For just a bit, I thought this was gonna be a rant about Chet Atkins....one of the greatest guitarists to ever pick the instrument.

It doesn't sound bad but imagine how limited cooking is with no dairy, veggies, fish. It's like the never ending Atkins diet of meat all the time but with rice and potatoes (always cooked the same way due to above limitations)

Remember yours is temporary!!! Good luck
Picky Eaters, the bane of creative cooks and chefs everywhere. I have the same problem with DW. But I'm not trading her in. We kinda luv each other. If only I could get her tongue straightened out, so that she could enjoy the variety I love.

Well, this thread has been an interesting exercise.

SO came home from work tonight and announced she was not going to do the Atkins diet. She will just eat less.

I'm glad I didn't get all upset and go on a rant.

Cholent is a dish cooked overnight either on the stove or in a crock pot, so people have hot dish on Shabbos. Since one not supposed to cook on Shabbos but permitted to start a dish and leave it on from before Shabbos. It could be many things, often it is sort of stew.

Having grown up with a vegetarian mother that made no demands on any cook for her dietary needs, except herself, I simply let dieters take care of their own food requirements. And my dad had the answer for picky eaters: You don't like what's on the table? I'm sorry. Suppers over for you. I follow the examples of my elders.
