What's for Dinner? Thursday, February 19th, 2015

I'm still fasting today, and may or may not eat tonight, either. Just kind of experimenting to see how long it takes for me to become hungry, and since my wife is out of town for the week, I'm not really committed to making sure she's eating.

I have had nothing to eat since Tuesday night. Odd, I'm not really hungry, but I feel empty and miss the act of eating. It's a weird feeling.

Regardless of what I do tonight, I am definitely having breakfast tomorrow morning.

So what's everyone else having?

I've got roasted cream of mushroom soup, a harvest vegetable side, roasted asparagus with birch syrup dark chocolate balsamic vinegar glaze (and lemon thyme compound butter), spinach-strawberry salad with a dark chocolate balsamic vinegar-tahini dressing (to die for...yum, yum, yum), and Bredie-influenced roasted veggies. Where are my tasting friends when I need them?

Red Beans & Rice
A can of organic, low sodium red beans into a crock pot and toss in some lightly fried Kielbasa sausage (I don't care for andouille), onion, garlic, chicken broth and Louisiana Hot Sauce on a bed of rice and a side of S.F. Sourdough bread.

I have a pot of chili verde simmering on the stovetop. A skilletful of corn bread to go along with it will appear closer to dinner time.

Probably just TJ's eggplant hummus with pita bread, and a salad. Not very exciting, but I've been doing a bunch of cleaning today and don't want to mess up the kitchen.

Well done for fasting....just water? I have done a fair bit of fasting and detoxing in my time; these days I favour detoxing since fasting is not recommended for high blood pressure plus I read that long fasts can slow down the metabolism. I think I could write a book about the beneficial effects.

Yes I was surprised not to be immediately hungry but I did get coffee withdrawals, e.g. headaches - how about you?

So, on to the topic. Tonight I had 2 kinds of fish baked (reduced in shops) i.e. turbot and monkfish (the latter my first taste of - not overly impressed...more texture than flavour). Had it with mash and brussel sprouts (tartare sauce on the side).

I only ate half of each fish since I will be making them into fishcakes tomorrow. (I'd have preferred using some smoked fish as am sure it would have more flavour).

We closed on selling our house. It was late so we decided to eat out. Anthony's Coaled Fired Pizza. Big mistake. We loved our first experience, but this time we had way over priced, below Little Caesars's quality pizza. Will never go back.

Leftover beef pot roast. I made so much the first go-round that we now have leftover leftovers.
