Decided maybe we should have a thread for this instead of my posting "what I just ate" stuff in other threads. So what are we eating today, fam?

For lunch I just sautéed chicken with onions, bell pepper, and brown rice. Coated the pan to start with a couple tsps of avocado oil. Kicked it up a notch with a Tbsp of butter and the usual salt and pepper. A homerun.

I finished off the leftovers of the lousy pickle steak dish last night, good riddance.

Avacado oil, eh? Wanna start some kind of Americana-fusion restaurant?

Avocado oil is very similar to olive oil healthwise but has a higher smoke point, meaning it's easier to cook with than olive oil. The bottle I have is the first avocado oil I have tried. The variety I bought has a very neutral flavor. I read that unrefined avocado oil tastes more avocado-y.

I am sure refined or unrefined feels nice on an anal fissure.

The food here has been shockingly abundant and good.  I had pretty damn good pizza delivery last night, and the night before we made fettuccini with alfredo sauce from scratch. On the weekend, we made french toast with home made strawberry syrup one day, and hash browns and scrambled eggs with sauteed mushrooms the next. I am pretty okay with this.

I had to conduct a Zoom meeting--yeah, that's right; I wasn't just a participant; I was the host--and just before going on I realized that I hadn't eaten anything all day. So I had a handful of my son's M&Ms.

And now I'm so hungry I can barely think straight.

Well I kind of eat really simple at home when I'm making food myself. So my good meals have been UberEats deliveries. Had the last of some baked ziti tonight. Made one of my salads which is basically chopped vegetables. Overall, 4/5 stars.

I've got maybe 35-40 of the plant gloop, and 30 or the so of the Ensure on steroids-type drink. Each one of those little kiddie-sized drink boxes? 477 calories. Of course, I have other cupboards with soups and curries and pastas and such, frozen or chilled fruit and veg and that. I will outlive you all.

I've made some sweetener-free granola (okay, more "toasted oats", with some dried fruit, chipped coconut, seeds, nuts), to add to my morning cereal (a mixture of bran and corn flakes).  I'm also adding chopped apple and sliced bananas to the cereal.

I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day these days.

Because of a this, I have found myself adding celery and carrots to stir fries.  They're cheap, come in bulk, and last a long time in the fridge.

About 20 years ago, I tried olives (green) for the first time. I’ve probably eaten a million of them since, but I’d never tasted a black olive...until tonight. They’re now on the list—along with coffee and shrimp—of things I tried once, and will never consume again. 

Whenever I go for walks I like to have a salad when I get home. Tonight, I went with Kalamata olives, feta cheese and Pepperoncinis. There was probably enough sodium in that salad to kill me but I loved it.

I’m just checking—to make sure that I’m not misreading your post. That was an opinion, right? Not a statement of fact?

But I am curious. How does you staying that they’re good make them taste better to me?

I put tzatziki on chicken fajitas (chicken, peppers, onions, spices). Delicious, but I feel like I have disrespected two cultures with one dish.

Have you ever tried a latte? A few people I know who didn't like coffee, like lattes because it's mostly milk. Soy milk tastes the best.

Have you tried shrimp with cocktail sauce? Cocktail sauce makes a big difference. There should be more ways a person can enjoy cocktail sauce.

I’m not a coffee drinker either, but I bought a bag of David Lynch’s coffee and thought it was very good.

so one thing about having a spouse that's having ongoing panic attacks and neurosis around our current events is that you have to just roll with some of the punches.

Which means we have an external freezer filled to the brim now with various meats.  Which is awesome because I can do things like make 'brisket' tacos out of an entire prime roast just because. 

Sauteed onions/carrots/celery, added red wine and reduced, braised roast and added to veggies, pressure cooked for 35 min, cooled then diced the whole thing and recombobulated it all with its natural gravy in a pan - pour onto toasted tortillas with a slice of avocado and it's the best fucking brisket(like) tacos ever.

Oh, did you really? Did you really just KICK IT UP A NOTCH??? Tell us more, Guy Fieri! Do you THROW DOWN some guacamole on a little loaf of bread and call it THROWDOWN GUAC AND ROLL??? Did you turbo charge it with BATSHIT (GUANO) GUAC-A-LOOGIE SPEWSAUCE? Is this NO SIR NOT YOUR ABUELITO'S GUAC?!?!

Did you then proceed to appropriate black culture with your HIP HOP TATER TOTS? Again?

GTFO.

I just put a tray of tofu in the oven. You can season tofu the same way you season chicken, it has a very similar texture when baked. I used extra firm tofu, not pressed. There is a pressing and freezing method that people use so that it is exactly like chicken but I can't be bothered with all that, it tastes great baked as is, just slice and coat then bake for 35 min. Three packages lasts almost 2 weeks, I chop it up and put in salads and soups, also perfect for sandwiches.

Nope. I'm just not interested. I'm not searching for ways to to make coffee enjoyable so that I can (somehow) get it into my body.

Coincidentally(?), my siblings don't drink coffee either.

I was suggesting it because you might like it. I don't think coffee is a necessity, though many who like it will argue it is.

So today I park at the grocery store, grab my favorite reusable grocery bag, grab a cart in the lot and throw my bag in, start wheeling it towards the store door, am almost there when a gust of arctic wind picks the bag up out of my cart and blows it ten yards away. Before I can even begin my pursuit, eddies of wind are pulling it this way and that, leading it under and around cars. I begin to shuffle after it like a cartoon hippo, but I know damn well any attempt on my part to run is going to result in my likely death or, at minimum, mild discomfort. So I start to calculate in my mind, How much is this bag worth to me? I can easily afford to buy a new one. I still have two more in the car so I don't even need to buy a new one. But it's my favorite bag! It is brightly colored and still looks new. But it's just a bag. But would I be an asshole for letting my garbage go into the wild? While I am going through this thought process and plodding after the bag, it heads towards a car whose driver stops and opens his door to make a grab at it, but sadly the bag makes a zig and a zag and is again on its merry way. Thanks for the gesture, stranger. About this time I notice out of the corner of my eye a pair of buskers I had not previously noticed. They are playing classical music on violins at one edge of the parking lot, far from all the people, but my bag is heading in their direction. At this point I am wondering if I am in a French New Wave film. The bag takes a right turn into an adjacent parking lot and just then one of the buskers puts down the violin and gives chase, runs about 40 yards and successfully chases down my bag. I give the guy $10, which is probably at least ten times the value of the bag, but it's more for the humanity and for what he is doing with his violin on this cold day in the midst of a world of suckage. 

So then I went into the grocery store and bought some pretzel Pop-Tarts because I felt like I really need to give them a try before I bear down on my diet. They are pretty bland.
