Music: 80's - what else do I listen to?
Mood: Bucolic (serene, carefree country lifestyle - for those of you like my O who asked me....."that's a real word?" Not really an adjective per-say but,...I kinda feel like a nice, spring meadow with purple bluebells today....)
Just wanted to share a couple of things I've been eating with you all. Hope I don't get too "high and mighty" but I do love the English language. I remember when I took my SAT's I got an almost perfect score on the vocabulary/reading section. My total score was only a 1160 though.......as you may guess....math and science has been my downfall for a LONG time. They're just so logical......thinking logically has never come easily for me (my organized A mother and pragmatic O husband can galdly tell you several hysterical stories :-) I even remember taking a Shakespeare class in high school for fun. I just loved the way his words flowed together so effortlessly. It made perfect sense to me with just a few footnotes. My classmates all thought I was nuts.....too bad for them!
My first find is compliant for AB's O's & those non-secreting A's (Tomas, are you listening?) And if your a nonnie O, your going to have issues with this one. But, at Whole Foods I found the most DELICIOUS Eggplant Parmigiana. It's just as good as the parmagiana we only find at our favorite Italian place in Brooklyn. In the freezer section of Whole Foods, in a green box, is a brand called Celentano Vegetarian. I could have sworn they were using riccota cheese. I was shocked to see that it was tofu! It tastes just like it! So yummy. If you can eat this, I highly encourage you to get a few for your fridge. It does contain a few Durum flour bread crumbs but unless your deathly allergic, it's just neutral for most of us. And as the doctor says, you don't have to go crazy if there's a tiny bit of avoid in your favorite dish.
Next, I made a dish just for my O yesterday and he adores it! (Bene for O's and Neutral for B's) I enjoyed a tuna fish sandwich on ezekiel myself that night :-)
Look on page 229 & 230 of Cook Right F.Y.T. Veal Stew with Fennel.
I, of course, couldn't find fennel, so I used some celery instead. I think I added too much (about 5 long, thick stocks) so.......it was more like veal and celery gloop than stew. But, my O LOVED it nontheless. I also added some beneficial red pepper to it for him. Definately try it. It does need to simmer for a long time but when something gets rave reviews, it's often worth it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Always read the ingredients on your veggie stock. I've been buying the big square containers of the broth from both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. And after I poured the last of my Trader Joe's brand in the veal stew, I realized that it's compliant for me but not for the O (leeks!) while the Whole Foods Organic brand is ok for him in one regard (white pepper) but it also has Safflower oil! A big Avoid for all but A secretors. But it also contains tomato puree so no good for those A's anyway! Grrrr......I, of course, bought 3 boxes......oh well.
