I made ghee on Friday. I strain the ghee and add light olive oil to make my butter spread that I've blogged about before. Then I like to cook greens with the leftovers from the ghee-making. This time I cooked turnip greens, and I enjoyed them all weekend with ground beef.
One meal on the weekend is sure to be a bowl with all the leftovers from the week tossed in. I had yellow squash, green beans, carrots, 1 chicken liver, some canned salmon, and some dried beans. I grilled an onion and added half if it to the mix. It was tasty, and very filling.
I am going to have to find something else to order at my husband and daughter's favorite Italian restaurant. We ate there after church on Sunday. I've been getting "Meatballs in a boat." On the surface it looks like an excellent Type O choice: three meatballs with marinara sauce topped with mozzarella cheese and served with a side salad. There is no pasta.
However, I've begun to suspect that there is either a lot of breading in the meatballs or a lot of sweetening in the marinara. My weight was inexplicably up 3 pounds this morning. That usually means I've eaten wheat or corn. My weight will return to normal in a couple of days; I'm not worried about that. But the gain serves as a signal that I have eaten a stealth avoid.
The house dressing at this restaurant is a homemade Italian that I always thought was delicious. Now I see that it has too much vinegar for the Blood Type Diet. I requested plain olive oil. The oil they brought was delicious. It reminded me of the oil my sister often sends me from Europe. The oil I buy for everyday use is good quality oil, but it doesn't have the flavor that the premium brands have. It will be worth going back to this restaurant for the oil, even if I do have to find a new entrÃ©e.
