Thunderstorms have been rolling through the area most of the afternoon and evening, so the computer has been off. If I type fast, perhaps I can blog about the weekend's food before I hear the next roll of thunder or I start yawning, whichever comes first.
I was at school most of the day Saturday. We print the October student newspaper this week, and I needed to get ahead. I packed my lunch: sliced brisket, steamed broccoli with olive oil, acorn squash, and fava beans. The irony of this lunch is that I was so excited when I found canned fava beans at my regular grocery store. They are beneficial for my As, but my As don't like them. They are neutral for me, and I enjoy them.
Saturday was my husband's birthday. He requested a casserole for dinner that is definitely a Type A casserole. The only ingredient that is not a Type O avoid is ground turkey. My husband and daughter enjoyed the casserole. I made a salad with romaine lettuce, spinach, carrots and some of the ground turkey. He requested a cake that has no redeeming value for any blood type. I ate one piece in honor of the day, and spent the rest of the evening fighting the urge to eat anything with sugar. I won the fight, but it was not easy.
Sunday lunch was at a barbeque place. I had beef, my daughter had chicken, and my husband had turkey. There were several side order choices for the As. The only side for Os was green beans cooked with tomatoes, onions and lots of spices. The spices were what made it good. I wish I knew what they were.
Dinner tonight was a la carte. My husband had lentil soup and salad. My daughter had a dish of carrot salad, a dish of tuna salad, and a bowl of grapes. I had a salad made with shredded carrots, fresh spinach, and tuna, plus a bowl of the best Swiss chard I've ever cooked. I made it the same way I usually do, it must have just been really fresh.
