Adventures in cooking [Aug. 26th, 2010|12:31 pm]
Zoethe
At the grocery store: blueberry Stilton, Stilton with lemon zest, cherry Stilton. Just Stilton? "Gosh, we've never heard of that." WTF??!!

Dinner tonight: stuffed peppers three ways. Because I am over-influenced by cooking shows? No, because I have to make the stuffing without peppers for Ferrett, and the peppers without meat for Erin's friend Meaghan. There will be a lot of pots and pans tonight.

Breakfast tomorrow: "I don't want the carbs of a bagel - I'll be bloated for trying on wedding dresses. Can we have oatmeal instead?" O...kay, sweetie, what do you think oatmeal is made of?

I don't know if you all like soy meat, but I make my stuffed peppers with saffron rice and the boca or morningstar meat crumbles. Deelishus.

Not a fan of soy, but thanks for the thought!

He does not like bell peppers in any form, not most other peppers. All he gets from them is bitterness.

And I am completely baffled by people who don't get that carbs are carbs!

Ferrett is quite wise. Bell peppers are pure evil.

You could stuff tomatoes for him, but those have much less structural integrity and fall apart at the slightest touch.

Hmm. Okay, he's only half wise then. ;-)

I used to like bell peppers but after leaving for college they started tasting nasty. Not sure what changed.

I used to love olives and now find them overwhelming and kind of nasty. It happens.

i've noted that a lot of things i used to like i don't any more and vice versa. i think our tastebuds fizzle or something with age.

My father told me when I was younger that your taste buds are entirely replaced every seven years by new ones (albeit gradually, not all at once), which is why many peoples tastes will change over time.

I heard somewhere along the way that every cell in our body is replaced every seven years. I have no idea. lol

Yeah, should have a talk with some of those dietician sorts who keep spreading that rumor around...

See, I learned from my registered dieticians (I had 3 in total) and in my nutrition classes, that whole grain cereals were ok with diabetes (since you still do need carbs). No sugar ones and I forgot how many gs of fiber per serving. And it had to be real whole grains, not 'with whole grains' that really was processed crap with a bit of nutty grains sprinkled on top. But as you know, YMMV with your own condition, and nutritionists, and whatever. But it's not weird for someone to think that whole grain cereal (and some wheat breads) are acceptable, since people are being educated that they are.

just a suggestion - but my parents recently tried quinoa (or however you spell it, but it's pronounced 'keen-wah'), and Dad reported that it had basically no effect on his blood sugar. well, maybe not none - but he has a huge reaction to rice and a moderate one to pasta, so he dosed like he was eating pasta and it was way too much.

oatmeal doesn't carry as many carbs as a bagel though. oatmeal works to actually lower your blood sugar. bagels, not so much; they shoot my glucose through the roof.

I found this out about oatmeal because my sugar was through the roof not long ago and I Googled to see what foods naturally lower glucose. And found oatmeal. LOL

imo the lemon zest stilton is THE best. You can keep the rest, they're sort of "eh." Of course, those ehs are the ones my store has the most, hardly ever the lemon zest, despite my imploring and bribing tactics.

That's as may be, but this is for a recipe that is savory!
