I’ve not been making the best decisions lately. Using salsa to replace fats and salt is a good idea. For an example of a bad idea, I bought a new cookbook on the Salsa’s of the world. Nope, the ingredient list for most of the salsas was so not of my world I couldn’t make them.
Yesterday I found a San Diego Cookbook at the store which had a whole chapter of simple salsa’s I can make.
Another bad decision. I bought a pound of ground turkey, and I used it the day after I bought it. The plastic on top had expanded. “But I just bought it,” I said to myself. And I used it…very bad decision. Why the heck did I do that? So out went dinner and out went the Geezer and foolish wife to dinner. Why didn’t I just take it back…she says hitting herself upside the head.
Yesterday, I made a decision to stop on the way home and buy some hamburger. Actual ground beef….not soy, not turkey, not a substitute. I can hear Bee yelling at me now….”Do you want to die?” With Mad Cow disease back in the system, she has a point. They are still feeding cows cows. They haven’t broken the cycle of the disease yet. But I bought beef and made meat loaf.
I’ve got to say. We really enjoyed that meatloaf.
