I make a mean strawberry meringue cake (technically a Dacquoise, but i feel like “dacquoise” just doesn’t sound yummy, lol)…layers of nut meringue between layers of a whipped cream-mascarpone mixture and strawberries.

I'd love to have your recipe if you're willing to share it, @ms.sss. (I love dacquoise, and think everything about it is yummy, including the word.) Yours looks fabulous!

Of course. Recipe is below…you can sub some or all of the sugar with a low cal sweetener (I sometimes use swerve or monk fruit…me nor fam can tell the difference). The original recipe actually called for almost double the amount of sugar/sweetener that I’m using below…I have made this a number of times with varying amounts of sugar to find what we think is “sweet enough”…so you like it sweeter, just add more sugar in any of the various elements.

Also, here are a couple pics of ones I’ve made before for reference of what it looks like before cut into…yum, right?!?! Lol

Recipe here: Strawberry Meringue Cake.pdf

P.s.I’ve also subbed the strawberries with peaches, chocolate, and lemon curd, all quite successful…but strawberries remain our fave.

p.p.s. …and can swap out the almonds for basically any nut..I added some ground sesame seeds last time and it was delicious.

Defrosted one of my frozen meals last night. Truely a mystery meal. Couldn’t remember what it was & hadn’t written on the bag. Turned out to be ginger pork tenderloin stir fry. Looks a bit sad but was zingy with ginger. Looks more but it was about 1.5 cups which I ate over an hour.

I'm freezing a lot of Soups lately - Isn't it great to just have dinner already prepared! Like this wedding Soup with chicken meatballs and spinach.

A mini charcuterie board, lol!

grapes, carrots, peppered salami, jalapeño havarti, truffle cheddar, and plain old cheddar. With some blue cheese dip on the side (i looooove blue cheese): 367 calories.

Totally intend to eat it all while i binge watch my latest series du jour (Outlander, lol…dont judge me!)

Bobby's first snow experience! He's a Florida boy... Turkey chili tonight. Come on over - plenty to share! 6 - 8 inches fell today. I'm afraid we are sending the storm north.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
