We took our Darling Daughter on a college campus visit over the weekend. The choices in the dorm cafeteria seemed better for Type A than they were for Type O. The salad bar was excellent with plenty of choices. The cooked vegetables were green beans and potatoes. We all steered clear of the potatoes, but the green beans were good. The problem was with the entrees. Our choices were lasagna, chicken fried steak, hamburgers, or sliced turkey. My husband, avoiding my eye, took the lasagna. DD went with a large salad. I took the chicken fried steak - no gravy. It's probably been two years since I've had chicken fried steak, and I let myself enjoy it.
On the way home Sunday, we stopped at a fast food restaurant. They had chicken fried chicken livers. In my pre-BTD days I loved them. Now, I saute chicken livers or grill them with onions. I don't know how long it's been since I've had them fried. One of the side orders was fried okra. This was another former favorite. A beneficial, I told myself, in spite of the flour coating. They were indeed delicious.
Of course, I paid for the wheat this morning with two pounds of water weight. Fortunately I can say no to chicken fried steak if there are other choices. Chicken fried chicken livers would be harder to turn down, but there is not a restaurant where I live that serves them. So, I'm safe until I'm traveling again.
