If I can't peel it, I can't eat it.. even if it's organic: duck n vegetable sweet-chilli stir fry.

Mags just, my laptop is unable to photograph my dinner tonight, but it's merely what they call a TV dinner here, it's meatloaf and potatoes some dates, and herbal tea with rum. Scrumptious, no, and barely enuf for a Girl Scout, but it's food, and that what matters, beats a run for a quarter pounder with cheese.

It's certainly healthier than a quarter pounder with cheese, but oh to be able to have a quarter pounder with cheese when one wants one (sigh)

Nice touch.. with the rum in the herbal tea ;) I'm having quite the dry February (as opposed to January) myself but indulging in an alcoholic beverage here and there when out, so not very often. I'm sure my liver is thanking me for it.

I don't know.. but I'm sure Jerkey enjoyed it. :)

Same dinner as yesterday.. followed by political activity until further notice.. accompanied by a rum and grape juice spritzer. Refreshing.

No! Make me :P

But, getting back to being serious.. my meals are currently my life and my life my meals, so it's about more than just a picture of a meal, but I thought that people would have gotten that by now. Silly me for expecting so much. :|

I had 4 chicken wings and a rum/grape spritzer for dinner... does that make me 4 chicken wings and a rum/grape spritzer? it's nutrient contents perhaps.. until those nutrients are utilised, and then what am I?

I feel a crab and (peeled) courgette supper coming on, later on..

Eating animals makes you ugly, it's a fact of nature. There was this vegetarian bitch who was 70 years old, she was hot and as bangable as a 30 year old porn star.

A fact of nature? Link please..

Then go find a 70 year old vegetarian to have relations with.


Dinner for the last two days: spiced crab salmon & vegetable broth.. light and refreshing.

Merlin's Magic...fried diced potatoes, green peppers, onions, bacon. After which, melt/mix in loads of shredded cheddar cheese and top with ranch dressing. I am not terribly fond of ranch dressing, but it really makes the dish yummy.

I would not keep sea food for two days, but then again I would not eat crab.

It's fresh cooked crab.. not raw, and the broth is eaten the next day, so overnight.. not 2 days later.

Do you not indulge because of the bible, or just because of your own personal preference to refrain?

You'd think that with my ongoing gut woes that I'd be sensitive to such foods, but the only thing I'm sensitive to are the added chemicals in food... I foresee more crab/seafood broth over the warmer coming months.. very light on the palette, yet deceivingly filling on the gut.

Onglet steak.. with courgette and white sweet-potato accompaniment. I prefer white sweet-potato to orange, like I prefer white yam to yellow.. both subtler in flavour, but firmer of texture.

It makes sense. Crabs are scavengers and feed from the bottom of the sea/rivers, on what has settled there and is rotting.

Compare your pictures.

The 'Shield friendly' at least looks edible.

Mags, I think you should become a food photographer. Yep, drop all your other hopes and dreams and cave to the pressures of expensive camera/lighting equipment and Photoshop (there's the big difference) because the crowd is ungrateful of your sharing. Or you could :obscene-birdiedoublered: to them all.

I don't require you to be a professional chef and I find it interesting what you can eat. Sorry it's so little though, we each have our crosses to bear (although with this crowd you may be carrying two). #-o

All seafood (salmon, mussels, oysters, crab etc.) are farmed.. have been for years.. not sure about other countries though..

Compare your pictures.

They both look edible, just not to you.. due to your seafood bias, or bias in general.

The muddy colour is due to the aubergine, so nothing to do with the crab.. that's an impossibility.

My food concerns and yours are different, and my choices.. extremely limited, so no colourful preserved produce for me. :D

I'm finding it all highly amusing, and will continue to share/to spread the love. ;)

Thanks WendyD... I've gotten used to the limited choices, but my feelings will always be peaks and troughs about it all and the allergy in general.

They are not a cross.. now that would be giving them a position of importance, wouldn't it. Emotional triggering is such a simple and very basic transparent tactic.. again, amusing at best. ;)

Corned beef, red cabbage and green cabbage, potatoes and maybe something else. After I root around a bit, let's see what turns up. :mrgreen:
