Oh well I can;t just stay away completely… But I will go away again and try to find my way, I just went shopping and it was so so tiresome and the webshop order was messed up (we got the SMS that the parcel is there, we travelled there by car but didn’t get it. my gelatin!!! Alvaro goes again on Monday but it costs much extra money so he tries to get it back from someone)… I was so very much tired I napped after my lunch… My aching muscles didn’t help…
So! We got supplies Finally, pork belly! It turned out I can find some nice one, smoked and boiled as all in a normal supermarket but without lots of water, IDK about the sugar… And it was on sale. AND I could find some super meaty ones with barely any visible fat! Yay! It’s almost like ham A somewhat fatty one as it surely has it somewhere but not too much. So Alvaro happily makes scrambled eggs with it now
As for me (though I will enjoy the pork belly too), I bought plenty of pork jowl Alvaro considers it completely inedible but it’s not my problem. So I will have lovely fatty days, simple and cheap, hopefully.
I couldn’t buy meat but I still have plenty at home. Pork chuck is still the best thing ever for me but my actual piece is especially great, better than ever. Super fatty and it’s amazing just fried and cold…
I cooked the pork tongues so we have that too, Alvaro happily eats them as well, it’s good as we start to run out of eggs… So I will eat meaty and not eggy in the near future. Fine by me, I have variety. We bought plenty of cheese too (it seems they are on sale all the time now so we don’t need to buy them for double price compared to several months ago), quark, sour cream, Green yogurt… I bought pâté again as I still can’t make it myself but I will try. I just can’t buy pork liver easily, I think I will visit the butcher soon and get some nice heart too. But now I have more than enough organs to eat.
My tongue liquid converted into soup was nice but it’s better without the tongue water. It got duck necks and pork chuck with bone as usual, it’s a fine combo. I fried the fattiest pieces of the duck necks and got some lovely duck scrachings in the process… But it’s nothing compared to fried chuck (boiled chuck is great too. some lean pork in the soup is boring but fatty pork? yay! but I had to get off fat from the soup as I don’t like it fatty. I just like fatty meat pieces in it and I had them. Alvaro only ate a little duck neck - deboned by me). And I have a big bony piece of pork chuck and two over 1 kg slabs in my fridge… Mmmm. Future looks good eating wise.
I will come back if I put my things in order. I want some proper and coffeeless carnivore with a tiny eating window longer term. I almost run out of coffee so hopefully that part will be okay soon…
And food takes too much of my time still but no wonder on food shopping days… At least I am less on this forum now but still too much.
But I NEVER will be able to read back… It doesn’t mean I won’t try… But not now. SO tired. Folks, is it normal to be super tired after shopping? It’s always such a burden on me and Alvaro understands as he feels the same. At least we do it rarely. I really wouldn’t like to do it often even though it would be tinier then. I am fine with few mins shopping locally but I wouldn’t do that too often either. And a human needs so much food. And so many different items… Except some of you I suppose… It must be easy just to buy some fresh meat and little else… I am not there yet. (Of course I keep my eggs forever, most probably.)
But now we have so, so much food. Hopefully we can avoid shopping for several weeks except a few items Alvaro gets (eggs, the lean pork with the price cap, maybe sour cream but I try to use it sparingly, we have 330g Greek yogurt and 850g sour cream, it lasts for a long while if we are careful).
I want something super simple. Oh yep, that too. No coffee, proper carnivore, small eating window and SIMPLICITY.
