So much for molasses moving slowly.

I had a great conversation last year about the expression "Colder than molasses on a cold day in January".  A speed which is, apparently, fairly high.

though, you know... that might also depend on the temperature of the *molasses*. i imagine cold molasses moves a bit more slowly.

FreakDog - I did talk with my endocrinologist about Metformin and he said No, not yet. He wants me to try and do it with diet and excercise first.

Objectively, it kinda makes sense to give it a try without drugs first, but I must say that I was kinda disappointed.

2Dog - We've created an alternative goal to work up to: Mall walking at least 4 to 5 times a week. So it was not so much giving up on one goal as trading it for another.

What you might not be aware of is that Ginger and I are like tied at the hip, we go together everywhere but the restroom, and sometimes we help each other in there too. But that would be TMI, I am sure.

So instead of walking around the neighborhood, which Ginger is very uncomfortable with, we mall walk. I think that she's scared of getting hit by cars. There are no cars inside the mall. Makes sense.

So No, I am not giving up on the 10000 steps goal so much as restricting said paces to mall walks.



And in rainy Seattle, it is dry inside the covered mall.

Back to food - I have been subsisting on water, juice, and a little bit of apple and a little bit of oatmeal since my sinus surgery this last TUesday the 5th.

Basically anything that can be sipped through a straw and little bits of food that can be squeezed through partially opened lips.

And I have to balance breathing through my mouth with eating and drinking.

Fair enough...I hope that you're able to get things under control the "natural" way.  At least, though, you're aware of options, which probably won't require shots of insulin.

How do you guys make chicken soup? I boiled a spring chicken with some bulion, salt, black pepper, dill, carrots, celery, tomato, potato, and onion (don't have garlic at the moment). I also threw in some pasta, of course. Am I missing anything?

That sounds pretty good, N*S!

I make mine a little differently - celery, carrots, parsnips, leak, dill, and parsley (plus chicken, of course).  If I want carbs with it, I usually add Matzoh Balls.

I usually use wings instead of whole chicken (saves money) And I don't use pepper, dill or tomato. I don't like pepper and dill and I'm not into tomato in chicken soup. I like to add another root veggie like rutabaga or parsnip or turnip.  I sometimes add squash/zucchini and sweet potato.

Y'know, as I posted that, and as I now look at the leftover soup, I realized what was missing: the freakin potato! I knew something was missing. I think soup needs to have a root veggie or two. Parsnip -- hadn't thought of that. Oh, parsley (the dried-in-a-bottle kind you buy in the seasonings aisle at the grocery) was included. Forgot to mention it. :)

Hrm ... Matzoh balls ... yummmmmmmm.....

Oh, for what it's worth, I only recently started cooking, but I'm finding that I don't do such a bad job.

I like a meat lasagna. My dad used to make a good one. He was a good cook. I learned a lot of my cooking skills from him.

My dad also used to make fruit cake with a little alcohol in it this time every year. I kinda miss those now. He passed on in 1993.

That sounds lovely, Mo!

This weekend I made Chicken Chollent.  It's yummy, but I think I much prefer the lamb or brisket kinds...much more fatty goodness to seep into the rest of the concoction.

And tonight - Latkes!  Yay!  I love latkes....

Had a 1992 Chateau St Jean (Oregon?) Chardonney from Alexander Valley (California) grapes with crab yesterday and a 1997 David Bruce Chardonney last week with turkey.

And a 1986 Clos Du Bois Marlston, 61% Cabernet Sauvignoin, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot waiting another week for decanting prior to serving.

The Malbec is interesting, I'd not noticed this when first purchasing the case 15 years ago. Malbec vies with Cabernet Sauvignon for primacy in Argentina and to my palate is almost indistinguishable from Zinfandel.

Now carving the supplies down, only about 30 cases left.
