Since I need to v=cut back on salt - there goes most of Schwan's frozen food.
So far I want them to buy me the following to start with.
Bone-in pork chops
Salmon and Halibut perhaps.
I so miss the South Bay. Especially Redondo Beach Pier and the Farmers Market on La Cienega(?)
Yesterday I made a ground beef spaghetti sauce.
Used 1/2 large can of diced seasoned tomatoes. 1 can tomato paste and 1 small can tomato sauce.
Had cooked the ground beef with a touch of olive oil - strained the grease off
Added diced onion, bell pepper and garlic till all soft.
Added Herbs, Oregano, Marjoram, Basil, etc.
Worcestershire sauce, S&P,
Added canned tomatoes stirred well
Once mixed added liquids and 1.5 cups of h2o
Stirred well and simmered till done.
Cooked up some Angel Hair and had a plate full with grated parm. etc.
Lots of leftover sauce.
I will use on scrambled eggs. On other pastas and where I want. lol
I did do the pork chops in marinade but I don't like them. No matter what I do they cook up tough thus grocery store chops.
The cuts are odd and I suspect they may have stored them in a brine. Oh well.. need to stop buying from them anyway.
I do like their LiveSmart foods - veggies and fruit. Some of their bread is good. But I find myself buying more from Imperfect foods.
I had eggs and 1 slice bacon one morning, another was 2 pork sausages the thin skinny ones not the patties. I will stick with 1 slice of bacon a week.
I cooked up 4 large red potatoes and have made a small serving of Potato salad, fried potatoes with the eggs and mashed the last two.
I have been so distraught and unable to gather my wits lately, due to a number of situations.
I had thought things were improving but apparently not yet.
Meals are bits and pieces of things. Although I am working on breakfast and dragging out my box of instant oatmeal and adding spices and berries...not my fave breakfast. I haven't made much french toast or pancakes and I am so very tired of waffles.
I find I am letting Charlie out alone for a bit by himself - I'm in the doorway. I just don't have the desire to get up and going like I did. I am so overwhelmed with all the STUFF projects in the house. Don't ask.
I do eat meals they are just odd combos. When there is a warm day I feel much better. I know it's my MS and now my Thyroid plus the tendonitis all adding to my off kilter emotions.
Well, that's enough - I am eager to see the bloodwork results. Hopefully I can gain some weight. Dr K says she will get back to normal.
Wonder what she has in mind? Well until she has the results I am in my own hands.
Ok Charlie is aching to run and play ball. I need to feed All the birds and the squirrels. Then myself.
Maybe those scrambled eggs with sauce I mentioned above.
Take care.. good shopping luck. I know exactly how you feel.
