My kids “mystery box” ‘ed me tonight, so this was dinner- cheesy stuffing waffles (crispy, delicious… recommend), air fryer buttermilk chicken legs, Caesar roasted broccoli, balsamic cucumber and Tomato salad. I also used about a tbsp of BBQ Sauce for my chicken leg

Gonna use the leftover waffles for Breakfast sandwiches this week

Waffles recipe - 1tbsp butter, 1/2 onion finely diced, box of stovetop or similar stuffing mix, 2 eggs, 4oz cheese, vegetable broth to moisten

Sautéed onion. In butter until lightly browned. Add a bit of broth to get up any goodness in the bottom of the pan. Pour into bowl with stuffing mix

Preheat waffle maker

blend eggs with cheese until smooth. Mix into stuffing mix. Add broth until soupy. Don’t worry. After it sits a few minutes it thickens. I think I used 3 cups for 2 boxes.

spray waffle maker and scoop in stuffing mix. Used about a cup a waffle. Cook for 6-8 minutes until crispy and delicious.

This is the only time I miss bread. An egg & lettuce sandwich or a cucumber sandwich, on white bread, are heavenly. I used to soak my cucumbers in balsamic vinegar for an hour or so before.

Mmm? Now I’m wondering if it’s worth the groaning & complaining tummy & general blah feeling of eating bread just to have one of them.

Totally not worth it 😝

I couldn’t always tolerate bread (and I still don’t eat soft breads) but over time it’s become easier.

I like cucumbers soaked in sesame oil and lime

jumped on the focaccia train the other day...

clockwise from top left: (1) brie, honey, walnut, pear (2) everything bagel seasoning (3) garlic confit and rosemary (4) roasted grape, goat cheese and honey

(the brie one got a little too melty and caramelized, but the others turned out well lol)

Tea sandwiches? Do you mean finger sandwiches like you’d have at a high tea? Oh, just googled it. They are the same.

Can’t say I’d blame you @GreenTealael. cheese waffles just sound wrong. Don’t get the savoury waffle thing.

I can literally smell this through my screen! The look amazing.

Do you struggle with who eats the food you make?

This looks amazing! What is in the cinnamon broth (besides cinnamon of course)?

    • Alisa_S

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

    • OhMyGawdItzKla

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

      2. OhMyGawdItzKla

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
