    Default What's for dinner?

    I am still trying to use some stuff up that Angela and I can't eat. I have
    done a pretty good job of it. There are still some gluten free burritos in
    the freezer, a box or two of chicken nuggets. A box or two of gluten free
    lasagna. Some cheese enchiladas. Angela actually can eat those. And there
    is some sort of Amy's vegetarian thingies that we all could eat. We just
    need to eat them because they are old.

    Looks like husband will start the new job on the 24th of next month so we
    still have time to feed him some of this stuff. We had a box of beef
    tamales that was in the garage freezer that needs to be eaten up by Nov. I
    brought it in and was sad to see that they contain chicken broth. So I
    can't eat them. I really wanted them! So Angela will be having those for
    dinner. She is not pleased. Although she likes tamales she doesn't much
    like beef. Husband loves beef but was in the hospital today and long story
    short it is gout which we all sort of knew. And beef is one of the worst
    things for gout. So he will be having some little chicken tacos that we got
    from Target.

    So that leaves me. I didn't want a hamburger patty. So I dug around and
    found an old meatloaf. It is less than thrilling. I tried making them with
    potato flakes as the filler and no binder. The flavor is just fine. But
    the texture is a bit mushy. I also have a can of creamed corn that needs to
    be used up. I will have some of that and toss the rest because I know
    nobody will eat it.

    I am cooking the remains of a bag of small red beans. There's not a lot of
    those but I will divvy them up three ways. And there is some salad to be
    used up. I have some other raw veg to put on that.

    We need to go to the store again tomorrow. We have a lot of food in the
    house. It's just mostly the non-perishable stuff. We don't have much in
    the way of meat. Not meat that my husband can eat anyway. I have some beef
    and ham but he can't eat those things.

    My husband was diagnosed with gout years ago, they gave his a med(don't
    remember the name) and he hasn't had any problems since then. We do eat beef
    in this house but not often, once and awhile we'll have steak...maybe once a
    month. I will make him a meatloaf every two months. We eat chicken,
    pork..sometimes ham, turkey, and fish. We haven't had any hamburgers since
    the big gall bladder attack, and the removal. We had pizza the other night
    with no affects, ate one slice and topping of one slice with salad. I will
    try a hamburger one of these days . My liver seems to be dumping the right
    amount of bile so far...don't want to take any chances yet I have a big
    freezer and keep it pretty well stocked...I am slowly throwing out old
    stuff. My husband worries about the trash bag being to heavy for the trash
    guy, so I can only throw away a couple of items per kitchen bag, which he
    puts into a big black bag , and he doesn't want the black bag to
    heavy...such a caring guy...LOL. We have a full pantry...I like to keep
    stocked up . I found a Haiti Pork chop recipe the other day and am trying
    it tonight. It has orange marmalade , and chipotle with adobo sauce. It just
    sounded good so thought I would try it. We'll have salad and hubby will have
    rice with his...or I might make a baked sweet potato to split.

    According to what I read online he has to avoid pork, lamb and also fish and
    shellfish. I have a turkey breast that I will make for him and Angela
    tonight unless she decides that she wants toasted cheese instead. And once
    I get her out of the shower, we will be headed to her school to get ready
    for it to start then off to shopping. I need to get some more veggies. I
    have celery and that is good. Apparently tomatoes and spinach are not. I'm
    going to make a big pan of stir fried rice with egg.

    My son was once thought to have gout. Fortunately, it turnedout not to
    be. He was given a diet plan by his MD and not put on the med Jaquie
    talked about. We looked at the diet and described it as "the diet from
    hell." It was competely counter to diabetes, very low in protiens and
    high in carbs. Not all fish was out, but IIRC salmon was the worst. Your
    husband should get a diet list from his doctor if at all possible. It wil
    helphim and you know what he will be albe to eat without causeing him
    nasty pain. As he will be away at his job for a large part of the time,
    he should know what he can eat whether he cooks for himself or eats in
    food service or restaurants or whatever.

    Yes he should know what he should eat. But does he care? No. So the best
    I can do is try to control what I bring into this house. The less
    complaining he does while he is here the better.

    Tonight he didn't wait for us to come home and ate something that wasn't the
    best. It was whole wheat pasta in Alfredo sauce with vegetables and that
    part was likely okay. But it had some cheese sausage in it make of pork.
    When I bought it I didn't realize that he was going to have a flare. He had
    not complained of any pain and frankly I sort of forgot about it. But he
    had been eating huge amounts of beef. I bought 5 pounds of beef roast.
    Angela had a normal portion. About 3 oz. I had only 2-3 bites with my
    meal. We ate this for 2 days. I had intended there to be food enough for a
    3rd meal but mostly all that was left was the vegetables and one small piece
    of meat. Which he wound up eating. We have both warned him repeatedly but
    he just does not seem to care.

    We got stuck at the school tonight. As usual they did something stupid.
    The student store was to be open from noon until 7:00. There was a BBQ from
    6:00 to 7:00 which we did not want to go to. But they were giving out the
    schedules during the BBQ. We did go earlier in the day and took care of the
    rest of what we needed to do. But the schedules were not available then.
    We had to go back. Because I knew that parking would be a nightmare and
    because I can't walk far, we got back there early and had to wait.

    And then I watched in horror as cars parked right behind me. This was not
    the first time this happened at that school. I could not get out easily. I
    had to inch my way out. And then I was still stuck because a line of cars
    were coming at me. They couldn't all back up and I couldn't possibly have
    backed all the way down the row I was in because so many cars were parked
    wrong and it was on a curve. I know for sure I would have hit something
    trying to back that whole way out.

    So we didn't get home till just a little while ago. And even though I did
    call him and tell him that I would make dinner when we got home, he just
    went ahead and ate the pasta. That's what he does. If I don't have a meal
    ready when he wants to eat, he will just eat whatever. Not a serving of
    baby carrots or a piece cheese or something to tide him over. He wants
    instant gratification. Grrrr...

    I had severe gout and had to go off the medication. Strict carb diet
    instead (but also lots of low carb veggies) and no gout attacks since.
    And naturally I was eating more meat with the low carb. I was told to
    make the diet more alkaline so it is weird that people prescribe high
    carb isn't it:

    Extremely Acid Forming Foods - with a pH of 5.0 to 5.5
    Artificial sweeteners, HFCS, Carbonated soft drinks & fizzy drinks ,
    Cigarettes , Flour (white wheat), Goat, Lamb, Pastries & cakes from
    white flour, Pork, Sugar, Beer, Brown sugar, Deer, Chocolate, Coffee ,
    Custard with white sugar, Jams, Jellies, Liquor , Pasta, Rabbit,
    Semolina, Table salt refined & iodized, Tea black, Turkey, Breads White
    / Wheat, White rice, commercial vinegar.
