I just did the exact same thing. I don’t think they’d be for me. Not an offal eater. No tongue, brains, liver, kidneys, sweet breads. Nope can’t do it. Sorry [mention=143904]Tomo[/mention]
Hehehe. I understand. Here is the weird thing, I can't eat liver, kidneys, brain l, any other organ but I can the chitterlings because they aren't dry and weird tasting but I totally understand. I had a feeling i would get interesting reactions to my post. [emoji39]

about to park ourselves on the couch for a couple hours to watch a movie.

no popcorn in the pantry today so movie Snacks will be...CHEESE!

we are a household of cheese lovers and always have a bunch of different ones on hand. this snack plate has feta, sheep cheese with pistachio and a black pepper bellaVitano (my fave of the bunch)

223 calories for the plate. im sharing so not sure yet how much i'll eat.

mmmmm....cheese.

I am also not an offal eater ( had to Google it) but I love to see what people eat even if I don’t. BTW this is basically the same as entrails to me 🤣

well, ill eat anything at least once*.

i do admit i do enjoy liver (pate!), kidney (steak and kidney pie!), beef tongue (ramen!), sweetbread (any way!), and bone marrow (on toast! osso buco!)...dont know if tomalley is considered offel, but i love that stuff too!

there are other things i've tried but cant try again in the near future just cuz i cant get over the idea of it yet (i wont say for the squeamish, lol...sorry if i grossed some out already)

*Edited to add: actually, i just remembered refusing to try something once. we were at an asian night market and there were bbq'd insects for sale. we were dared to eat some sort of GIANT slug/larvae on a stick (cant remember what it was) or sing a kareoke song on the stage...needless to say my singing career was born that night 😂😂😂😂

For super hot and sour lovers only. My go to Soup if I have zero calories to spare. The whole thing is 27 cal. If you like spicy, it is really good. I often add napa cabbage in it. It has konjac noodles which have super low calories, zero carbs and are a Water soluble Fiber (great health benefits for cleaning the tummy), peanuts, red pepper spice... Etc. I buy it at Yami buy (online Asian store). It's called Kon jac spicy and sour noodles by Mingzhu.

I ate about 3/4. I can down a lot of Soup in general ... 20221115_224023.jpg.7bc428615c88bcd3e74317417e53c337.jpg

This sounds amazing and like hot and sour Soup but spicier with noodles. I make my own hot and sour soup at home when we aren’t ordering Chinese food so I’m sure I could make something similar.

And then the kids made gingerbread houses!

Lunch- baked salmon with sautéed mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and peppers.

And then dinner- cucumbers, tomatoes, and thinly sliced onions in red wine vinegar

3 mins for boneless thighs/legs (5 for breasts) on a trivet on high pressure in an instant pot followed by 12 mins natural release. perfect succulent chicken every single time.

(lessen the release time if you want to cook further in a sauce or if u want to broil it for a crispier outside)

outside of instant pot i rarely get the cook just right!

It was yummy. Two pieces real sourdough bread (San Francisco style, 2 oz 130 cal) with 1 oz pepperjack cheese (110 cal), 0.4 oz pepperoni (52 cal). Ate it all.

had my three girl friends over fir Christmas drinks & catch up. I always over cater & now my fridge is overflowing with leftovers. Sigh! Also have leftover bottles of champagne too which I don’t mind about. Made a baked Brie (baked with quince paste, vino cotto & served with toasted walnuts & fresh thyme). So delicious. Bought mushroom & fete, & spinach & feta quiche slices & some salads from Botanica who specialise in gluten free & vegetarian foods & vegan salads. (Did you discover them when you lived here @ms.sss?). The coffee pavlova with coffe cream & coffee drizzle was made by one of my girlfriends & another made the fruit salad. (Forgot to take some of the pxts before we started eating so they’re partially devoured.)

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
