@Geezy56, it’s great it works for you so well!
Nice day again but warmer than before.
I had to fry some meat around noon (my low-cal but high meat, highprotein day worked well enough to avoid eating late but I got hungry early today), it was still late for my first meal so I just finished my leftover fried pork and ate these afterwards (some cottage cheese was left and I ate more butter):
I had several coffees as I had a headache and felt miserable in general… I do try no coffee and didn’t drink any in the morning or yesterday! I successfully talked myself out of it a few times but I am vulnerable when not feeling well and coffee does feel nice. I was hungry anyway and the egg and butter in it was good… It’s fine.
And meanwhile the CF card found its way to my computer again, I had lunch. Just a little fried pork, the leftover cottage cheese and 1-2 egg milky coffees. I probably will need a third meal… I will focus on fat a bit more from now on, it’s so odd, normally I can’t eat lean enough but if I heavily base my day on leanish pork, I don’t get enough fat, not even with a few eggs and a little other things. Not even if I munch on a little butter… But I don’t think eating much fatty dairy would give me good satiation anyway, maybe I will try out if I fancy eating like that… But I haven’t trained myself out of eating sour cream like no tomorrow to go back anyway.
Our greengage tree finally finished (I helped a little bit). I use the pressure cooker for cooking now (for Alvaro, I don’t need it most of the time. I will use it for cooking smoked pork hock, I dream about having a big piece all for me. Alvaro only eats the lean part and he needs almost all of it for the dish it was cooked in - we can’t put in more as it makes it too salty - and I end up with a little meat and all the fat and skin*. it’s still great but I want MORE sometimes. it’s one of the processed things I don’t like to eat just a tiny amount of), how nice
*Actually, I can grab more and provide him with cheesy fried fluffs… But I want both of us having fun with the hock, it’s nice. But I want much, I almost need it for all the fat. I could eat the fat with something but I prefer it with meat.
Now I desire some smoked hock and I don’t have any… Sigh. We don’t even plan shopping in the next weeks but fortunately it’s just some “it would be nice”, I won’t suffer, I can wait just fine
But I do need something fattier. Fried not so lean pork green ham is lovely, I use a little lard… But it’s still leaner than what I really, really enjoy. Or it’s fine on some days but I need my fatty meat here and there… So I will buy some fattier meat soon (locally, I can’t wait until the next big shopping), my lard is diminishing rapidly anyway.
If I can’t stand it, I will open my tinned cod liver… I do have supplies. We have grill sausages as well. The tins are for sudden emergencies when I can’t wait.
Good to see you back with a “decent sized” comment again, @Fangs!
(IDK how others use the term, when I say decent sized, it usually means something not little, not overly much, just right or close to it. Like a 21oz piece of meat is decent sized. Not too big, not too small )
It makes sense that you don’t need to talk a lot about zc anymore… Though I like when you do The others are lovely too but your comments have their unique flavor and I enjoy your enthusiasm.
I love talking about my fav dishes but I talk most when I struggle or experiment, need to figure out things… When things just work and all is chill and fine and no need to tweak things, I write less about what I actually eat (I still may and do wax poetry about my fav dishes). Anyway, now my base food is fried pork, I can’t talk about it particularly much and I rarely take a shot as it looks about the same every time… I can eat the stuff nearly every day in over a pound quantities, it’s so very odd still… I came a long way.
