water: 9 glasses
                    Walking: 35"

                    Bed at 9:30

                    The chicken meat was from one of those pre-marinated packs, and it tasted decidedly chemically to me. Guess it is time to strike that from our shopping list, and make my own. I meant to have 3 coco-chocs with breakfast, but after ten minutes of waiting, I decided one would do.

                      I have been telling myself ^this a lot lately. Sounds like you have it under control, lady. Keep taking care of yourself.

                      • Thanks, Pebbles. I sure am trying.

                        • Good for you Sabine - "The possible future problem will not be any easier to deal with if I am fatter and feeling like crap." That little line has so much to it doesn't it?! I say it all the time but it doesn't seem to prevent me from grabbing the chocolate or nuts ... hopefully you will inspire me to be grownup today and do what is going to feel awesome - in the long run! Long term goals not immediate gratification .....

                            • Yes, and you know, the discussion was about a long-term goal versus immediate gratification in real life.

                              I would be a hypocrite if I advocated for the long-term goal there, and then, when it was denied, immediately crammed myself with some immediate gratification! I think it will help me, if I keep that in mind. There's nothing like a smug sense of moral superiority to make it easier to stick to a course of action.

                              • I am making some coco-chocs using ONLY unsweetened baking chocolate. After I poured the mix into the cups, I took a swipe of the plain mixture. YOWZA! We'll see how it takes in solid form. The good part: if it is a fail, I can melt it down and just add some semi-sweet.
