Brussel Sprouts, Vidalia Onion, and Button Mushrooms. A drizzle of Olive Oil, dash of Salt, couple grinds of fresh Pepper, and one pinch of Anise Seed. The Anise is a secret ingredient that livens up Brussel Sprouts, but only the cook should know for sure what that extra awesome taste is.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes, a step down from my usual Heart Attack Potatoes. Potatoes skin on, of course, because it is healthier and I am lazy. Golden Potatoes, a clove of Garlic, minced. When everything is done boilng, I'll add a couple tablespoons of real butter and Greek Yogurt. Heart Attacks get Sour Cream and the heaviest Cream I have on hand, Whipping Cream is keeno.
Dawned on me about an hour ago that this one meal I would never cook for Kath. Sex Goddesses don't eat onions. I'm simmering all this in cheap white wine. I am skipping over the thoughts of Buttermilk Gravy. I'll add some potato water and gluten free Chicken Base, then when it starts a 'simmering, I'll thicken it with Corn Starch. It's about time to mash the 'taters. . .
Don't you know I forgot all about making the Macintosh Applesauce! Maybe next year.
My obnoxious friend Dave has a cute little ditty dedicated to the big red button on his garbage disposal. It starts out as a lament because his garbage disposal suddenly dies, but the ending is upbeat because the beloved appliance comes to life again by way of reset button.
Hoping the 'before' and 'after' effect is fairly evident.
Mom's due home tomorrow and I am counting this as a huge blessing. I'd be serving tea and crumpets except crumpets aren't my cup of tea.
Yes, I am admitting it full force here. I am a hypocrite when it comes to doctoring. No biggie since I have it on good authority that holding two opposing ideas simultaneously is a sign of intelligence. F. Scott Fitzgerald is that particular authority.
Thing one. "Do as I say, not as I do" is the definition of hypocrisy I formed when I was a child. Thing two. "A physician who treats himself has a fool for a patient." said William Osler. Thing three, "Do as I say and not as I do" I have redefined as wisdom through experience.
One of things I'd really like to put on the DUN! list being poisoned with food. It would truly tickle me to find a doctor nearly as knowledgeable about Celiac and Non-Celiac as I am. One who actually takes my insurance and who doesn't close her practise minutes after I sign on as a patient.
If you don't dream they can't come true
