Just the holes?

Today I ate a cheese omelette, yesterday's saag paneer, and had chips and revolting fishcakes for tea.

Yeah, that's how they sell them in the US. Not sure what you have in the UK.


Aha.

No, we're still stuck in a state of semi-civilisation, so no-one has yet thought of selling the holes in donuts as a separate item ;)

And people say Americans are wasteful. ;)

Lunch was beef and barley soup, and a sandwich of chedder, pickles, and salad cream on toasted whole wheat. Plus a Tasty Kake cherry pie.

You say that, but I've just learned that what we are now doing is mushing them all together, letting them grow mouldy, then carving busby-shaped chunks off and giving them to the Brigade of Guards to wear instead of bearskins.

In other news, I have just eaten a microwaveable Rustler burger, which was just as delicious as you'd expect, and some tinned fruit.

Breakfast and lunch were both (unsweetened) applesauce. Dinner and tomorrow's meals may well be the same. Because despite all the stories of folks who tried "Whole 30" and had various health issues turn out to be food-related and clear up, I'm still getting sick regularly. :/

Unsweetened applesauce again.

Here's hoping the bus ride home doesn't turn into a long walk home.

Heh. Thanks.

Icky stuff:

I have some sort of chronic digestive problem that results in abrupt and urgent needs for a toilet (to the point that I can't make a 25-minute commute to work via bus because I might have to make a stop, and buses don't wait). I've identified several trigger foods (or even trigger ingredients), but despite dozens of hours of research, some medical consultations/examinations, and some super-strict dietary experimentation; I still have not reached a point where if I just do XYZ then I can be normal. I think I might just... be broken? It's like every day I have to make a couple Fort saves, and certain foods impose penalties, but I always have to roll the saves regardless, and that means sometimes I'll roll a 1.

For the rest of my life, as far as I can tell. :/


Early: baguette with olives baked in, five hot dog sausages, and a small sweet yogurt with fruit jam inside (though I forgot to stir it up before reaching the bottom).

Later: Two corn cobs.


Jiggy, could that be lactose/milk intolerance? Lots of products contain lactose this days, even ones you would not connect to milk in the first place.

Dairy's already been on the trigger list for years, but thanks anyway. Also, on the topic of milk ambushes, I actually find whey to be more commonly "sneaking" into ingredient lists than lactose; I've seen it in everything from taco seasoning to fried rice to ramen.

Today was ground turkey (seasoned with salt, coriander, thyme, and ground mustard seed) on top of potatoes (mashed with salt and olive oil).

Hoisin tuna salad with English muffin:

Recipe:
  • 1 6 oz can tuna in water
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp hoisin sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
Drain off water from tuna.* Combine tuna and remaining ingredients in bowl, mix well. Serve on split toasted English muffins, or use in a tuna melt.

* Pour tuna water over roughly-crumbled leftover biscuit or bread slice, or over 3/4 cup leftover rice. Serve to pet cats as treat.

Today's lunch was chicken skillet-fried in olive oil and oregano (and I think another seasoning or two) with cabbage. Except I didn't eat the cabbage, as I was already hurting and lost my nerve.

Leftovers from a nameless dish I cooked last night after going grocery shopping at Walmart. It's kind of a soup, made with shredded beef, broccoli (both crowns, and the diced up stem), shredded carrots, diced up green bell peppers, large white mushrooms diced up, a bottle of sweet & sour sauce mixed with honey (the bee kind), peppers, and some salt. Everything is cooked at more or less the same time until everything gets nice and soft. Stirred occasionally.

I ran out of ramen noodles last night, but it goes very good over some plain white ramen noodles (cook until they get soft and springy but not mushy, then quickly drain and place into a bowl or on a plate, then douse in the soupy vege-mix).

Right now I'm eating it in a bowl while writing spells down. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite things to eat. Pondering ways to modify it, I bet if I got some beans (either crispy beans like field peas, or maybe southern jarred greenbeens from our garden) and added them that would be effective. Water chestnuts would probably go well with it too.

Lesco. Sort of. Peppers, onions, tomatoes, some meat, stewed together.

Just before noon, had a perfectly-ripened nectarine that was sublime.

Got hungry again (duh) at 2PM, so I dipped into the hurricane supplies for a can of tuna and made hoisin tuna salad again with onion-poppyseed hamburger bun.

Minor tweaking of recipe:
Reduced mayo to 2-1/2 tbsp; added 1 tsp sriracha and 1/2 tsp citrus-ginger seasoning. Better, but still a bit too sweet. Probably reduce hoisin a bit, maybe add a splash of soy sauce.

Edit: Out of spicy pickles, but saving pickle juice to brine some chicken, try out this recipe.

Whatever was in the fridge.


Slice of whitebread wrapped around two pieces of leftover Sunday morning bacon, and a mozzarella cheese stick.

Er, no. No, definitely not that last one. Definitely not. I have no idea where you got such a weird idea. Nope. Not a single clue. And this is certainly not a suspiciously copious and excessive denial, that's for sure.

Nope.

Not. At. All.

Did you go through the gut flora medical tests? I think that having beneficial gut bacteria replaced with less benign can give symptoms similar to what you described, depending upon exact bacteria...

I've been under the impression that gut flora issues tend to be acute in nature, rather than persisting for ten years straight. Is that not the case?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Based on a hearsay that I, well, heard, not necessarily. I have no idea how accurate or inaccurate statement that was, it was from someone who was being treated for gut flora problems at that time, and I got impression that those were persistent problems, not acute, though nowhere near ten years straight. More like months, maybe a year or two.

Chicken "salad" with small leftover dinner roll and 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced. Chicken salad tasted like it was missing something.

Experimental chicken 'salad' recipe:
  • 1 5 oz can chunked chicken packed in water
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1-1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp citrus-ginger seasoning (this or similar)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • small bunch of fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste

Combine everything but chicken and pistachios in bowl, mix well, let sit at least 5-10 minutes for dried spices to re-hydrate a bit. Drain off water from chicken.* Crush pistachios well (but not completely pulverize) with meat tenderizer mallet or rolling pin. Add chicken and pistachios to bowl, mix well. Serve on split toasted English muffins or split hoagie roll.

Serves 1

* Pour chicken water over roughly-crumbled leftover biscuit or bread slice, or over 3/4 cup leftover rice. Serve to pet cats (dogs too, maybe?) as treat.

Muffin-burgers.

It sounds more like a particularly exotic sexual act than a meal, but nonetheless, that's what I ate - a beefburger, in a muffin.

English muffin or muffin muffin?

We don't have English muffins in England.

Just a standard muffin, to the best of my knowledge.

Ah. This muffin then, not the desert-y sweet muffin?

Yeah, the former muffin is a superb platform for a sandwich, especially when made of sourdough. They are great for making mini pizzas.
