Thank you! It is a good idea, I definitely need some sauce for my leaner meats when I don’t want to convert them into sausage meatballs… I just realized during showering that I should have made some mustard sauce (yolk, butter, mustard) for my too lean pork, it worked wonderfully last time!
But I opened a box of cream so nothing is in my way to make an alfredo sauce! I probably will like it looking at the ingredients, I don’t remember ever eating that, maybe it happened in a restaurant but who remembers that?
I enjoy my fattier roasts just with salt but a good sauce makes wonders with the leaner, chewier meat, I cut it into tiny cubes, easier to chew… (I often think about how good it would be to get sharper teeth when one gets crowns. but no, they are thicker and even blunter than my original teeth were…)
I have tracked, it seems I got about 170g protein. Ooops. Maybe the fact I wasn’t hungry at dinnertime meant I didn’t need more food… But I could eat some so I did…
Food cost is a bit higher today due to the smoked pork hock (it was still lovelier than the very lean pork so I focused on it)… No idea about my fat intake due to the unknown fat content of the hock but I ate more than yesterday. And now I am quite full and hope I can pull off an OMAD tomorrow, I am so curious how much food I need there, it would make things more convenient… But it’s up to my body, mostly, I merely won’t eat without a proper hunger or other need.
Somewhat disappointing meat or not, the cats VERY gladly eat up whatever we don’t want. They got some soft fatty skin and I dropped a tiny piece of meat too… They were elated. I never had choosy cats. It’s easy to find cheap plant-y cat food they dislike but if it’s animal, they love it. They don’t eat everything they have caught though but the rodents usually get eaten (with some organs and sometimes a nose or a foot left on our doormat, of course). And fortunately they usually catch rodents. We aren’t happy when it’s something else but we can’t do much about it, they are free spirited outside cats, we didn’t even bring them here except Tofu but she was meowing on a tree as a tiny kitten since a whole day at that time, in winter. We didn’t need another cat but Alvaro couldn’t let her die. She was pretty anyway, we like calicos If I can’t have an orange tabby, a calico is the second best thing (it has some orange tabby in it, after all). I still admire her looks every time I see her.
While it’s not the cat thread, we bring all kind of stuff here so… This is Tofu And she totally deserves this lame name I love her zillion times more than I ever did the food tofu, of course, I still don’t get why people eat that stuff (and I accidentally found a recipe today, tofu bacon! omg. maybe it’s still better than the ricepaper bacon…).
