Well, I had strawberry jam at a restaurant a few months ago. It was house-made, so I didn't know it was strawberry... and in fact, I only figured it out because it was a taste I did not recognize. From one bite of toast with jam, I got half a dozen hives. I don't think I'll risk eating a fresh one any time soon... I'd rather my esophagus did not swell shut any time soon.
I've got two chicken legs in the oven, and rice on the stove. I'd actually prefer potatoes, but was too lazy to peel etc. Bunging rice in a pan is much easier. I've got the day off, so I've been eating all day.
I am alone, Joy. Just because I have another account, it doesn't mean there are two of me ...
Yes, I've got four days off, and have been eating like a pig, too - literally, since there's nobody here to watch me (except Nero, my cat, but she doesn't mind).
I suppose a doctor told the person with the strawberry allergy that they would die if they ate a strawberry, and having been told that, concluded the allergy must be fatal. In their shoes, would you try a strawberry just to find out if you really did have a 'fatal allergy'?
I have had very, very violent reactions to strawberries. When I was a child, my esophagus began to swell shut from eating fresh. And as I said, even a small amount of cooked strawberries (in jam) gives me masses of hives as an adult. I think it's safe to extrapolate from that that enough fresh strawberries would kill me. Or rather, it's not safe not to extrapolate. As Camlo said, would you be testing out where that limit was, if you were me?
we had a guest who always brings the tuna salad and french bread and garden tomatoes and chips for lunch - it was excellent and all I had to do was wash up after! now, where is my cheesecake? I'll make cheesecake sundaes for us!
by the time I get to Germany from California, I am quite sure the cheesecake will be gone. But I bet you all make exquisite cheesecake there. I know German streudles are the very best! oh, I can't afford to feel this hungry all the time!
Normally I love fish, cooked, smoked, dried, salted. Anything. But when I was pregnant I could not stand it. Even a drawing of a fish, even a sign on a store with a word "fish" in it caused a very violent reaction. My stomach would go into convulsions right away! I cannot explain that. By the way, I had broken my sugarless diet in the morning and eat a piece of a chocolate cake. M-m-m-m. What a shame!
mmmmm. . . ever had cheesecake WITH icecream? - any flavor - chocolate is great, it takes it up a couple notches - then you put whipped cream on top and maybe some sprinkles.... if I keep hinting around won't someone show up with some cheesecake? :
I've got two pizza places right opposite me, but they're closed now ... I just put the chicken legs in the oven. I wanted to eat them with potatoes, but am too lazy to peel etc., even too lazy to bung some rice into a pan, so I'll eat them with fattening, white bread. Good thing I never put on weight.
and I can stand by and laugh because I can't get good cheesecake or cheese - and I am not allowed to eat anything that is not good for me by the food police in my house !!! I get to live longer maybe, but without cheescake is it all worth it ?
cheetos - boy, I could really go for a nice bag of cheetos right now - and no, chinaman, life is not worth living without a hefty slice of cheesecake now and then - and who says its not good for you? Of course you shouldn't eat it every day, but its good for you now and then. Life is not only about watching calories and cholesterol - the savoring of yummy things even when they are not the best food value also feeds our spirits! so tell you wife or the food police or whoever to ease up a little and you'll still live longer, but they'll be happier times!
Large, thick, juicy prime rib steak grilled to medium rare and spiced with Hys seasoning salt, mashed potatoes with gravy and a caesar salad....and a tall iced green tea.... ugh, now I have to go to the market and feed this craving!!!
I've often been accused of being arrogant, and it's usually by people who disagree with me about something. I've noticed that some of my favorite historical personages have also been accused of arrogance. What exactly...
