Making Beef Stew right now, but it's for Sunday's dinner. Had a roast beef sandwich tonight

Oh my. It's fucken good. Will be even better on Sunday after reheating in the crock pot for a couple hours. I got bread bowls to serve it in, too.

I'd post a picture, but it looks gross.... Like beef Stew.

Fried chicken tenders and mac and cheese.

Funny story. I went to the bar on Saturday. Ordered food. And left. I forgot to pay my tab AND forgot my food. I go in today to pay and...THEY SAVED MY FOOD! Who does that?? I was so excited

Round of applause to LJ - that looks so fine I'd actually move to America for it.
(Had chowder that way in the States. Didn't eat again for 36 hours)

bbro - please tell me there was alcohol involved? I'd hate to think you were going the same way as my Dad. Saying that, I actually lost the toilet paper in my flat last night, so I'm not one to talk.

I lost my phone charger in my one-up-one-down house. Then found it - still plugged in to the socket behind the telly.


Yesterday,for dinner, I had the second half of a back-of-the-cupboard broth. I'd made it the day before - and it is always nicest second day.

Back-of-the-cupboard broth consisted of:

1 x distressed onion
2 x betentacled potatoes
2 x weary-looking carrots
6 exhausted runner beans
100 grams or so from the big bag of free-flo frozen mince
salt, pepper, dry mixed herbs and a beef stock cube
pint of water
teaspoon of raspberry jam.


For such an uninspiring list of ingredients, it made for a couple of very tasty meals. With buttered wholemeal bread and a spoon of pickled red cabbage.

It's one of my favourite meals actually. I like it because, aside from being delicious, it uses up odds and sods of veg that would otherwise get chucked out. So it feels almost like eating for free, and also makes me feel good about not wasting food - which I am getting better at but still not good enough. On those occasions when I buy a big bag of carrots or potatoes because they're on special offer, I usually end up chucking the last quarter of the bag. Same with most perishable foods - if I buy a lot of it, I eat my way through so much of it then have to throw the last bit. Hence I felt slightly triumphant that my last purchase of veg was almost entirely consumed, all but about five mushrooms anyway.

I lose things all the time, so it's nothing new, but in this instance, yes, there was a large amount of whiskey involved

I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

I am so stoked. I just cooked some of my 3 week dry aged venison. OMG. It is so tender it cuts like butter. My tastebuds are touching themselves.

A wise sage once told me there are three things you will never find in this life; The perfect dry martini, a hooker that does it with real feeling, and your lost innocence.

Old food, however, is readily at hand.

Last time I'm saying it. Veggie - two weeks. Tonight, I'm making either falafel (going to try to bake it, maybe) or ravioli gnudi. I think it will depend on how much effort I feel like making.

Bbro, I always used to bake my falafel. A tiny dab of butter on the top before cooking and you get the crisp outside and flavour, with none of the greasiness.

So. This is part of my hospital experience, so feel free to ignore.
Once I'd got past the incompetence (another thread, another time - left without food for over 30 hours despite being diagnosed with malnutrition) I had yummy yum yums for five days.
Delivered to me, no washing up, good times. They wanted to keep me in over the weekend, and usually I'd have been SO up for that, but I wanted to spend Mother's Day with my Mum, and my coach was booked for Saturday morning.

Anyway.

First meal was very poor. I'm (apparently) not supposed to eat processed meat. Sausages, bacon, HAM. What was left after they realised I was actually on the ward, two hours after lunch, four hours after I was transferred? Ham salad or ham salad sandwich.

This was my tea though. I had to have what was leftover, as I wasn't on the ward when the meal request sheets were completed. Lasagne. Looks like a mess, but I was that hungry I nommed it down. 30 hours with no food means you don't even question why lasagne has carrots in it. And blueberry tart with custard.

I was told to eat everything, as well as having high carb, high fibre shakes three times a day. So I did.

My starter the next day. Minestrone. Lunch starters always included soup, and yet evening (dinner) starters were always fruit juice. Odd.

Jacket potato with beans & cheese. Sod Atkins - I'm supposed to eat carbs. I've never really stopped that aspect, but it was reiterated. My liver damamge is somehow a factor. Dunno - I don't need an excuse tbh.

Steak and kidney pie. I ordered it with peas and carrots. They ran out of carrots. See above re I don't care. I love me some peas.

Looks better than hospital food on this side of the pond.
